Harsha Bhogle explains the REAL REASON why MS Dhoni stepped down as captain of ODI and T20 teams

In a surprise move, MS Dhoni has stepped down as limited overs captain of the Indian cricket team, thereby drawing curtains to his glorious leadership career.

While expressing his desire to quit captaincy, Dhoni however conveyed to the selection committee that he will be available for selection for the three ODIs and as many T20s against England starting January 15.

Meanwhile famous cricket commentator Harsh Bhogle decoded Dhoni’s decision and its timing of leaving the captaincy ahead of the Champions Trophy.

Bhogle sent out a series of tweets in which he tried to explain the REAL REASON why Captain Cool at this moment stepped down as as India’s ODI and T20 captain. Bhogle praised Dhoni for his contribution to Indian cricket and also added that quitting before early is a very selfless move.

He wrote on Twitter : “Time to stand up and applaud a magnificent servant, and indeed leader, of Indian cricket. #Dhoni. Clearly Dhoni thinks the moment has come. Thought he would quit after the Champions Trophy, but this is a selfless move. World T20, World Cup, Champions Trophy, Test No 1, IPL titles, Champions League titles. Everything in the game. #Dhoni. Many memories, many emotions. But typical of a man who never hogged the limelight; even as captain of a World Cup winning team. Trying to think like #Dhoni. Kohli most likely 2019 World Cup captain, so best that he leads in the Champions Trophy so best he starts now. Good thing about this decision is that there is still no competition for Dhoni. Would be keen to know who he consulted though! Suspect nobody.”
