Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the only captain in the world of cricket to win all three ICC trophies. A right-handed middle-order batsman and wicket-keeper, Dhoni is one of the highest run-scorers in One Day Internationals with more than 10,000 runs scored and is considered an effective “finisher” in limited-overs formats. He is also regarded by some as one of the best wicket-keepers and captain in modern limited-overs international cricket. Under Dhoni’s captaincy, the Indian team witnessed some major wins and he was termed as a successful captain.
On the contrary, we have Ricky Ponting the most successful captain in international cricket history, with 220 matches won overall from 324 matches with a winning ratio of 67.91%. Ponting was captain of the Australian national team during its ‘golden era’; between 2004 and 2011 in Tests and 2002 and 2011 in ODIs. He was named Cricketer of the Decade 2000. He captained Australia in 2003 and 2007 world cup and emerged victorious in both. An excellent batsman, fielder and successful captain is none other than Ricky Ponting.
Both these skippers have made a remarkable contribution to their respective teams and were extremely successful captains. Please pick the most successful captain amongst them as we are unable to pick one.
