#2 Only player to lead a team in 6 WT20s

Dhoni has led India in six World T20s so far

The 2007 World T20 held at South Africa was the first tournament MS Dhoni captained and he emerged successful too. Though he couldn’t repeat the feat again, he remained the captain for India in next 5 WT20 editions.

India lost to Sri Lanka in the 2014 finals, which was the closest since then. In the 2016 edition, they were knocked out in semis after the West Indies chased down a mammoth 192-run total.

There is no other player who had captained more than thrice in WT20. One needs to be a captain for at least 10-12 years to break this record and thus making it a difficult record to be broken. It's tougher than it looks as a player needs to maintain his form and fitness which only a few players have been able to do in the pasts.

As MS Dhoni had stepped down from captaincy in 2017, the 2020 WT20 edition will see Kohli taking charge which is set to take place in Australia.
