India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a very flamboyant approach towards the game. Fearless of taking bold decisions, this stylish player has done nation proud right from the time he was appointed Team India captain in the year 2007.

Under his captaincy India has won ICC World Twenty20 2007, CB Series 2007-08 and the Border-Gavaskar Trophy '08. He led the team for their first ever bilateral ODI series wins in Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

Dhoni has been a recipient of ICC ODI Player of the Year award in 2008 (the first Indian player to achieve this feat), the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award and the Padma Shri - India's fourth highest civilian honour in 2009.

Currently, Dhoni is the highest ranked ODI batsmen on the ICC Rankings List. He has also been named as skipper of Wisden's first-ever Dream Test XI Team in 2009 and has topped the list of world's top 10 earning cricketers compiled by Forbes.
