    Ok, but did Dhoni really deserve to take over the ODI captaincy from Rahul Dravid back in 2007?

    It was Rahul Dravid, who decided to leave the captaincy after tremendous loss from the 2007 World Cup, making the Indian team broken into pieces and the Indian fan burst into anger. That time, what was required was young blood with the creative power to lead the team into the next level and MS -Dhoni who got the opportunity proved to be true. That time, T-20 was becoming the popular tournament and Dhoni made his team to perform their best and play free with passion, which proved them to be Inaugural T-20 World Cup 2007 Champions and India got a new rising captain for future. Rest all, was the golden history!
