Read some interesting facts about our Captain Cool – M S Dhoni on his 37th birthday

MS Dhoni is the only captain till date in international cricket, who has won all tournaments organised by the International Cricket Council (ICC). Dhoni, who was heralded as the Indian captain right before the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup 2007, began his captaincy tenure with one of the most memorable wins of his chequered career. The inaugural T20 World Cup turned out to be one of the most entertaining editions, with India and Pakistan clashing twice and Dhoni’s men winning on both the occasions. Four years later, in 2011, Dhoni guided India to their second win in 50-over World Cup tournaments, when his side trumped Sri Lanka in the final at Mumbai.

Dhoni is easily the best Indian skipper ever as far as numbers are concerned. In 60 Tests as captain, he won 27, and lost 18. Dhoni’s record in limited-overs cricket remains enviable, as in 194 ODIs as captain, Dhoni has won 107. In 70 T20Is — most for any international captain — Dhoni has 40 victories.
