Then the victory in the ODI World Cup came after 28 years in 2011 and two years later, India became winners in the Champions Trophy. In 2009, under him, India also topped the Test rankings for the first time. And of course, he led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to five IPL trophies. Thala’s captaincy has been praised by many from the entire cricket fraternity.
