“Cricket Won’t Get Another Captain Like Him”- A Twitter Thread Proves Why MS Dhoni Is The Best Skipper Of All Time

MS Dhoni was the captain of the Indian cricket team for a decade. He was surprisingly named the captain for the ICC T20 World Cup 2007. Not many fans gave India a chance in that tournament because the seniors of the team did not participate, and the inexperienced names traveled to South Africa for the mega event.

But playing under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, the players brought their ‘A-game to the table and defeated the world’s best teams to win the ICC T20 World Cup. Soon after, Dhoni became India’s captain in all three formats of cricket.

India became the world’s number one Test team, and in 2011, they became the first team to win the Cricket World Cup trophy on home soil. Dhoni-led India to the 2011 World Cup title. He won the Man of the Match award in the final for his 91-run knock that helped India trounce Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium.

Two years later, Dhoni led India to the ICC Champions Trophy title in England. A few years later, Dhoni stepped down as the captain and handed over the team’s reins to Virat Kohli.

MS Dhoni holds several records in the captaincy department

An image has gone viral on Twitter, where a user shared the list of records held by MS Dhoni as the captain of the Indian team. The thread shared by the Twitter user has gone viral on the micro-blogging platform. It is a thread detailing his records in all three formats. Here’s a look at it:
