Dhoni has represented India in 350 ODIs with his highest score being 183 against Sri Lanka. He is the only Indian captain to win all the major ICC trophies( 50 over World Cup, T20 World Cup, and Champions Trophy).
Over the years he has cemented himself as one of the best wicketkeeper-batsman around the world.
His agility behind the stumps has given India many breakthroughs as the Ranchi based wicket-keeper has done the most number of stumping in International Cricket.
In December 2014, he announced his retirement from Test after playing 90 Tests and scoring 4,876 runs at an average of 38.09.
The 39-year-old is currently enjoying some time away from the game. He last played competitive cricket during the 2019 World Cup.
