Asia Cup 2018: MS Dhoni Creates History, Leads India For 200th Time

Written by Vipin Darwade

MS Dhoni is captaining the Indian cricket team for the 200th time in ODIs during the Asia Cup 2018 match against Afghanistan in Dubai on Tuesday. India decided to rest skipper Rohit Sharma for the match as they have already qualified for the summit clash of the competition.

He is the third international captain after Ricky Ponting (Australia) and Stephen Fleming (New Zealand) to captain any national side for 200 matches. For India, the second spot belongs to Mohammad Azharuddin who captained the India side for 174 matches.

Dhoni has won 110 out of the 199 matches as skipper with 74 losses, 4 ties and 11 matches ending in no result.
Dhoni’s final match as India skipper was way back in October 29, 2016 when India defeated New Zealand by 190 runs in Visakhapatnam.
