MS Dhoni might have become a legend in Indian cricket over the last fifteen years, but he had humble ambitions when he started out.

Wasim Jaffer, a former teammate of his during his early years, revealed a dressing room anecdote about the Jharkhand stumper from his earliest days in the India team after his debut in 2004. Jaffer said that Dhoni had once said that he wanted to make Rs 30 lakhs from playing cricket so that he could live the rest of his life in peace in Ranchi, his hometown.

When a fan asked Jaffer what his favourite memory of Dhoni was, Jaffer said, “In his 1st and 2nd year with the Indian team, I remember he said, he wants to make 30 lakhs by playing cricket. So, he can live peacefully for the rest of his life in Ranchi.”

Dhoni was to become a sensation in international cricket in the years to follow. He took just 42 innings to become the number 1 ranked ODI batsman, becoming the fastest batsman to do so in the history of the game.

He led India to the 2007 T20 World Cup trophy and then the 2011 World Cup trophy. He is reported to have a net worth of around INR 800 crore, a far cry from the relatively humble ambitions he had started out with.
