T20 World Cup, Commonwealth Bank Series, World Cup, Champions Trophy and what not. Known for his utter patience and unique batting style, Captain cool has customised the game in his own ways. In 2014 at his home ground, Dhoni hammered the Australian bowlers en route to his majestic double century. He surpassed Sachin Tendulkar’s score of highest individual runs in an innings as a captain. Dhoni has always been famous for scoring runs consistently with the tale enders. India were 406-8 when Bhuvneshwar Kumar walked in the middle. India had to get a lead of of at least 200 runs, in order to fetch a positive result. Dhoni played quite intelligently stealing singles on the very last ball of every over, in order to get the strike. The duo added 150 runs on the board, giving India a satisfactory lead. After a staggering knock of 224, Dhoni became only the 3rd highest run getter in an innings in the tally of wicket keepers.
