Happy Birthday MS Dhoni: India’s ‘Captain cool’ turns 39.

Though at the start of his run in the Indian Team Dhoni encountered some initial hiccups, his 148 against Pakistan in Vizag in 2005 showed the world the potential he possessed. But that was just the start of the hurricane.

Due to his ability to hit big shots at will, Dhoni proved to be one of the most effective players in chasing targets and gradually he grew into one of the world’s best run-chasers. His match-winning fifty in a run-chase in a 2005 tri-series match against Zimbabwe remains one of his most memorable innings. A month later, his brilliant 183 in a run-chase against Sri Lanka cemented Dhoni further as one of the best finishers of the game.
A few years back, Dhoni led India to the ODI World Cup and the hopes were strong with the cricket ‘s biggest tournament being played at home. Although he did not have the best of tournaments as a batsman Dhoni, he still believed in himself and made the call for himself in the final to promote the batting order over Yuvraj Singh. The decision once again proved right, like Dhoni, the best finisher of the Indian Team.
Dhoni’s record as captain has also been remarkable in the Indian Premier League, as he has led Chennai Super Kings to three titles over the years. In addition to his batting prowess and captaincy history, over the past decade, Dhoni has also been one of the world’s best wicketkeepers.

He redefined tactics that would trigger lightning-quick run-outs and stumps. But as he remains focused on his duties of keeping, at all times, his thinking mind is always glued to what happens in the game. For this reason, he was also one of the most successful players to make DRS calls from behind the stumps. Perhaps, this is why the fans on social media have now termed DRS as the ‘Dhoni Review System’.
