Mahendra Singh Dhoni took the cricketing world by surprise again as he stepped down as captain of India's limited overs captain.

The 35-year-old batsman and wicketkeeper, who lead India to the no.1 position in cricket has announced his retirement from his role as captain of the Indian limited overs (ODI and T20) side. He had retired from Tests during the away tour in Australia in Dec 2014. His records are : Led India in 60 Tests from that 27 wins, 15 draws, 18 losses., While from 199 ODIs 110 wins and 74 losses and from 73 T20Is 41 wins and 28 losses.

Virat Kohli deserved to be the captain. He has succeeded in moulding the players to respond to his outlook. His aggressive approach and delivery paid such rich dividends in Tests that Indian cricket must strive to protect it for as long as possible. 


I think Virat Kohli has that capability to drive the team India from the front and he is in the pick form. Undoubtedly, Dhoni has given so much for our team India but because of the rotational method I think the decision is absolutely right one.
