On the domestic level, Dhoni plays first-class cricket for Jharkhand.In the late 90s and during Greg Chappell’s coaching era, when heads were tumbling through the Indian team’s turmoil, it seems all that Mahendra Singh Dhoni did was chalk out a plan on how things would change for the better.

Dhoni’s next adventures were probably his toughest as a skipper. Consecutive tours to England and Australia in 2011/12 were complete disasters as the team was whitewashed both times. Success in Tests continued to evade Dhoni even as he relished the shorter formats. A home series loss to England the following year put question marks on

Dhoni’s leadership in the longest format of the game but he did have his way in 2013 when he inflicted on a touring Australian team, a 4-0 whitewash, making him the first captain in a long time to do so. That was followed by winning the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 making him the only skipper to hold all the major ICC trophies – the T20 WC, the 50-over WC, and the Champions Trophy.

Dhoni debuted for the senior Bihar Ranji Team for the 1999–2000 season. He was also included in the Bihar U-19 squad for the 1998–99 season where he scored 176 runs in 7 innings from 5 matches. Dhoni however was not picked for the East Zone U-19 squad (CK Nayudu Trophy) or the Rest of the India squad (MA Chidambaram Trophy and Vinoo Mankad Trophy). Dhoni made a first-class debut in Ranji Trophy debut for Bihar in the 1999–2000 season. He was just eighteen-year-old at that moment.

After playing Ranji Trophy for over three years, Dhoni was picked over by international cricketer Deep Dasgupta to represent East Zone. It was then that Dhoni stepped into the limelight. Dhoni was scouted by BCCI’s small-town talent-spotting initiative TRDW and discovered by TRDO Prakash Poddar. Dhoni was selected for India A squad for a tour of Zimbabwe and Kenya. His performances in that tour earned him the attention of the likes of Sourav Ganguly and Ravi Shastri.

MS Dhoni IPL Career

Dhoni’s services were contracted by the Chennai Super Kings for US$1.5 million in IPL’s inaugural season in 2008. He was the most expensive player in the IPL for the first season auctions. Dhoni captained Chennai Super Kings to victory in 2010 and 2011 and 2018 Indian Premier League titles and the 2010 and 2014 Champions League T20 titles.

After the CSK was banned for two years, Dhoni was subsequently bought by Rising Pune Supergiant for US$1.9 Million in 2016. He was the captain that year but after his team finished in 7th place he was replaced by Steven Smith.

MS Dhoni’s CSK reached the final for a record 8th time in 2019 but was stopped by a resurgent Mumbai Indians side which won the final by a whisker.

International Career Of MS Dhoni

MS Dhoni ODI Career

Dhoni arrived on the international stage when the Indian ODI team was struggling to find its Wicketkeeper-Batsman. We saw Rahul Dravid in the 2000s and then the arrival of wicket-keeper/batsman from the junior ranks such as Parthiv Patel and Dinesh Karthik. But they didn’t fit the team combination well. Then came Dhoni, who was picked for the ODI squad for the Bangladesh tour in 2004/05. Also Read – ICC Cricket Rankings 2021: Test, ODI & T20 Rating (Updated)

Dhoni had the most disastrous start to a career which anyone can ever ask for. Getting run out for a duck on debut is the last thing you want. But, despite ordinary performances in his inaugural series against the Bangladesh cricket team, Dhoni was selected for the series against Pakistan. Dhoni scored his first century in his fifth one-day international. He scored 148 in Visakhapatnam off only 123 deliveries. And thus began the Dhoni era.

His last ODI inning came against New Zealand in the 2019 WC Semifinal where he ended his ODI journey in the same way he started–with a runout. Although there were speculations that MSD will stage a comeback after the 2020 IPL, the unforeseeable circumstances due to COVID-19 ensured that MS Dhoni played his last international game without any farewell.

Dhoni replaced Dinesh Karthik in December 2005 and was the last man standing in his 30 run journey in his debut test innings. Dhoni went on to score his maiden half-century in the second Test. He was very aggressive with it too, as the half-century came off 51 balls. We witnessed the Dhoni in making who was soon going to lead India to the number 1 spot in Tests.
