The Indian cricket team has had several great players leading the squad. From CK Nayudu to Vijay Hazare, from Mansour Ali Khan Pataudi to Sunil Gavaskar. From Kapil Dev to Ravi Shastri, from Sachin Tendulkar to Virat Kohli, So many players have led India. But one player rises above all to be India’s most successful captain, MS Dhoni. Essentially Sports brings you 10 instances which show that he was truly the best captain India ever had.
10. Persisting with young talents like Virat Kohli, Murali Vijay and Rohit Sharma even after their initial failures .
In India’s tour of Aus 2011, Virat Kohli was short of runs and the talks were going on about dropping him, but Dhoni persisted with him and he struck 2 fifties in the Perth test and finally scored a century at Adelaide which changed his career and today he is the mainstay of the batting line up. Murali vijay has now gained the reputation of a flamboyant opener who lays a great price on his wicket. And I’m sure none of us have forgotten those 2 double centuries scored by Rohit Sharma.
