Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the former captain of Indian Cricket Team is one among the many cricketers who might be retiring at the end of the 2019 World Cup. M S Dhoni has been in visionary form this season and he would look to continue it till the World Cup.

Opinions are divided over Mahendra SIngh Dhoni’s ability as the greatest captain in the history of the Indian Cricket Team. While he remains the only international captain who have won all the three ICC tournaments (in addition to ranking No 1 in the Test Match rankings), he has also been at the receiving end of long trace of overseas defeats. It cannot be doubted, however, that nobody has served as captain, wicket-keeper, and batsman over such long period of time in the history of the cricket.

With an average strike-rate of over 50 and close to 90, M S Dhoni is an undisputed champion of the cricket format. In his classical form, M S Dhoni’s greatest claim to fame is certainly the brutal 224 against Australia at Chepauk in  year 2012-13.
