During his lengthy and spectacular cricket career, MS Dhoni has had remarkable success as a captain. The experienced wicketkeeper-batsman has guided India to the ICC World Cup, ICC T20 World Cup, and ICC Champions Trophy championships, among other achievements. He has also led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to three Indian Premier League (IPL) championships and two Champions League T20 wins. These accolades speak eloquently about Dhoni’s standing as one of the best modern-day captains. According to India head coach Ravi Shastri, whose tenure would expire after the next T20 World Cup, “there is no one near to” Dhoni in terms of white-ball captaincy.
“(Dhoni is) the best white-ball captain in history. Take a peek at his ICC tournament record. I mean, what hasn’t he won? IPLs, Champions Leagues, all ICC events, and two World Cups are all available. So when it comes to white-ball cricket, he has no competition “Shastri stated this during a conversation with FanCode.
“He needs to be the greatest — King Kong, if you will. Because when you see Dhoni captaining a team, when you see the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on the field, there’s that assurance, that tranquilly that everything are under control “Shastri said.

“Even if the opposing side is whacking sixes and fours, you get the sense that there is serenity, tranquilly, and control.”
Dhoni, who is presently captaining CSK in the UAE leg of the IPL 2021, will join Team India as a mentor for the T20 World Cup, which will be contested in Oman and the UAE from October 17 to November 14.
