BCCI unanimously nominates MS Dhoni for Padma Bhushan award

Indian Cricket Team’s most successful skipper, MS Dhoni on Wednesday stepped down as the captain of India’s ODI and T20 international cricket teams.

However, Dhoni will be available for the selection for the upcoming England ODI and T20I series starting January 15, tweeted BCCI.

The BCCI’s senior selection committee will meet on Friday to announce the Indian cricket team for the three-match One-Day Internationals (ODI) and the subsequent three T20 Internationals.

The wicketkeeper and batsman made his ODI debut against Bangladesh in 2004. Dhoni is the only Indian captain to have led his team to victory in all three major ICC tournaments including the Twenty-20 World Cup (2007), 50 Over World Cup (2011) and the Champion’s Trophy (2013).

He also led his victorious team Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (2010 and 2011) and Champions League Twenty20 (2010 and 2014).

Dhoni led India to 27 test victories and a whopping 163 one-day victories.

His win percentage is also unparalleled 45 percent in tests and 61 percent in one-day internationals.

In 2007, it was Sachin Tendulkar who recommended MS Dhoni’s name for India’s skipper.

Dhoni was conferred with the honorary rank of Lt Colonel by the Indian Territorial Army in November 2011.
