MS Dhoni stunned the cricketing world on Wednesday by stepping down as India’s limited-overs captain.
The man who captained India in 199 ODI’s and 72 T20I’s and has won an ICC World Cup, ICC World T20 and ICC Champions Trophy, did this in his own calm and cool way.
“OK, THAT’S it.” MS Dhoni needed just three words to let the chairman of selectors, MSK Prasad, know late Wednesday evening that he was ready to step down as India’s captain in ODIs and T20Is.
As per the reports, after announcing his decision to step down as limited overs captain Dhoni played FIFA fifteen minutes with his Jharkhand teammates.
Could you believe this!
The man himself was locked in a room with his Jharkhand teammates and spoke to them about their stellar run in the ongoing Ranji Trophy. Dhoni spoke to them and reminisced on the many highs and few lows encountered by a young promising team right throughout the tournament.
And when the world was still in shock about Mahi’s decision, a non-flustered Dhoni made his way into a room and starting fiddling with the Playstation and challenged his young Jharkhand teammates for a game.
After the game, he invited the team to a dinner and when he walked out he seemed as cool as one could imagine.
