We wish him a very ‘Happy Birthday’ and pray for his success in his life. The man who led India in 49 Tests and 147 ODIs has a vast history behind.

Under his captaincy, India has won an ICC tournament and were the runner-up of 2003 World Cup.

He was an aggressive captain who took his decision very bluntly. He is one of those who discovered the young talents in the early 2000s and founded a modern era Indian cricket team. Players like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra etc. turned into world class cricketers under his captaincy.
