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.
