He became the 12th player to enter the ODI 10,000 run club and the fifth fastest player to clinch the feat. After Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, MS Dhoni became the 4th Indian to clinch the feat. Sometimes we just run short of adjectives to describe MSD in one word. He has done so much for India and is still extending his valuable contributions to the Indian cricket team.

Digging a bit deep, he is good at rotating the bowlers in crunch situations of the game, he is a good sprinter between the wickets. His street-smart wicketkeeping skills such as taking good catches, effecting lightning fast stumpings are well-known. MS Dhoni has an unbelievable judging skill when it comes to taking DRS and many times, he got the better of the umpires by proving that his judgements were as sharp as a knife.

He carved out a reputation for himself as the best asset to the team and that sums up the essential MS Dhoni for you! The special thing about him is that he remains calm and composed in pressure situations and that’s the reason why he has always taken the team home by pulling off the ropes from the jaws of the defeat. He never lets the negativity get the better of him and that’s why he is so successful.

The only captain with three ICC trophies has given up international captaincy on January 4, 2017. But still, he has extended his services as a wicketkeeper-batsman. He has always worked behind the scenes to offer some crunch tips to Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in the deciding phase of the game.
