“God does not come to save you …”: 9 years after winning the champion trophy, fans remember MS Dhoni’s epic quote | Cricket News

On 23 June 2013, the Indian cricket team led by MS Dhoni completed an unforgettable fightback against England in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy to win the prestigious tournament for the second time in its history. It was India’s first complete victory as he had to share the trophy in 2022 with Sri Lanka. The victory was also memorable as it completed MS Dhoni’s set of all three major ICC trophies as captain. He remains the only international captain to have won the ICC T20 World Cup (2007), the ICC World Cup (2011) and the ICC Champions Trophy (2013).

It was also the last time India won an ICC tournament. Indian cricket fans therefore celebrated that moment again on social media on Thursday. #MSDhoni was trending on Twitter and fans remembered a wonderful quote from the former Indian captain, which he told Nasser Hussain during the presentation ceremony after the final.

“It’s important to be positive. I said ‘let’s look for a good start. Something very critical. Do not think about the result and the first and most important thing was: Do not look up, God does not come around you “You have to fight it out. You are the No. 1 team and let’s play like that. If we lose they will have to score the runs, we will not make it easy for them,” said Dhoni.
