Lucknow: Remember the year 2007, the first twenty-20 world cup finals between India and Pakistan in South Africa, when the Indian counterpart needed just six runs to win the world-cup? The stadium packed with cricket lovers, the cheers, the excitement, the nervousness and amidst all of them a cool and calm face on the ground encouraging all his team members that there is still a ball left and they can take wicket to win this game.

Every Indian had lost hope, but there was a person who did not lose his trust on his team members including the least fancied Joginder Sharma who was given the last over. Remember Misbah-ul-haq miscuing the shot and the shout of Dhoni 'We won’ even before the catch was taken.

This was the time the world knew that this team had the potential to win any tournament. The new team India with the energy of youth and the experience of seniors, led by the young vibrant, aggressive yet calm, the Captain Cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

In the second match of the series, Dhoni, in his fifth one-day international, scored 148 in Vishakhapatnam off only 123 deliveries. Dhoni surpassed the earlier record for the highest score by an Indian wicket-keeper, a record that he would re-write before the end of the year.

He made his debut as full-time Test captain of India during the fourth and final Test against Australia at Nagpur in November 2008 replacing Anil Kumble who was injured in the third test and who then announced his retirement.
