January 4: In what came as startling news the Captain Cool, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has decided to step down as the captain of the team. However he will continue to stay in the game & is available for selection.

We are awaiting more details on this.

Cricketing World Pundits speculate it is to give the team & next Captain some time to prepare for the Next World Cup which is due in 2 years to come.

Dhoni has chosen to continue as the part of team, it would help him focus on his game and keep playing for longer. He has large number of endorsements which would also like him to play for a while.

M S Dhoni has been one of the most successful Indian Captains. He has won India a T20 World, and a ODI World cup among other victories like Champions Trophy & taking India to Top Test ranking.

Indian team will miss his Cool head behind the wicket, but it is a relief to fans that he will be on field to guide the future Captain, which probably is going to be Virat Kohli. Fans would want Kohli, the presumed default Captain in all forms to gain some patience and calmness from his predecessor.
