Mahendra Singh Dhoni commonly known as MS Dhoni born on 7 July 1981 is an Indian cricketer who captained the Indian team in limited overs formats from 2007 to 2016.
He is an attacking right handed middle order batsman and wicket keeper and one of the greatest finishers in limited overs cricket.
Dhoni holds numerous captaincy records such as most wins by an Indian captain in Tests and ODIs, and most back to back wins by an Indian captain in ODIs.
Under Dhoni’s captaincy, India won the 2007 ICC World Twenty20, the CB Series of 2007–08, the 2010 Asia Cup, the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup and the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy.
When India defeated England in the final of the Champions Trophy on June 2013 in England under Dhoni’s captaincy, Dhoni became the first captain to win all three ICC limited overs trophies that is World Cup, Champions Trophy and the World Twenty20.
Dhoni’s first international debut was an ODI against Bangladesh at Chittagong in December 2004, which was part of a 3 match bilateral series. In this match Dhoni came in to bat at No. 6 and turned his first ball to the leg side and tried to take a single across scamper but non striker Mohammad Kaif denied this.
Unfortunately, by the time he turned around and got back to his crease, but the future Indian great was run out by Khaled Mashud. Yet the match was won by India by 11 runs and Mohammad Kaif won the Man of the Match award for his 80 runs.
