MS Dhoni is well-known for his astute captaincy, wicketkeeping, batting traits, swift stumping, quick running between the wickets, last ball six, helicopter shots, ICC trophies and so on. His contribution to Indian cricket is so good that it cannot be put 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 giving up international captaincy on January 4, 2017, he still contributed to the team as a wicketkeeper-batsman.
Dhoni’s last ever international appearance came against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-final. He retired from all forms of 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.
Harbhajan Singh takes a dig at MS Dhoni
Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer, Harbhajan Singh took a dig at MS Dhoni’s World Cup 2011 win on Star Sports. “When Australia wins the World Cup at that time everyone says ‘Australia won the World Cup’. When India won the World Cup at that time, everyone said, ‘MS Dhoni won the World Cup’. So, the rest of the 10 players went to drink Lassi?”
“What did the other 10 players do? What did Gautam Gambhir do? It’s a team game. When 7-8 players play well only then only your team will progress,” the former off-spinner added.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni is actively playing in the Indian Premier League. He is the captain of Chennai Super Kings. Recently, they were beaten by Mumbai Indians, which ended their hopes in qualifying for the playoffs.
