Dhoni contribution to the Indian team has been immense. He has led the Indian team to three major ICC titles which include World Cup T20 in 2007, 50 overs World Cup in 2011 and the Champions Trophy in 2013.

Dhoni has been a great finisher of the game and to have an average of over 50 while batting lower down the order is an unbelievable achievement. He has his own technique when it comes to both batting and keeping wickets.

He does not follow the orthodox methods but he is highly effective and has been successful in his own mantras. His biggest quality has been his cricketing mind, to keep calm under crunch situations, to think out of the box, field placements, taking the match deep when he is batting, when to attack and when to defend has been his greatest prowess.

Most often than not he has delivered the goods for the team and has been a great contributor to the Indian team. His achievements go to show us that hard work does pay off, all you need to do is back yourself and have self-believe.

Dhoni has a great cricketing mind and his ability to judge a match situation is unmatched and then to execute his plan to perfection has been commendable. His contributions to Indian Cricket has been massive and we all should be proud of the work he has done for the Indian team.
