#Indian #Cricket star #Dhoni’s five notable innings

Indian cricket superstar M.S. Dhoni has called time on his illustrious international career, which included success in every format and two limited-overs World Cups as captain.

The 39-year-old played 90 Tests, 350 one-day internationals and 98 Twenty20s for India since his debut in 2004.

AFP takes a look at five notable Dhoni innings:

  1. Early impression: Visakhapatnam, 2005
  2. Rise of the Ranchi star: Jaipur, 2005
  3. Mumbai, 2011

With India chasing Sri Lanka’s 275 on home soil in the ODI World Cup final, Dhoni — who had earned the nickname “Captain Cool” — soaked in the pressure to hit an unbeaten 91.

He whacked Nuwan Kulasekara for six to win the final in Mumbai, triggering wild celebrations in cricket-mad India whose fans had waited 28 years for an ODI World Cup.

The innings, and the final shot over the fence, cemented Dhoni’s status as one of India’s greatest ever cricketers.
