    Captain, Oh Captain !
    With fans of a billion.
    Thankyou for all the memories.
    And now you have left us freeze.

    2007 WT20, WC2011, CT2013.
    All of them I saw in teen.
    The helicopter shot,
    that only spectators caught.
    The lightning quick stumping,
    Fastest than a pick pocket.
    The no look run outs.
    The DRS's without doubts.
    The run out against Bangladesh,
    still in mind so fresh.
    Converting 1's to 2's like a cheetah,
    seemed like it was your mantra.
    The WC winning six,
    leaving Sri Lanka in a fix.
    Winning trophies and handing over to a youngster,
    We all know you were never a boaster.
    Fans coming down to touch your feet,
    your best finishes never took a back seat.
    183* v/s SL, 148 v/s PAK or
    15 of 6 v/s SL, 13 of 6 v/s OZ or 11 of 6 v/s WI.
    You have never failed our expectations.

    From a Ticket Collector to a Trophy Collector.
    From the maiden match run out to the heartbreaking WC19 run out,
    we have lived with you Mahi.

    You aren't a pal do pal ka shayar.
    You are one in a lifetime.
    An idol for me and so many more.
    Let the camouflage do the talking now.
