Mr Rahul Johri, Chief Executive Officer of the BCCI said, "On the behalf of every Indian cricket fan and the BCCI, I would like to thank MS Dhoni for his outstanding contribution as the captain of the Indian team across all formats. Under his leadership, Indian team has touched new heights and his achievements will remain etched forever in the annals of Indian cricket."

 Dhoni made his debut in 2004, He then became the captain of T20 side and was his strategy that fetched the T20 world cup .Dhoni then succeeded Rahul Dravid as one day captain and then captained India in tests after Anil Kumble.
