Relive MS Dhoni’s iconic career in 57 seconds on his 43rd birthday – watch | Cricket News

MS Dhoni, the only international captain to have won every ICC trophy, celebrates his 43rd birthday today.
It’s been almost four years since Dhoni bid adieu to international cricket on August 15, 2020. While he had left the Test scene in December 2014, Dhoni continued to play white-ball formats for India for almost six years after that. Going back to the start of his career, in the Lahore ODI during India’s 2006 tour of Pakistan, wicketkeeper-batsman Dhoni had scored 72 not out off 46 balls to bag the ‘Player of the Match’ award.At the presentation ceremony, late Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf had famously said: “May I congratulate Dhoni on being the architect of the victory. May I tell Dhoni, I saw a placard asking you to get a haircut. If you want to take my opinion, you look good in this haircut. Don’t get a haircut,” he said.
From that series onwards, Dhoni never looked back in his career, going on to become one of India’s most iconic captains, who led the team to T20 World Cup glory in 2007, the ODI World Cup triumph in 2011, the ICC Champions Trophy title in 2013 and also playing a key role in making India No. 1 in Test cricket under his captaincy.

He continues to play the IPL for Chennai Super Kings (CSK), having led them to five titles, as fans hope that their ‘Thala’ has one more season left in him before he bids farewell to cricket.
To commemorate his achievements and career on his birthday, CSK published a 57-second video capsule that encompasses most of the big moments of Dhoni’s decorated career.

Dhoni played 90 Tests, before quitting red-ball cricket in 2014. He scored 4876 runs in Tests at an average of 38.09, including 7 hundreds and 33 fifties, with a highest of 224.
He played 350 ODIs and 98 T20I, scoring 10,773 runs in 50-over internationals at an average of 50.58, including 73 fifties and 10 centuries. In T20Is, he finished with 1617 runs at an average of 37.6, including two half-centuries.
