MSD has taken a right decision at the right time

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, nicknamed Mr Cool, has been one of India’s best cricket captains. Under his captaincy, Team India won the T20 World Cup, ODI World Cup and became World No 1 in ICC rankings. After quitting Test cricket earlier, Dhoni has now taken a right decision at the right time to quit captaincy of T20 and ODI teams after the England series. A new leadership is emerging in the ranks of Team India with Virat Kohli as the Test team captain. Virat has performed par excellence, there is a huge surge of aspirations among the players, and Team India has won the England series with the help of fresh, new players. So, Virat Kohli seems to be the natural claimant for T20 and ODI captaincy. It would not be correct to predict now that Dhoni may retire from cricket altogether, because he still has much of cricket left in him. A great wicketkeeper and batsman, Dhoni can still be useful for Team India.
