He has been responsible for leading the team well and making the team win several tournaments like the 2011 ICC World Cup, 2007 ICC World Twenty20, and many more. He is also a great batsman and an amazing wicketkeeper. After his retirement, many fans have got their heartbroken. Many are even finding someone as his replacement. But, who? There are many more players in the squad who are brilliant, but can take his position?

KL Rahul, the Indian opening batsman, and wicketkeeper is often compared to him. He is great with both batting and wicketkeeping skills, like MS Dhoni. In fact, he is a great captain too. He has captained the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) well. He is also strategic like him.
2: Rishabh Pant
The emerging player, Rishabh Pant, is also a great wicketkeeper-batsman, who has nailed in the international matches. He has got huge recognition in his debut year. Being coached under ‘The Wall’ – Rahul Dravid, Rishabh has built himself well. Many consider him as his replacement.
3: Sanju Samson
Although Sanju Samson has been seen only in a few international matches, he has played a huge role in the domestic cricket tournaments. He made his debut in 2015 officially. But in 2014 he was taken in the 17-man squad for One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20, as a backup for MS Dhoni.
