Lifeline: Dhoni's teachers want him to complete B.Com degree

The Indian captain, burdened by an overdose of cricket and endorsement deals, missed his college exams after enrolling for a degree in 2008.

An overload of cricket and endorsement deals may have forced Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni to miss his graduation examination, but education, which has no age barrier, will give him a second chance.

Teachers at St Xavier's College, Ranchi are eager to see Dhoni complete his B.Com degree, a feather that is missing from the World Cup-winning captain's burgeoning hat. Dhoni's teachers want their celebrity student to re-enroll for the three-year course.

Dhoni has registered for the B.Com course in 2008. On Monday, 1790 students of his batch passed out from St Xavier's College. "Yes, he (Dhoni) would have been among the students who got the degrees," Principal Nicholas Tete said.

"Dhoni enrolled in 2008, and his registration is valid for five years. And he can renew afresh, (if he wants to complete the course)," Tete said, reports PTI.

"We had prepared study material for his first semester and sent them to him. (But) he did not respond," the principal said. Dhoni, who has office administration and secretarial practice as his subjects, had completed Plus-II in 1999.

"A teacher feels good giving away degrees to successful students, and the students feel happy after completing a course successfully," Jayant Sinha, one of the teachers in the college, said, adding happiness would have been doubled had Dhoni completed the course and got the degree.

"However, he can complete the course in future. Education is a continuing process," Sinha, who is also the college dean, added.
