In a surprise move, MS Dhoni has stepped down as ODI and T20I captain thereby drawing curtains to his glorious leadership career.
The 35-year-old Dhoni under whom India had won two World Cups and a Champions Trophy title, stunned the cricket fraternity by relinquishing the captaincy barely 11 days before the ODI series against England.
Dhoni’s decision has now paved the way for Test captain Virat Kohli to take over the mantle of the limited overs team as well.
In his unfinished limited overs career, Dhoni has so far scored 9110 runs in 283 ODIs at an average of 50.89 with 183 not out being his highest score.
Besides, the wicket-keeper batsman has so far made 1112 runs from 73 T20 Internationals.
Dhoni has been India’s most successful captain. Under his leadership India have won the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007, the ICC ODI World Cup in 2011, ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 and also reached the top of the Test rankings in 2009.
