With the ICC Cricket World Cup and Champions Trophy victories to his name, MS Dhoni is undisputedly the most successful Indian ODI captain till date. The Men in Blue became a better limited-overs side under Dhoni’s captaincy and they will look to get even better under the current captain, Virat Kohli. Talking about Kohli, he has the joint-second-most wins after first 38 ODI matches as captain (30).
