Kolkata: Dhoni, the former Indian Cricket team captain turns 37 on Saturday. Never-give-up attitude has led Indian cricket team to several victories since his international debut in 2004.
Dhoni started to play for India back in 2004 in an ODI against Bangladesh and has played 318 matches since then. The right-hand batsman has accumulated 9967 runs in the ODIs so far.
Known for his swift glovework, he has taken 297 catches and has been involved in 107 stumpings. While Dhoni is still a part of the limited overs side, he hung his boots from the longer format in 2014.
MS has been the only captain in the history of cricket who has won three ICC trophies. India first lifted the inaugural World T20 in 2007 under his captaincy and then won the ICC World Cup 2011. India followed the 2011 World Cup win with a victorious triumph in 2013 Champions Trophy. Dhoni stepped down as limited-overs captain in January 2017.
Dhoni failed many attempts to join team India but he didn’t lose hope. Dhoni’s dedication to his work is beyond exceptional. He has managed to not get distracted by his personal life on more occasions than one.
