M.S. Dhoni- The most unconventional Captain India ever had.

An era came to an end on 10th January 2017, for all the cricket lovers, when one of the most unconventional Captains of the World Cricket has played his last match as a Captain, Yes I am talking about our own Mahi aka Mahendra Singh Dhoni!

Mahendra Singh Dhoni was always a mystery for his opponents, he is often termed as the Captain cool, but deep inside he is one of the most aggressive, competitive, and smart Captain.

But apart from his extraordinary captaincy, Dhoni is one the most destructive batsman and best finisher of the cricket world.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni as a player is always over shadowed by Mahendra Singh Dhoni as a captain.

Let’s have look on some of his records which we bet is not known to many:

  1. Highest Batting Average by Indian Player: Until Dhoni came to the team, it was believed that Indian Wicket keepers will be playing a supporting role in batting, though Rahul Dravid has broken this myth for a while, but we can’t be termed as full-time wicket Keeper. Mahendra Singh Dhoni has the highest batting average for any Indian player who has played more than 50 ODI matches. Dhoni’s batting average is 52.24, till date, it is the highest in India and 4th highest in International cricket.
  2. The only captain to score a century on no. 7th position in ODI: Dhoni has always proved that he is one of the most unconventional and brave batsman we have, he has played in all position from 1st to 7th and proved his metal everywhere.Till date, he is the only captain in cricket history who came to bat on no. 7th position and hit a century, and most important he did this against our arch rival Pakistan.
  3. Highest Stumping’s: As per experts, Dhoni is not regarded as the ideal wicket keeper if we talk about technicalities, but still Dhoni holds a record for highest no. of stumpings in One Day cricket, he is the first wicket keeper in international cricket to surpass 150 stumpings. Dhoni has done all this with his quick presence and with all his unconventional keeping techniques.
  4. Most no. of Sixes: One cannot mention Dhoni, without talking about his helicopter shot and all his homogenous sixes, Dhoni is the first captain in international cricket to hit 50 sixes in test cricket.
  5. Only Captain to win all three ICC trophies: It’s a dream for any captain to lift ICC trophy, and Dhoni has lived this dream thrice in his career, Dhoni is the only captain who has won all three ICC trophies (ICC Champions trophy, ICC World Cup, and ICC T20 World Cup). He took charge as a Captain,  after 2007 Indian World Cup debacle when Rahul Dravid left the captaincy and Sachin Tendulkar has suggested Dhoni’s name for Captaincy. Sachin is God of cricket for a reason and he identified the potential in Dhoni within no time. However, it wasn’t easy for Dhoni, as he had to lead almost a new team and manage in a completely new cricket format T20. But, hats off to perseverance and extraordinary leadership skills that he drove his team to success and made India proud by lifting the T20 trophy.
  6. Taking difficult decisions with ease: Dhoni was fortunate enough to play with Fantastic Five (Sachin, Sehwag, Dravid, Laxman, Ganguly) these are the greatest players that Indian cricket ever had, but as we say with great power comes greater responsibility, and Dhoni has fulfilled all his responsibilities with great decision making skill. One of the biggest challenge for Dhoni in his initial days was to deal with great criketers and make them aware about new age cricket without hurting their self-esteem. In fact, he had a unique way of expressing his feelings, for instance, the way he gave Captaincy to Saurav Ganguly in his last over in his farewell match. And, remember the time he gave a guard of honor to Sachin Tendulkar? Of course, you do. There is a reason why it’s regarded as one of the most emotional moment of the cricket history

A lot of us have debated, if he could ever be loved as much as Sachin Tendulkar or will he ever be regarded as the most terrific batsman like Virat Kohli.

But, he never has to be a Sachin or Virat because being Dhoni matters.

He is India’s face of new age cricket and one of the most innovative and unconventional Captain of cricketing history.
