Question in detail
Shocking but true, MS Dhoni quits ODI and T20 captaincy on 4, January, 2017! Mahendra Singh Dhoni left the entire cricketing fraternity in shock on Wednesday by calling it a day as limited-over captain across all formats, though he will be available for selection for the remainder of England's tour of India which now includes three ODIs and three T20s. Exhibiting outstanding captaincy skills, winning almost everything a cricketer dreams of and taking Indian cricket to all new heights, Dhoni stroke a chord of every Indian during his 10-year of tenure as Indian skipper. However, the actual reason why Dhoni quits captaincy still remains a secret.
Irrespective of whatever the reason might be, the news MS Dhoni quits ODI and T20 captaincy must have broken millions of hearts across the world. Though Dhoni is reportedly supported by luck throughout his thriving career, success remains a milestone almost a hurdle until a mix of hard work, determination and hunger to win comes into being. A game changer by nature, the latter Indian skipper could have captained team India for even longer, but he hadn't. Why? He might have successive failures in mind that he had been suffering over the last couple of series. Or he might be concerned about the future prospects of Indian cricket. Also when such a big yet shocking decision comes all at once, the chances of internal disputes in the team cannot be negated. However, if the age factor is considered to be the actual reason why Dhoni quits captaincy, this is no less an awe.
