All records are made to be broken, but MS Dhoni, who used to be captain of India, is not one of those people. Some of his records haven’t been broken yet, and others won’t be for a very long time in international cricket.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who used to lead India, quit international cricket on August 15. MS Dhoni’s journey is one of the most inspiring and motivating stories of a small-town boy who became a legend in cricket.
Here are the Six MS Dhoni records that will not be broken for a very long time:
1. Winning All 3 ICC Trophies:
During his time as captain, MS Dhoni won all three ICC Trophies: The World T20 in 2007, the One Day World Cup in 2011, and the Champions Trophy in 2013. This is something that no other Indian captain in the history of cricket has ever done. This is the one that makes the most sense. Dhoni is the only captain who has won all three ICC trophies so far. Even though he was a new captain, he did a great job leading a young team as Team India won the first T20 World Cup in South Africa in 2007, beating Pakistan in a close final. This was the tournament where Dhoni’s now-famous calmness as captain stood out.
Four years later, even though he hadn’t been hitting well, he came through when it counted. Dhoni’s unbeaten 91 from 79 balls in the 2011 World Cup final against Sri Lanka helped India beat a hard target of 275 and win the coveted title for the first time in 28 years. Then, in 2013, Dhoni made history as India’s captain when he led his team to victory in the ICC Champions Trophy in England. In the final, India beat the hosts in a close game with few runs. Dhoni became the first captain to win all three ICC titles.
2. Captain in six T20 World Cups:
Another record that will probably never be broken. Dhoni has been India’s captain in every T20 World Cup since 2007, though he hasn’t had as much success in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016. India lost the 2014 final to Sri Lanka and the 2016 semifinals to the West Indies. As captaincies don’t last as long as they used to, and as too much cricket shortens careers, it seems like it would be hard for any player to lead his team in as many T20 World Cups as Dhoni has.
3. Most international matches as captain:
Split captaincy wasn’t popular when Dhoni took over as India’s captain in 2007. After the T20 World Cup in 2007 and the Indian Premier League (IPL) that followed, the shortest version of the game took off. And within a few years, the need for different captains for different formats became a reality. At the moment, most teams use a formula called “split captaincy.” This is exactly why Dhoni’s record of 332 international matches as captain seems almost impossible to beat.
4. Most stumping’s in international cricket:
Even without his great hitting, Dhoni’s lightning-fast glove work has won him a lot of fans. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that in 538 international games, he has stumped an amazing 195 players. Next on the list is Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka, who has 139. Even if a really good wicket-keeper comes along, it will be hard for him to play in all three formats. So, Dhoni’s record of stumping seems pretty safe, too.
5. Most not outs in ODIs:
It would be an understatement to say that Dhoni is a master finisher in one-day games. He loved keeping the game going until the very end, which put a lot of pressure on the bowler. Because of this unique strategy, he has not been out 84 times out of 350 one-day games. Since T20Is are more popular than ODIs these days, this record doesn’t seem to be in danger either. Chaminda Vaas and Shaun Pollock are tied for second place on the list, each with 72 not outs.
6. Winning the World Cup with a six:
This is the stuff that makes dreams come true. To win the World Cup with a six is the best way to show how well you can time things. In 2011, Dhoni set up the fairy-tale ending against Sri Lanka in Mumbai. A second performance is not impossible, but it is very unlikely.
