Ricky Ponting and MS Dhoni-- both skippers have established themselves as one of the most successful leaders of the game. While Dhoni led India to title wins in ICC T20 World Cup, ICC Champions Trophy 2013 and World Cup 2010, Ponting won two back-to-back World Cups for his side in 2003 and 2007.

Dhoni’s winning percentage as ODI captain is 59.52 while Ponting finished his career with the winning percentage of 76.14.

 

Former Aussie legend Michael Hussey, who has played for the Australian national side under Ponting and for Chennai Super Kings under Dhoni, was recently asked to pick his favourite captain among the two.

Speaking to ESPNCricinfo, the former left-handed batsman said it was a tough call, but he finally chose Ponting over Dhoni.

“It’s a tough one, well, I will have to say, Ricky. I never played in ODIs with MS Dhoni, so I will go with Ricky,” Hussey said in an interview with ESPNCricinfo.

Under Dhoni’s leadership, Hussey won two IPL titles with Chennai Super Kings and the left-hander currently works as the batting coach of the IPL franchise.
