Former Indian cricketer MS Dhoni is hailed as one of the most successful skippers to have played international cricket. He is the only captain in the history of the game to lead a side to title victories in all three ICC events. He took the Indian cricket team to the number one position, under his captaincy for nearly a decade.

Dhoni played a crucial role in grooming players including the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and a few others as he backed them when they needed the support of the captain.
