Profile

He announced his arrival into the international arena in 2004-05 with a bang. MS Dhoni has come a long way with his swashbuckling and aggressive brand of cricket. He is a destroyer of bowling attacks and often a great finisher. If he is spectacular with the bat, he is secure with the keeping gloves. Dhoni's batting consists of shots and strokes which are anything but orthodox and conventional. His playing style reinforces that one should look at the ball and not the bowler.

Born in Ranchi, 'Mahi' displayed tremendous potential of a great leader after he led india to victory in the inaugral ICC World Twenty20 in 2007. The icing on the cake was the triangular series win against Australia in Australia in 2008. The Indian wicketkeeper has modelled his game on Adam Gilchrist and his extraordinary knock of 183 runs helped him break his idol's record for the highest score by a wicketkeeper in ODI's.

To a large extent Dhoni has been helped by the services of Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir and Zaheer Khan. But his ability to bring out the best in youngsters, speaks volumes for his cool demeanour. He started off as an attacking cricketer who loved to dispatch the ball towards the fence. In many ways, he was India's answer to a stable wicketkeeper/batsman, and he did not disappoint.

But captaincy seems to have brought out a new sense of maturity in him as he has changed his gameplay as much as he changed looks with his long, wild hair being replaced by the short crop. He now plays the role of sheet anchor that holds one end of the fort while the other batsmen make sure the ball finds the fence often.

His maturity as a solid batsman was witnessed when India were 82-8 against West Indies. Dhoni and RP Singh put on a 101 run stand as the skipper shielded his tailender and made sure runs came from the other end.

Another characteristic of Dhoni is that he always seems unfazed by what is happening around him. He is India's 'man with a plan'.

Ever since he won the inaugral World Twenty20, in his first assignment as skipper, he has been earmarked as India's golden-boy and the country expects him to take India to the pinnacle of world cricket in all three formats of the game. Not impossible, considering he has brought the country within foreseeable distance of that target.
