And why not, he has given the Indian cricket fraternity, a lot to cherish about throughout the years. He has been one of the most successful captain on the international circuit.
It is also his calm and composed demeanour which makes him one of the standout players on the international circuit, besides his decision taking skills.

Yadav was instrumental in the T20 World Cup for India, in which they finished as runners-up, after being thrashed by Australia in the final. She picked up 12 wickets in the marquee tournament with her best performance coming against Australia in the group stage match, where she returned figures of 4/19.
MS Dhoni contribution for India
MS Dhoni has taken some unusual decision to save India from the jaws of defeat a lot of times. The 2007 World Cup final over by Joginder Sharma. Promoting himself above the player-of-the-tournament Yuvraj Singh in the 2011 World Cup final. The crucial 18th over by Ishant Sharma in the 2013 Champions Trophy final.
MS Dhoni stepped down from limited-overs captaincy in 2017. Yet he remained the go-to man for a lot of senior players from the national team due to his ability to read the game and guide the bowlers accordingly from behind the stumps.
But after contributing for the Indian cricket team from the fore, at the age of 38, when his game had clearly lost the touch – MS Dhoni took a timely call for himself – after India’s exit from the World Cup 2019.
