Profile

MS Dhoni is India’s inspirational captain, hard-hitting batsman and wicketkeeper. 

Through his four-year reign he has taken the side to the top of the Test ratings, won the 2011 World Cup, and lifted the prize at the first World Twenty20. 

Beating Australia at home would add further lustre to an already shining leadership record. 

As a batsman he has learned to pace his innings, but is often brutal and is feared when he walks out after India’s big guns have disappeared. Australia have mostly managed to control his batting and his average against them is significantly lower than his overall mean. 

His best Test score facing the Australians came with 92 in Mohali in 2008, while he managed his only ODI hundred against them when posting 124 at Nagpur in 2009.
