The wonder boy from Ranchi has changed the face of Indian cricket in the past several years. Dhoni’s wonderful batting & impeccable leadership qualities make him one of the most successful captains in the world.
However, Dhoni’s World Cup campaign ended in a pretty much similar fashion as his ODI debut. Against Bangladesh in 2004-05, Dhoni was run out in his very first ODI innings. Similarly, a direct hit by Martin Guptill in the semi-final ended Dhoni’s World Cup journey.
India has lost their 5th knockout match in the previous ICC Global events and their journey is over in the mega event. New Zealand are through to their 2nd consecutive ICC World Cup final.
