Era of Dhoni captaincy in Indian cricket comes to an end

Photos: Era of Dhoni captaincy in Indian cricket comes to an end

Mahendra Singh Dhoni stumped every cricket fan on Wednesday when he informed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that he is stepping down as the skipper of India's One-Day International (ODI) and T20 International sides. The 35-year-old had already retired from Test cricket in December 2014 but continued to lead the Men-in-Blue in the shorter formats of the game. Dhoni, who had led India to the International Cricket Council (ICC) World T20 title in 2007, to the World Cup victory in 2011 and lifted the Champions Trophy in 2013 also took India to the zenith of the Test rankings during his tenure. The Ranchi wicketkeeper-batsman will, however, be available for selection for the three ODIs and T20Is against England, starting January 15, the BCCI informed.
