Heart Of India

M.S Dhoni: Heart Of India is one of the most popular Indian cricketer best remembered for leading the Indian ODI team to its second World Cup win in 2011. He made his ODI debut for the national team on 23 December 2004, against Bangladesh and went on to serve as the captain of the Indian ODI team from 2007 to 2016. He debuted as a Test player against Sri Lanka on 2nd December 2005 and led the team in Test cricket from 2008 to 2014. Known for his aggressive playing style, he is revered as one of the best “finishers” in the limited over the format of the game.

Also known for his excellent wicket-keeping skills, he had always been a gem to the Indian team even in some very hard situations. He is also one of the most successful Indian captains and holds a number of records for his captaincy. Notably, the Indian team became the No.1 Test team in 2009 under his captaincy. He also led the Indian team to win the 2007 ICC World Twenty20 and the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy that’s why I call her M.S Dhoni: Heart Of India. While his achievements in the IPL format often get overshadowed by his international records, he also helped his team, Chennai Super Kings, win IPL twice in 2010 and 2011.
