A busy cricketing timetable has taken its toll on the academic ambitions of Captain Cool.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni failed to even appear in the first semester exam for B. Com after enrolling 5 years ago at a Ranchi college. Dhoni, a B. Com student at St Xavier's College, could not pass in even one semester as he had been absenting from exams due to his preoccupations. His result was marked as absent. The college had made every possible effort to help him. It had even him the specially prepared study material but he did not respond.
Dhoni, who opted for Office Management and Secretarial Practice in B. Com, had completed his Plus-II in 1999.
