Cricketing Fraternity takes to Twitter as we look at some of the wonderful wishes to the captain cool, MS Dhoni on his 38th birthday.
Thala, Captain Cool, Ice Man, and the heart-throb of our generation has entered the 39th year of his life, and the entire cricketing fraternity can’t keep calm. Wishes poured in from cricketers across the globe, who have either played with him, under him or his well-wishers.
His image of a long-haired, hard-hitting wicket-keeper batsman, who debuted 15 years back is still in my mind. Since then, he has transformed himself into the best captain, the best finisher, and the best wicket-keeper of this generation.
A plain look at his statistics would give us jitters as the man has smashed innumerable records since his debut.
MS Dhoni’s Career In Numbers:
ODIs: 10723 runs from 296 innings at an average of 50.6 with 443 dismissals
TESTs: 4876 runs from 144 innings at an average of 38.09 with 294 dismissals.
T20s: 6621 runs from 283 innings at an average of 39.88 with 253 dismissals.
Some Interesting Stats:
- The only Captain to have won all the three ICC trophies- T20I World Cup, ODI World Cup, and Champions Trophy.
- Most stumpings in ODIs- 123.
- The fastest player to reach the number 1 ranking in ODIs- 42 Innings.
- Highest score by a wicket-keeper- 183*(145) by MS Dhoni against Sri Lanka in 2005.
- Most runs batting at number 6- 4164 from 29 innings at an average of 47.31.
With MS Dhoni turning 38, here’s how cricketing fraternity wished him all on his birthday on Twitter.

First played together in Bangladesh in 2004 & shortly saw him announce his arrival against Pak at Vizag when he scored 148, hasn’t looked back since and the legend of MS Dhoni has only grown by the year.

Also, from all members of our AK4Tsay1 Cricalytics family, we wish MS Dhoni, the legend a Happiest birthday.
