 Dhoni steps down as captain of India team in ODIs and T20

Mahendra Singh Dhoni has stepped down as captain of the Indian team. He has resigned as India's cricket captain. He was leading the Indian team in ODIs and T20 ever since he retired from Tests on December 30, 2016. The committee will meet on Friday (January 06) to select the team for the three-match ODI series against England. Dhoni has unprecedented success as a limited overs captain, winning the World T20 in 2007, the ICC World Cup in 2011 and the Champions Trophy 2013. "Mahendra Singh Dhoni has informed the BCCI, that he wishes to step down as the captain of the Indian Cricket Team from the One Day Internationals and the T20 Internationals formats of the game," Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said in a release. Dhoni holds the record for most matches as captain of an international side, with 331 games across formats. He is also the only player to captain in 50+ matches in each of the three formats apart from being the only captain to win all three ICC Trophies - World Cup, WT20 and Champions Trophy. His last series as captain came against New Zealand at home, where he led the Indian side to a 3-2 series win.
