Born in 1981, Dhoni made his International debut in 2004 and was handed the captaincy in 2007. The 39-year-old became the first captain to win all of the three major ICC trophies. The boy from Ranchi bowed out of test cricket in 2013 and handed over the captaincy reigns of limited-overs cricket to Virat Kohli in 2017.

Dhoni’s quick work behind the stumps, his presence of mind, the cool demeanour, his finishing skills are only a few attributes out of several which has captured the hearts of millions. The wicket-keeper batsman was last seen in the 2019 World Cup, where the team were agonizingly knocked out by the Kiwis in the semi-finals.
