Bangalore, July 16: Celkon Mobile Cup is the latest addition to MS Dhoni's ever-growing cabinet of trophies. The India captain has won every tournament and there is seems to be nothing left for him to chase, in terms of silverware in the limited overs version.

Since becoming the skipper in 2007 - for ICC World Twenty20, Dhoni has led Team India to 6 ODI tournament titles, 1 T20 and 11 bilateral series successes.

What trophies has captain MS Dhoni won?

With results going in his favour and a good bunch of players in the squad, Dhoni is being rated as the greatest Indian captain.

Former skipper Sourav Ganguly has also praised the wicketkeeper-batsman saying he is one of the greatest of all-time in ODIs.

"As far as one-day cricket is concerned, Dhoni is one of the greatest captains of all times in India," Ganguly said.

Another former cricketer, VVS Laxman said India was lucky to Dhoni as captain.

"India is lucky to have a captain like him. He does get involved emotionally, that's his quality. His uniqueness lies in his ability to respond to a tough situation with ease," said Laxman, who played under Dhoni.

The debate to decide who is the best Indian captain in ODIs and Tests might not find an easy answer. However, at the moment Dhoni is certainly leading the race.

The 32-year-old last month became the first captain in history to win all three ICC titles (World T20, World Cup and Champions Trophy). He has won almost everything including the Indian Premier League (twice) and Champions League (once) with Chennai Super Kings.

One would now wonder what is left for him to conquer?

Another World Cup in 2015 could be his final target.
