As a shocking start to the New Year, skipper of Indian cricket team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has stepped down as the captain of the Indian Cricket team, in the One Day Internationals and T20 Internationals.
The captain can very well be known as the most successful captain of the Indian cricket team. Out of 199 ODIs, the team won 110 matches, losing 74, 11 no-results and 4 ties and India had also reached the top of the Test rankings in the year 2009. He led team India to be the champions at the ICC World Cup in 2011 after a long gap of almost 30 years.
The 35-year-old former captain of the Indian team informed the BCCI of his decision on Wednesday evening. However, he will be available for the selections for the ODI and T20I series against England. He had earlier quit Test captaincy in the year 2014 in the middle of the Australia tour.
MS Dhoni will be remembered for his personal achievements in the field of cricket as well as for taking the Indian team to newer heights under his able leadership.
