Born on 7th July 1981, MS Dhoni is a professional cricketer from India. He is a wicketkeeper and a right-handed batter by trade. MS Dhoni has already retired from all forms of international cricket and currently, plays for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. Hailing from Jharkhand, Mahendra Singh Dhoni played Ranji cricket for the Railways.
After impressing on the A tour to Kenya, then-skipper Sourav Ganguly identified his talent and asked the selectors to pick him for the ODI series against Bangladesh in November 2004. However, his debut didn’t go as planned as he was dismissed for a duck in his very first game. Meanwhile, the skipper Sourav Ganguly decided to give the youngster a long run. MSD soon repaid his faith in the 5th ODI against Pakistan with an explosive and shot-filled knock of 148 at Vishakhapatnam. In 2005, MS Dhoni cemented his place in the Indian team with a brutal unbeaten 183 runs against Sri Lanka to complete a chase of 300+ runs.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni made his Test debut against Sri Lanka in December 2005 and his T20I debut came against South Africa in December 2006. With Rahul Dravid stepping down from the captaincy in 2007, Sachin Tendulkar recommended his name as the next Indian captain and the rest is history.
On his very first assignment as a skipper in the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007, India shocked the world with the title victory. He soon was handed over the ODI captaincy and the Test captaincy in 2008 after Anil Kumble’s retirement. From there, MS Dhoni grew into India’s most successful skipper as Men in Blue also won the 2011 ODI World Cup and the 2013 Champions Trophy under his leadership.
During his playing career, MS Dhoni earned millions of fans worldwide and arguably, he is the most popular cricketer on the planet after Sachin Tendulkar. 15 August 2020, the former India skipper announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket. However, he still is the captain of the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL.
The love story of Chennai Super Kings and MS Dhoni is a match made in heaven as ‘the Thala’ has been with the franchise from its very first season. He had spent two years with Rising Pune Supergiants when the CSK was banned but he returned to the franchise once it was reinstated. The bonafide legend of Indian cricket is likely to retire from the IPL after the 2023 season with the Yellow Army.
