It has been observed that every now and then whenever Team India register a victory, one of the records is either improved or a new record is achieved. In this sequence, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has overtaken the record of former skipper Sourav Ganguly on Friday as the most successful Indian captain in terms of ODI victories achieved on foreign shores. 

In an interesting encounter, the four-wicket win over the West Indies by MS Dhoni led Team India today in the ICC World Cup 2015 happens to be Dhoni’s 59th while Ganguly could achieve only 58 victories under his belt. 

It is important to highlight that our captain played a key role with an unbeaten timely 45-run knock, which helped his side to a hard-fought win at the WACA. His worthwhile contribution is also clearly visible by the fact that under his leadership, India had won the 2007 World T20 and the 2011 World Cup at home, besides the Champions Trophy in England two years ago. 

Most importantly, he was also a key figure when India achieved the number one Test rankings. We hope he can lead us to another world cup win.
