A tribute which tells all successes of Dhoni

The voice of cricket, Harsha Bhogle, with a special message

Many memories, many emotions. But typical of a man who never hogged the limelight; even as captain of a World Cup winning team.

Harsha counts Dhoni’s achievements

World T20, World Cup, Champions Trophy, Test No 1, IPL titles, Champions League titles. Everything in the game. #Dhoni

Dhoni, 35, had earlier suddenly quit Test captaincy during the Australia tour in 2014 in Melbourne. Dhoni has been India’s most successful captain. India also won ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 and reached top of the Test rankings in 2009 under him. Test skipper Virat Kohli is likely to take over captaincy of the limited overs team following Dhoni’s decision.
