The former India captain’s M.S. Dhoni only international wicket Travis Dowlin

When you recall the best Indian captain who has achieved it all, you remember only one name, MS Dhoni. He had won it all for India with his exceptional leadership skills. In 2007 he was handed over the captaincy of a young and inexperienced squad in the first-ever T20 World Cup which was held in South Africa.

But he accepted the challenge and announced himself that he was ready for the responsibility to lead the team to newer heights. After that he leads the team in number 1 test ranking in 2009, then came the biggest moment of his life, winning the World Cup in 2011 with his important innings in the final of 91 off just 79 deliveries.

Then he again displayed his captaincy in the champions trophy held in England and Wales in 2013 where India defeated the home team England in the final.

He has not only displayed his captaincy skills in international cricket but also lead his IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings to victory thrice. His batting form has been tremendous and he will always be remembered as one of the best finishers for India.

Dhoni- the bowler:

Now here’s the twist, it’s very unlikely that we see wicketkeeper-batsman bowling and after that even having an international wicket to his name. Dhoni has that milestone to his name.

He dismissed Travis Dowlin of West Indies in the champions trophy of 2009 and got his first international wicket. He also dismissed Kevin Pietersen in 2011 and Mahela Jayawardene in 2013 but both the decisions were overturned due to the DRS used by the batsman.

Wickets in list A too:

In totality, Dhoni has 3 wickets in professional cricket one in international and 2 in the List A format. Dhoni never got a wicket in his first-class career because he never really bowled much on that level.
