India’s captain MS Dhoni has taken his side to the top without a great bowling attack, which makes his achievement more remarkable. A captain moreover, will be showered with praise by the media, be regarded as some modern day gladiator in whites when the matches are won; and dissected, humiliated, and blamed with such rancor at the losses you’d think he was the biggest mistake BCCI ever made. Captaining India is one the perfect examples of a double-edged sword. “Talking to media at his residence on his 41st birthday, Ganguly said: “Dhoni has a phenomenal record (of winning all the world titles). If I were to pick a side, he would definitely captain an all-time great Indian XI because of his batting ability as a wicketkeeper.”   Hat-trick Number 1: Dhoni is the only man in the world to take his team to victory in the top 3 limited over tournaments of the world: The ODI World Cup, the T20 World Cup and the ICC Champions Trophy. Hat-trick Number 2: Dhoni is the only captain in the world to have ever taken his team to the ICC No. 1 rankings (from a lower rank and not merely inherited it) in all three forms of the game: Tests, ODIs and T20s. Hat-trick Number 3: Dhoni is the only man in the world to be captain in all three forms of the game for more than 4 years at a stretch now.
