Dhoni stepped down as T20I captain in January 2017. Dhoni, who led India to victory in the 2007 World T20 in South Africa, was captain in 72 T20Is, of which India won 41 and lost 28 (1 Tied, 2 No results). Dhoni has led CSK in 213 matches, won 130 and lost 81. He also led the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant in 14 matches, winning five and losing nine.
Dhoni also holds the record for most matches as T20I captain. England skipper Eoin Morgan is second on the list.
