Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a professional Indian cricketer who represents the country in tests, One Day Internationals as well as Twenty 20 Internationals and is also the captain of the national side. Dhoni earned himself a place in the folklore of Indian cricket when he led his young side to a World Cup win in 2011 on home soil, the countrys first triumph in 28 years beating the likes of Australia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka on the way to the title. He made his One Day International debut for the country against Bangladesh in 2004 and played his first test match against Sri Lanka in 2005. The team had long been searching for a young wicket keeper who could bat as well as the then team captain Rahul Dravid could not cope with all the responsibilities and in Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the team found a very good wicket keeper and an explosive batsman who could take apart any bowling lineup on his day.

Dhoni was made the captain of the side after the Indian cricket teams disastrous World Cup campaign in 2007 and his first assignment was to take the team to the inaugural World Twenty 20 Championship that was held in South Africa and he showed the whole world his leadership capabilities when he took a young and inexperienced side to the title, to lift Indias first major trophy since the Champions Trophy win in 2003. He also led the side to victory in the Commonwealth Bank series in 200708 held in Australia and became the first captain to lead his side to victory in this trinations trophy held in Australia in almost two decades. Dhoni also led the side to two consecutive test series wins against the Aussies in 2008 and 2010 to win the BorderGavaskar trophy. But as mentioned earlier, Mahendra Singh Dhoni earned himself a place in Indian cricket history due to his leadership in the World Cup where he was named Man of the Match in the final against Sri Lanka. He is already considered as one of the best test captains in the history of the Indian side and although his perfect record was wiped off by the white wash in the test series against England, it would be unwise to question his abilities.Mahendra Singh Dhoni has all the makings of a great captain like Steve Waugh and Allan Border and if he can keep his side winning, there is no doubt that he will reach the same heights as the other great captains of the modern game. .....

The Childhood Years
2. Mahendra Singh Dhoni had always been a bit of a sportsman right from the time when he used to be in the 5th standard at DAV Shyamali in Ranchi and truth be told, he has acknowledged that his parents always encouraged him to participate in sporting endeavors, without putting undue pressure on him regarding the rat race of education. That is something you can notice in the way Dhoni conducts himself on the cricket field. He is a fierce competitor no doubt but he treats the game as a game without letting it affect him personally and that is the reason why you would never see him shouting animatedly at his bowlers or fielders when things go awry. His father Pan Singh was employed at the junior levels at MECON and hence there wasnt an abundance of money in the family but they were not desperately poor either. .....
Turning Point
3. Dhoni was never interested in cricket when he was a child but he was someone who excelled in badminton and football, in which he played as a goalkeeper. Cricket was a game that he used to play once in a while in his locality but badminton and football were the games in which he represented his school as well as his district. However, it all changed one fine day when he was asked to play for a local club as a wicket keeper since their regular keeper was indisposed. Now, since Dhoni was a goalkeeper in football, he had the basic agility that was required to become a good keeper and so it was in this game he first announced himself as a wicket keeper of rare ability.

From then on, he went from strength to strength as a cricketer but there was no apparent breakthrough other than the fact that he was getting selected regularly in grade cricket. However, Dhoni realized that he needed a job in order to sustain his family and so it was in the year 2000 that he was took up the job of a train ticket examiner or TTE in the Indian Railways. For those who might have traveled in Eastern railway might have encountered Dhoni as a TTE during those years between 2000 and 2003. This was however the best decision that he could have taken since as an employee of the Indian Railways he was able to play cricket for a strong domestic cricket side and truth be told, it was his stint with the Railways that really thrust him into the limelight.It was in 2004 that he was eventually selected for India and the rest as we all know would surely be a part of modern Indian history. .....

Playing style

Parthiv Patel, Ajay Ratra and Dinesh Karthik also followed this route.Dhoni tends to play mostly from the back foot with a pronounced bottom hand grip. He has a very high bat speed through the ball which often results in the ball racing across the ground. From this initial stance his feet do not show much movement which sometimes results in chasing balls while not coming to the pitch of the ball or some deliveries catching the inside edge. .....

Bihar U19 cricket team advanced to the finals of the 1999 2000 Cooch Behar Trophy where Dhoni made 84 to help Bihar post a total of 357.

Jharkhand cricket team

In the 200304 season, Dhoni scored a century (128) against Assam in the first match of the Ranji ODI tournament. He was part of the East Zone squad that won the Deodhar Trophy that year and contributed with 244 runs in 4 matches.

He scored a fighting halfcentury in the second innings in a losing cause.Dhonis talent was discovered via the BCCIs smalltown talentspotting initiative TRDW.

Test career
14. Following his good oneday performance against Sri Lanka, Dhoni replaced Dinesh Karthik in December 2005 as the Indian Test wicketkeeper.Dhoni scored 30 runs in his debut match that was marred by rain. Dhoni came to the crease when the team was struggling at 1095 and as wickets kept falling around him, he played an aggressive innings and was the last man dismissed.Dhoni made his maiden halfcentury in the second Test and his quick scoring rate (half century came off 51 balls) aided India to set a target of 436 and the Sri Lankans were bowled out for 247.India toured Pakistan in January February 2006 and Dhoni scored his maiden century in the second Test at Faisalabad. India were left in a tight spot as Dhoni was joined by Irfan Pathan with the team still 107 away from avoiding a followon. Dhoni played his typical aggressive innings as he brought up his maiden Test hundred in just 93 balls after scoring the first fifty in just 34 deliveries.Dhoni at fielding practiceDhoni followed the century up with some prosaic batting performances over the next three matches, one against Pakistan that India lost and two against England that had India holding a 1 0 lead. Dhoni was the top scorer in Indias first innings in the third Test at Wankhede Stadium as his 64 aided India post a respectable 279 in reply to Englands 400. However Dhoni and the Indian fielders dropped catches and missed many dismissal chances including a key stumping opportunity of Andrew Flintoff (14).Dhoni failed to collect the Harbhajan Singh delivery cleanly as Flintoff went on to make 36 more runs as England set a target of 313 for the home team, a target that India were never in the reckoning. A batting collapse saw the team being dismissed for 100 and Dhoni scored just 5 runs and faced criticism for his wicketkeeping lapses as well as his shot selections. .....
Captain of India
15. Dhoni was named the captain of Indian squad for the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 held in South Africa in September 2007. India were crowned champions as Dhoni led the team to victory against Pakistan in a thrilling contest.He, then, went on to become the ODI captain of the Indian team for the sevenmatch ODI series against Australia in September 2007. He made his debut as fulltime Test captain of India during the fourth and final Test against Australia at Nagpur in November 2008 replacing Anil Kumble who was injured in the third test and who then announced his retirement. Dhoni was vicecaptain in this series up to that point.India eventually won that Test thus clinching the series 2 0 and retained the BorderGavaskar Trophy.Dhoni had previously captained India on a standin basis against South Africa and Australia in 2008 and 2009 respectively.

It was under his captaincy that India climbed to No. 1 in the ICC Test Rankings in December 2009. After that he managed to lead India in a seriesleveling world championship of Tests against the South Africans in February 2010. India also managed to draw the Test series 11 in South Africa later that year.After winning the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup final against Sri Lanka on 2 April 2011 with his match winning knock of unbeaten 91, Tendulkar heaped praises on Dhoni, claiming him to be the best captain he has played under. Tendulkar mentioned that it was Dhonis calm influence that was rubbing off on all his teammates and described Dhonis handling of pressure was incredible.Only nine players have captained ten or more Tests playing as a wicketkeeper. Dhoni leads the table with 33 Tests as captain, 15 ahead of Gerry Alexander in second place.In March 2013, Dhoni became the most successful Indian Test captain when he eclipsed Sourav Gangulys record of 21 victories from 49 Tests. Ganguly also said in an interview to a news channel that Dhoni is the alltime greatest captain of India and he has a great record to support this credential. .....

Match bans
16. Dhoni, being captain of the Indian cricket team, has seldom faced any restrictions not to play in matches, due to slowover rate. In December 2009, he was suspended for two ODI matches against Sri Lanka when ICC match referee Jeff Crowe imposed the ban as India was three overs short of the specified overs. Hence Virender Sehwag was named the skipper for the two matches in Cuttack and Kolkata.Further, in January 2012 he was banned for the fourth Test match against Australia in Adelaide. Dhonis team was two overs short during the third Test in Perth. Consequently, Sehwag captained the team in the Adelaide test and Wriddhiman Saha kept the wickets. In the CB Series in February, Dhoni again faced a one match ban for slowover rate against Australia. .....
World Cup
17. Under Dhonis captaincy, India won the 2011 World Cup. In the final against Sri Lanka, chasing 275, Dhoni promoted himself up the batting order, coming before Yuvraj Singh. When he came to bat India needed more than six runs per over with three top order batsmen already dismissed. He started building a good partnership with Gautam Gambhir. Due to good strokeplay and active running between wickets, they kept up with the required run rate. Dhoni was on 60 off 60 balls, but later accelerated with a greater flow of boundaries, ending with 91 not out off 79 balls. Befitting the occasion, he finished the match of in style with a huge six over longon off bowler Nuwan Kulasekara and won Man of the Match. Later in the post match presentation, he admitted that he came up the order so as to counter the Muralitharan spin threat as he was very familiar with Muralis bowling, who was his teammate in the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings. He had come after the dismissal of Virat Kohli, also a righthanded batsman. By partnering the lefthanded Gambhir, he ensured a rightleft combination at the crease that makes it difficult for bowlers to settle into a rhythm.The bat used by Dhoni in the final match was sold for INR 72 Lac. The money goes to Sakshi Rawat Foundation, operated by Dhonis wife Sakshi Rawat to help orphan children. .....

ODI career
20. The Indian ODI team in the early 2000s saw Rahul Dravid as the wicketkeeper to ensure that the wicketkeeper spot didnt lack in batting talent. The team also saw the entry of wicketkeeperbatsmen from the junior ranks with talents like Parthiv Patel and Dinesh Karthik (both India U19 captains) named in the Test squads. With Dhoni making a mark in the India A squad, he was picked in the ODI squad for the Bangladesh tour in 200405.Dhoni did not have a great start to his ODI career, getting run out for a duck on debut.In spite of an average series against Bangladesh, Dhoni was picked for the Pakistan ODI series.In the second match of the series, Dhoni, in his fifth oneday international, scored 148 in Vishakapatnam off only 123 deliveries. Dhonis 148 surpassed the earlier record for the highest score by an Indian wicketkeeper,a record that he would rewrite before the end of the year.

Dhoni had few batting opportunities in the first two games of the Sri Lankan bilateral ODI series (October November 2005) and was promoted to No. 3 in the third ODI at Sawai Mansingh Stadium (Jaipur). Sri Lanka had set India a target of 299 after a Kumar Sangakkara century and, in reply, India lost Tendulkar early. Dhoni was promoted to accelerate the scoring and ended the game with an unbeaten 183 off 145 balls, winning the game for India. The innings was described in Wisden Almanack (2006) as Uninhibited, yet anything but crude. The innings set various records including the highest individual score in ODI cricket in the second innings, a record that still stands.
