Captaincy Of Dhoni
If we talk about the captaincy of Dhoni, then he has seen a lot as a captain. His captaincy can be seen in two parts. The first part from 2007 to 2014 in which he has achieved huge success. The second part of Dhoni, i.e., from 2015 to 2021, went through a difficult phase of captaincy.
When Dhoni took over the captaincy of Team India for the first time in 2007, he won the trophy by winning against Pakistan. Since then, Dhoni started living in the heart of every cricket lover. India also won the ODI World Cup in 2011 under the captaincy of Dhoni. Apart from this, Team India also managed to win the Champions Trophy in 2013 under the captaincy of Dhoni.
If we talk about IPL, then Chennai Super Kings won the 2010 and 2011 trophies under Dhoni’s captaincy. It was Dhoni’s first part as a captain. During this, he got his team many trophies and became famous as Cool Captain, Magic Captain.
The second part of Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni started with the 2015 ODI World Cup. Here the team had to face defeat in the semi-finals. In the same year, the team CSK faced defeat in the IPL final. After that, Dhoni’s fans were shocked when CSK was suspended from IPL in 2016 and 2017. However, during this time, Dhoni took over the captaincy of Pune and took his team to the final. But there, Mumbai Indians won that year’s trophy.

During that time, Dhoni had left the captaincy of Team India. But Dhoni, while leading CSK’s team in 2018, tasted victory again and remembered his golden days. The next year, i.e., in 2019, CSK once again reached the final of the IPL but could not win the title. 2020 was when CSK was out of the playoffs for the first time under Dhoni’s captaincy. But it is said that only those who win after losing are called jugglers. In IPL 2021, Dhoni managed to win his team by making a spectacular comeback as a captain. In this way, Dhoni got the distinction of taking the IPL Trophy 2021. Mahendra Singh Dhoni became the first player in the world to captain a match in 300 T20Is.
