He has redefined success in Indian cricket but Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s college results had ‘fail’ written against his name today due to a “clerical error“.

Despite marking him ‘absent’ way back in July, Dhoni was shown to have ‘failed’ the B.Com part-I exams before the authorities of his St. Xavier’s College removed the list from the college notice board.

“It was a clerical error. The list has been removed immediately. When he did not give examination how can he fail?” the principal, Nicholas Tete said.

Dhoni’s course is of five years and he can complete the semesters during that period, he added.

On July 11, the Controller of Examination, A K Sinha, had said that Dhoni’s result would be shown as ‘absent’ because the cricketer missed both his semesters.

After completing his schooling from the DAV school nearly a decade ago, Dhoni took admission to the college last year to complete graduation.

He is entitled for flexi-attendance due to his busy international cricketing schedule.
