History beckons MS Dhoni in CT 13 final

Birmingham, June 22: History beckons India captain MS Dhoni on Sunday (June 23) as he takes the field in the Champions Trophy 2013 final against England here at Edgbaston.

Dhoni is on the verge of becoming the first skipper in the history of the game to win all three ICC global titles.

The wicketkeeper-batsman can achieve this rare feat by leading India to title in the final edition of Champions Trophy on Sunday. This is his last chance as there will not be another round of Champions Trophy.

Dhoni has already won ICC's other two major global events - ICC World Twenty20 Championship in 2007 and ICC World Cup in 2011. He now stands a chance to make it a triple treat and a world record.

Apart from these international sliverware, Dhoni has led Chennai Super Kings to Indian Premier League (IPL) trophies twice (2010 and 2011) and also Champions League Twenty20 (2010).

No limited overs international captain has ever led his country to all three ICC titles. Australia's Ricky Ponting has tasted double success by captaining his side to both ICC World Cups and Champions Trophy wins but World T20 eluded him during his career.

The 31-year-old Dhoni has been one of India's finest captains. And on Sunday, he can claim another record by beating England at Edgbaston.

MS Dhoni's Previous ICC Trophies

2007 - ICC World Twenty20 Championship in South Africa

2011 - ICC World Cup in India
