Here are the top 5 reasons why India loves MS Dhoni

Indian cricketer MS Dhoni holds a unique record of leading the team which has won all the ICC trophies.

He led Team India to victory in World T20 2007 when most of the senior players had taken aback after the poor show in ICC ODI World Cup.

He fulfilled the dream of Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar to lift the ODI World Cup in 2011.

With a young brigade under his leadership, he also won the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 hosted by England.

India attained the number 1 spot in ICC Test rankings for the first time under Dhoni’s captaincy in December 2009.

5) Captain Cool

MS Dhoni rarely shows his emotions on the field. Looking solely at his expressions, an uninformed observer would be hard pressed to determine the situation of the match.

May it be finishing the match with a six in ICC ODI World Cup 2011 or running out Bangladeshi batsman Mustafizur Rahman in World T20 2016, Dhoni kept his calm and lead his team towards the victory which looked shaky at a moment both for the team players and the Indian fans.
