Genius, marvelous, ethereal and scintillating are some words that can be used, but will always be insufficient to describe the stature of the former Indian skipper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The journey from being an ordinary ticket collector in a small town of Kharagpur to the most successful Indian captain has been nothing short of extraordinary for him.

Arguably the most popular Indian cricketer across the globe, Dhoni drew the attention bars to himself when he blasted two centuries in a triangular 50-over tournament for India A in Nairobi in 2004. Long-haired and fearless, he soon swaggered into international cricket, and became an instant darling of the crowds with ODI innings of 148 and 183 within a year of his debut. But before he can enjoy the stardom of an Indian cricketer he was handed a responsibility of leading a young Indian side in the 2007 T-20 World Cup. Nobody expected India to win and making Dhoni the captain was a mere formality by the board, who themselves knew that fate of the team. But what they didn't knew was the turnaround that was coming for Indian cricket which was in turmoil after the first round exit from the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2007. Dhoni's India won the World cup. More than the Victory it was the belief that was important which he filled in the team that they can perform and win against the best in any conditions. Since then he took Indian cricket to new height demolishing every record as a batsmen and as a captain.

Then came 2011, the cricketing carnival was about to start, the expectation and the hopes of becoming the 50 over World Champions for the second time were on the new heights. India looked like faltering in the last steps, losing the top order cheaply in the final, but the world saw a great man, a great captain and a great player yet again stepping up to the occasion, scoring an invaluable 91 to make dream come true for the 100 millions fans.

However post the World Cup glory, Dhoni's leadership in the whites was severely criticized after 8 successive losses against England and Australia, which was accentuated by a 2-1 home series loss to England in 2012-13, the first time India had lost at home in more than eight years.

Dhoni's graph as a captain in the longest format was going down but he was still the boss in the shorter formats.

Dhoni led India to the Champions Trophy triumph in 2013, followed by their first ever triangular series win in West Indies.

Away from home in the winter of 2013-14, India lost Test series in South Africa and New Zealand by 1-0 margins that did not reflect how close they came close to wins on both tours. The England tour of 2014 began promisingly, with a drawn first Test followed by a historic win at Lord's, but India crashed to earth immediately afterwards to lose the series 3-1.

Dhoni ended his career in whites with a proud record for a wicketkeeper, with 4876 runs at an average of just over 38, and six hundreds. He had also captained India to more Test wins - 27 - than anyone else. Dhoni, later handed the ODI captaincy to Virat Kohli in 2017.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not the captain anymore nor he is the player he used to be  but he still is an invaluable asset to the Indian Cricket Team.
