Dhoni ended Team India’s hunt to find a long-term wicketkeeper and became the first-choice keeper-batsman. In 2007, he led Men in Blue to a victory in the inaugural edition of T20 World Cup in South Africa. He was also named as India’s full-time ODI captain in September 2007. Next year, he replaced Anil Kumble as Test captain.
One man, many emotions!
But it's only ♥️ for Thala during his birthday week!
