Dhoni, who made his international debut in December 2004 against Bangladesh, went on to play 90 Tests, 350 ODIs, and 98 T20Is. Under his captaincy, India also climbed to the top of Test rankings and won the Test mace. He led CSK to four IPL titles, only second to Mumbai Indians (MI) in the lucrative T20 league. During his international and IPL playing days, Dhoni has always been known for his calmness and exquisite captaincy on the field. Over the years, he has cemented his place as one of the finest wicket-keepers across the world.
In December 2014, he had announced his retirement from Tests. He called time on his Test career after playing 90 Tests, in which he scored 4,876 runs at an average of 38.09. Then in 2017, he had handed over the captaincy to Virat Kohli in the white-ball formats.
