He is additionally the main player to commander in 50 or more matches in each of the three configurations separated from being the main skipper to win every one of the three ICC Trophies – World Cup, WT20 and Champions Trophy.

Having made his global introduction in 2004, Dhoni rapidly ascended the positions in Indian cricket. He was named commander of the T20I side in 2007 and had an enormous effect as he drove the group to the inaugural World T20 title. He then turned into the ODI skipper after Rahul Dravid surrendered the post, and inevitably, rose to full-time Test captaincy once current India mentor Anil Kumble resigned. He surrendered Test captaincy and resigned from the longest type of the amusement in 2014 however kept on captaining the side in restricted over’s.


His last arrangement as commander came against New Zealand at home, where he drove the Indian side to a 3-2 arrangement win.

Mr Rahul Johri, Chief Executive Officer of the BCCI said, “On the sake of each Indian cricket fan and the BCCI, I might want to express gratitude toward MS Dhoni for his extraordinary commitment as the skipper of the Indian group over all arrangements. Under his authority, Indian group has touched new statures and his accomplishments will stay carved everlastingly in the archives of Indian cricket.”

As he gradually however most likely strolls into the nightfall, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, is ensuring that dissimilar to the initial segment of his profession, his last few stages are all around practiced and very much coordinated. It might be contended that Wednesday night is not really the best time to make expensive declaration, yet then when the man being referred to happens to be India’s best cricket skipper, significantly Father Time’s delays.



That Dhoni will never lead India on a cricket field is difficult to comprehend, for, independent of whether he was wearing Test coordinate “whites” or constrained overs ‘blues’, Dhoni was, and will dependably, remain a warrior. The bravery with which he moved toward fights made him a characteristic pioneer. It was simply following three years that Dhoni was depended with the employment of driving a cluster of ‘T20 freshmen’s in the World Cup’s most brief form in 2007, yet Dhoni was at that point a pioneer of the rising gathering of players in the changing area by then.

Dhoni’s journey for fame started from the tribal hinterland of Ranchi went through Kharagpur, which gloats of the world’s longest railroad stage and the Kolkata Maidan before he arrived in the Indian changing area.


A strongly private individual, Dhoni is known to open up just in the organization of his dear companions and partners. A man of basic taste and an unshakable confidence in his own particular capacity, Dhoni has dependably depended on his impulses while deciding, both on and off the field. Also, by his own particular confirmation, he, and his group, has increased much by keeping things straightforward in the psyche.

Disregarding his super fame, his companions demand that their “Mahi” has not changed by any stretch of the imagination. Dhoni, who began off as a ticket gatherer with the South Eastern Railway, has since quite a while ago exchanged his dark coat for planner suits. The streaming brilliant mane, that once drew esteem from previous Pakistan president Parvez Musharraf, has been supplanted by a spiky, very much gelled wipe that has been turning gray at a disturbing rate.



A significant part of the credit for cleaning Dhoni’s crude cricket aptitudes must go to Greg Chappell, the obstinate Australian mentor under whom he bloomed as a batsman and transformed from a goalkeeper to wicket-manager , however the way in which he keeps on stealing himself away the field says a lot about the man’s certainty.

For a residential community kid, Dhoni has taken care of distinction and his fortunes much superior to a hefty portion of his forerunners. Truth is told he is the first of the few residential community young men, who have enhanced Indian cricket in the new thousand years.

For a natural kid, ‘Helicopter Man’ Dhoni has showcased himself well. Subsequent to driving India to triumph in the 2011 World Cup, Dhoni turned into the most looked for after Indian cricketer as different brands fells over themselves to advance their items.

In an activity pressed 12-year global profession, Dhoni has tasted extraordinary achievement in every one of the three configurations of the diversion, including the spectacular IPL. Off the field he has made his millions as well. He is not done yet. On the off chance that his durable casing licenses, he can without much of a stretch continue for two or three more years and bow out in 2019 post the ICC World Cup that will be his fourth.
