New Delhi, Jan 5: In a shocking incident early today, the Indian cricket team captain for ODI and T20 formats, Mahendra Singh Dhoni stepped his foot down from captainship, informed BCCI officials. Dhoni who has played 283 ODIs and 73 T20s in the international cricket had already retired from test cricket early in 2014 on Dec 30 during an on going series in Australia.
Being the one captain to play minimum 50 matches in all 3 formats, Dhoni holds a world record. Said to be one of the most successful captain of India, Dhoni’s followers broke down early today after hearing his resignation from captainship. One of his most iconic moment, was in 2007 when Dhoni hit a massive six to end the 28 year wait for the ODI world cup.
Though he will be available for ODI and T20 selection further ahead, fans and followers of him still do feel sad of his sudden resignation. There is a bigger chance of him being selected in the England tour to be played in India starting from 15th this month, said sources.
