The moment Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India's very own Captain Cool hit the winning six in World Cup 2011, everyone knew it was a historic event, which has earned a golden place in the history on Indian cricket. With that, MS Dhoni also earned himself the title of being one of the best captains of Indian men's cricket team.
Here are some of the most memorable moments of Mahi which made all of us fall in love with him-
ICC T20 World Cup, 2007
All of it began during the first T20 World Cup. MS Dhoni scores a blistering 36 runs in just 18 balls against Australia in the Semi-Final of the T20 World Cup in 2007.
Commonwealth Bank Series, 2008
The one thing which makes Dhoni captain cool is, for him, his team comes first. When India won the CB series 2008 against Australia, Dhoni asked the other team members to collect the trophy. Dhoni knows that teamwork is the key to success.
World Cup, 2011
When India won the ICC 2011 ODI World Cup, many Indian fans sang the National Song 'Vande matharam' at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai soon before MS Dhoni hit that six and won the World Cup Trophy and the hearts of billions of Indians.
Dhoni’s famous helicopter shot
The helicopter shot, which necessitates perfect timing and wrist moment, is among the most difficult shots in cricket. Dhoni, who invented this hit, used it frequently throughout cricket games. The helicopter shot is known as the signature shot of our captain cool.
The only Indian captain to win all ICC trophies
Mahendra Singh Dhoni has accomplished a lot for the Indian Cricket Team, including leading India to the top of Test Cricket and winning a T20 and ODI World Cup. India has won three ICC awards under his direction in addition to the test match trophy. In 2013, Dhoni became the only Indian captain to win all ICC trophies leading the team to Champions Trophy victory that year.
