One of the most loved and scrutinised cricketer to have ever born in India - Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the perfect story for every small town boy/girl who wants to make it big in life. Hailing from the cricketing backwaters - Jharkhand, Dhoni is unarguably the second most popular player in the cricket frenzy nation after 'God' Sachin Tendulkar. Going by the statistics, Dhoni is India's most successful captain and under his leadership, India have won the top prize in all formats of the gentlemen's game - the inaugural World Twenty20 on his captaincy debut in 2007, No.1 Test ranking for 18 months starting December 2009, and the 50-over World Cup in 2011 in Mumbai. He is also the first captain in the world to win three different ICC trophies. Dhoni also led India to memorable 2013 Champions Trophy triumph in England. During his 14-year long international career, Dhoni has played an integral part in many of India's famous victories. For his impressive and match-winning skills, the 36-year old batsman has also been christened with the tag of 'one of the best finisher in the sport', especially in the limited-overs format. However, with age catching up - Dhoni's batting abilities are not the same but his god-like reflexes and impeccable instincts behind the stumps still makes him an indispensable asset in Team India. With the countdown of 2019 world cup already begin, India still need the services of one of its biggest stalwarts who is responsible for taking the team to insurmountable heights.
