Former Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni celebrated his 39th birthday on July 7. Till last year Dhoni was a regular feature on the Indian One-Day International cricket team. However, since the conclusion of the 2019 Cricket World Cup rumours of Dhoni's retirement have been floating.
Under Dhoni's captainship, India managed to win the 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 ODI World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy. He is the only captain in the world to have successfully led his team in winning all three major ICC tournaments.
"Happy b'day Mahi Bhai. Wish you good health and happiness always. God bless you," skipper Virat Kohli tweeted. Kohli had replaced Dhoni as the captain of the Indian ODI team back in 2017.
