MS Dhoni Biography

Under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India won the 2007 ICC World Twenty20, the 2007-08 CB Series, the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2008 and 2010 against Australia and the 2011 World Cup. His Test and ODI captaincy records are the best among all the Indian captains to date. MS Dhoni also led Chennai Super Kings to victory in both the 2010 and 2011 editions of the IPL and in the Champions League held at South Africa in 2010. Currently the captain of India in all three forms of the game, Dhoni has also led the team to its first ever bilateral ODI series wins in Sri Lanka and New Zealand. Under Dhoni's captaincy, India became the first team after a gap of more than 20 years to whitewash Australia in a Test series. Dhoni also led the Indian team to the number one position in ICC rankings in Test and one-day cricket for the first time. Dhoni has been the recipient of many awards including the ICC ODI Player of the Year award in 2008 and 2009 (the first Indian player to achieve this feat), and was also named as captain of the ICC World XI five times in a row. He was bestowed with the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award and the Padma Shri, India's fourth highest civilian honour, in 2009. That same year, MS Dhoni topped the list of the world’s top 10 earning cricketers compiled by Forbes, and he was ranked as the 31st richest sportsman in the world according to the Forbes Highest Paid Athletes list for the year 2012.
