MS Dhoni turns 37 on July 7.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, one of India's most favourite and revered cricketers, has turned 37 on July 7. 

His presence on the field captivates every fan's hearts, his batting keeps fans engrossed and his swift wicket-keeping leaves all gobsmacked. Since making his debut in 2004, a young lad from Ranchi with long hair was not considered captain material at the time but that is one of the many qualities he possesses, and that is proving everyone wrong with his actions. 

He is the first and only captain to win it all with the Men in Blue - ICC World T20 Cup (2007), ICC World Cup (2011) and ICC Champions Trophy (2013). He has an endless list of records and trophies in his illustrious cabinet and yet is still shattering and making new ones.

One of the most prolific cricketers Team India has ever had, at the age of 37, Dhoni plays a vital role in the limited-overs format after he announced his retirement from Test cricket in December 2015. 

This year is also quite auspicious for the the former skipper has he led Chennai Super Kings to win the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League and has won it thrice. 

His performances have been often scrutinised due to his age, but his form and his work on-field for the team has assured him a ticket to the 2019 World Cup. 

On July 6 2018, a day before his birthday, Dhoni reached another milestone as he became the third Indian after Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid to play 500 International matches for India. 

Wishes poured in all across the globe for India's favourite cricketer and it is none other than former Team India opener, Virender Sehwag, who leads the way for 'Captain Cool' and as always, Sehwag's way of wishing people has been special. Take a look.
