Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the leading start batsman, wicket-keeper and captain of Indian Cricket Team has captured another award this year. He is the only Indian player who has been awarded with "ICC ODI Player of the Year". The batsman is really happy at this occasion and says that he is fully motivated to deliver best moments in cricket. He said that he feels extremely happy that he has got his name in one of the best players of the world and he has made the whole India proud of him. Dhoni has not only won the award but he has proved himself in a competition where players like Muhammad Yusuf (Pakistan), Sachin Tendulkar (India) and Nathan Bracken (Australia"s fast bowler). The overall playing history of Dhoni is infested with great achievements and he is an all-time favorite entertainer when in the ground. As a matter of fact, Dhoni is having 1st rank among the list of ODI batsmen as per ICC rankings. He is thankful to all who supported him to become such a brilliant player. Dhoni is an aggressive right-handed batsman and wicket keeper. All the trophy"s which a CAPTAIN can give his team like WORLD CUP, CHAMPIONS TROPHY, T-20 CUP , IPL , CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, TRI SERIES, Dhoni has succeeded in winning them. Whenever his team wins, he always gives the credit to his team players saying that it"s all because of my team mates. And whenever his team loses he takes the blame on his shoulders. Also in all situations he always reacted calmly and handled the situation very smoothly, and he also known by CAPTAIN COOL.He made his Ranji Trophy debut for Bihar in 1999-2000 seasons as an 18 year old. He receives his 1st man of the match award against Pakistan for scoring 148 runs on 5th April 2005. He also became man of the match against Sri Lanka on 31st of October 2005 for scoring his highest ever unbeaten 183 runs at Sawai Mansingh Stadium. On 13thFebruary 2006, Dhoni became man of the match against Pakistan. On 19th of April 2006, he moves to the top at no.1 position on LG"s ICC ODI player ranking.

He became the 1st captain to lead India to the ICC World twenty 20 trophy played in South Africa in Sept.2007 which India won. He was the second Indian captain after Kapil Dev who won the world cup.He also won the ICC ODI player of the year award in year 2008 and also in 2009, 1st Indian player to win this award consecutively. He was also awarded the 4th highest Indian civilian honour the Padma Shri in the year 2009. Under his captaincy India climbed to no.1 in the ICC Test rankings in Dec.2009. Under Dhoni"s captaincy India won the 2011 world cup in the final against Sri Lanka. When he came to bat India needed more than 6 runs per over with three top batsmen already dismissed. He was awarded with Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award. In the time span of 20 years the Indian cricket team whitewashed Australia in test series and due to this India was in no.1 position in ICC ranking in test cricket under his captaincy. He became the 1st Indian to hit 10 sixes in ODI.

All his contributions as a captain are remarkable and under his captaincy India got all the titles. India should feel proud to have such an example for the future captains to encourage. And no doubt in saying "DHONI IS THE BEST CAPTAIN EVER".

Dhoni is best , I agreed but you have too best in all the form then only one is best . His average in test cricket is only 39.70 . He is good but not best . There is aesthetic era for everybody. He is in good phase of his career.
Team is not make with one player and according to me Ganguly is the best captain ,he boost the confidence at worst time of India cricket team . His overwhelming will to win every mach was stupendous . He was playing for victory . He always strive for the betterment of Indian cricket . He is best in every form. He can't able to won the prestigious cup but he started the good era for the Indian cricket team . There was no constraint among the players at that time but the things has changed as you would see now.
Best captain doesn't mean that he has score 10 centuries .He is different from other player that why he is getting the name captain. He used to look for each and every player in the field . He has good relationship with his team mates then only one is best.
According to me Dhoni can fulfill only certain things and he is lagging in many.

Brother, What you said was right, "He is different from other player that why he is getting the name captain.". You can see a specialty in Dhoni that he is a Cool Captain in the cricket team, isn't it? You said that the best CAPTAIN doesn't mean that he has score 10 centuries. I was not talking about the Captain but the best player in the INDIAN CRICKET TEAM. Do you know why I didn't say that Sachin is the best player even though Sachin has many records than MS Dhoni? Dhoni is a player who comes to change the game, he brings positive result. Once I saw a tweet in twitter that a Pakistani cricket lover says that even though he is a Pakistani he likes MS Dhoni, which shows that he is better than a player in Pakistan team.

My dearest friend I know Dhoni is a good player but see the difference at the quality of player in that time and today's time.Previously,there was a class of player I can able to remember many like Hayden,Gilchrist,Lara,Bond,Yousuf and many others but today there is only power hitting and no quality has left so you can't compare the player from this time to that time.You can't say that Dhoni is best. You cant compare the bowling of Faulkner with McGrath or Warne with Doherty.Am I right my bro.

Now , my friend I will tell you that no one is best in this world .There is comparison with one things and another.So someone is good in something and the other is good in another. One always has to strive for becoming better than others. Like Dhoni is best in power hitting and Sachin is best in timing the shots . So a person has numerous amount of quality but he is not best in all others, he may be good in others.No one is perfect. So you cannot say , he is best or worst.
