M.S. Dhoni is undoubtedly one of the best captains the Indian team has had the opportunity to play in the guidance of. Under Dhoni's leadership, India won both the 2007 T20 Cup and the 2011 50-over World Cup.

Under Dravid's captaincy, the Indian team was severely criticized for leaving the league round without even advancing to the next round of the 2007 50-Over World Cup. Back then, the Dravid-led team had great players like Sachin, Sehwag and Ganguly, but the Indian team could not win.

Following this, everyone thought that they would appoint players like Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh as the new captain to replace Dravid from the post of captain of the Indian team. However, the Indian team was assigned Dhoni as the new captain, and he won the T20 World Cup in the same year.

Prior to this, when Greg Chappell was the coach of the Indian team, there were controversies within the team. Despite accumulating successive victories, there were sensational reports that there were recurring problems within the team. Dravid - Chappell split into groups on one side and other Indian players on the other side.

It was only after this that the Indian team missed the 50-over World Cup and then Dhoni was appointed as the new captain of the Indian team. Meanwhile, former India captain Yuvraj Singh has made a sensational comment.

“I was supposed to be the captain. Then the Greg Chappell incident happened. It had become Chappell or Sachin. I was probably the only player who supported…that I support my teammate. And there were a lot of people in the…Some of the BCCI officials did not like that. It was said that they should make anybody the captain but not myself. This is what I heard,” Yuvraj said in an interview.

“I am not sure how true it is. Suddenly from vice-captaincy I was removed. Sehwag was not there in the team. So, out of nowhere, Mahi (MS Dhoni) became captain for the 2007 T20 World Cup. I thought I was going to be the captain," he added.

The 8th Behindwoods Gold Medals Awards will be held this year on May 15 and 22 at the Island Ground in Chennai Island from 6pm to 11.30pm. Ticket booking for this is currently underway.
