The skipper's journey from when he began his career for the Men in Blue under the wings of Captain Cool MS Dhoni to becoming a successful skipper of the Indian team has been groundbreaking and spectacular. With consistency in skill and performance, the Indian skipper is easily one of the most respected cricketers in the world and he is after breaking records, those being held by legends of the game for a very long time.
