Inspirational captain, talented batsman and skilled wicketkeeper. There have been no shortage of accolades for MS Dhoni since he made his international debut in 2004.

Dhoni announced himself in only his fifth one-day international appearance in 2005 when he blasted his way to 148 off 123 balls and his ODI high-score of 183 not out came later the same year.

He was arguably India’s most successful captain with a record that includes leading his side to victory in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, taking India to the top of the Test rankings for 18 months from December 2009 and winning the ICC World Twenty20 in 2007.

Dhoni made 64 ODI fiftes to go along with his 10 centuries and an average of above 51.

While his Test career wasn't as prolific as his one-day career, it is still extremely prosperous. He made six centuries and 33 fifties with a high-score of 224.
