India captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has now completed 50 Test matches as captain of Team India.

 

Dhoni has been the most successful captain of India, winning the ICC World Twenty20 in 2007, leading the Test team to the No 1 spot, winning the ICC World Cup in 2011 and also the ICC Champions Trophy earlier this year. As a Test captain, Dhoni has seen both the good and bad days. From captaining the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and co., Dhoni now has the responsibility of leading a young Test team against South Africa in a two-match Test series, starting from Wednesday.

 

MS Dhoni has been at the helm of the transition of Indian Test cricket, wherein the likes of Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli are taking over the responsibilities and filling the void created by the departure of Tendulkar, Dravid and VVS Laxman.

 

Following is the comparison chart of India’s most successful Test captains:
