Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Mahendra Singh Dhoni or MS Dhoni is one of the best finishers in the game of cricket and one of the best captains for the Indian national team. Dhoni took over the ODI captaincy from Rahul Dravid in 2007 after debuting in 2004. He holds multiple captaincy records such as most wins for an Indian captain in Tests and ODIs, and most back-to-back wins by an Indian captain in ODIs. His biggest triumphs as captain have been the 2007 World T20, 2010 Asia Cup, 2011 World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy. His heroic inning of 91 from 79 balls in the 2011 World Cup is one of his biggest highlights as a batsman and one which rose him to fame for his ability to stay cool under pressure thus earning him the moniker of \'Captain Cool\'. In the IPL, he\'s led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to titles in 2010 and 2011. Dhoni retired from Test cricket in late 2014 to hand Virat Kohli the baton. He is known for his love for motorcycles and away from cricket, co-owns the Indian Super League (ISL) side Chennaiyin FC. In 2016, a movie was made on his life called \"MS Dhoni: The Untold Story\" in a perfect adaption of someone who has lived a rags-to-riches tale from being a TTE in 2001.
