Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s simplicity and honesty have never been in doubt. The down-to-earth personality is a huge inspiration to all cricket followers. Known for the knack of captaincy, wicketkeeping, batting traits, swift stumping, quick running between the wickets, last ball six, helicopter shots, ICC trophies and so on, his contribution towards Indian cricket is so good that it cannot be put it in words.
MS Dhoni has 3 ICC trophies as a captain – ICC World Cup 2007, ICC World Cup 2011 and ICC Champions Trophy 2013, the only captain in the history of the sport to do so. Even after given up international captaincy on January 4, 2017, he still contributed to the team as a wicketkeeper-batsman.
MS Dhoni has retired from international cricket on August 15, 2020. The news was confirmed by MS Dhoni himself through the Instagram post. MS Dhoni has represented India 90 Tests, 350 ODIs and 98 T20Is.
However, he has been playing for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League before the tournament was suspended due to coronavirus cases inside the bio bubble. BCCI confirmed that the IPL 2021 will resume on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates.
MS Dhoni will be looking forward to leading his troops once again in the UAE. In the last season in the UAE, CSK failed to make it to the playoffs for the first time in history and ended up finishing 7th in the points table. However, this season, CSK started with a positive note. They are second in the table with 5 wins and 2 defeats and one more victory will take them to the top spot.
During his international career, MS Dhoni has always worked behind the scenes to offer some crunch tips to Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in the deciding phase of the game. 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.
MS Dhoni has a great admiration for the Indian Army. He is an honorary rank-holder for time being. He himself once told that he would serve the Indian army once he retires from cricket
