Yes, that’s what MS Dhoni does all the time. This legendary captain’s retirement trembled the whole cricket fraternity and fan world.

His unexpected sixes, timely gaming and shocking resignment from test cricket were the signs that reflect his unpredictable stature.

Soon after his announcement on giving up limited overs captaincy, the social media is turning around his record-breaking performances, best finishing moments, witty tweets and astonishing tactics as the captain of India.

Thanks to Dhoni, for an unforgettable world cup sugar coated with precious six, a T20 world cup and indirectly an inspiring biopic ‘The Untold Story’.

Virat’s Brilliant Performance In Test Format ‘As Captain’: We can observe some outstanding performances from the current test skipper Virat Kohli, this might be the main reason why Dhoni decided to completely hand over the reins of the team to the Indian Test skipper. Kohli is already enjoying a dream run in test format which he might replicate in ODI if a chance is given.

Speculations are going on stating that Kohli might be appointed as the captain for all three formats. Well! this can be assumed that Dhoni wants to step down by himself before the formalities took over him.

Anurag Thakur Ousted As BCCI President: Dhoni has got some good communication with then BCCI president, and Anurag’s stepping down might bring fluctuations in Dhoni’s captaincy. In order to stabilise himself, Dhoni might have decided to step down all by himself instead of taking some external orders.

Long Tenure of Captaincy: Last year, right after the ICC T20, a reporter asked Dhoni about his future plans and retirement. His fans applauded him for the possible wittiest answer though his critics berated him for arrogance, It appears like Dhoni might have given a rethink after a miserable IPL season. The two-time IPL winning captain came under fire after his team finished at the bottom.

He had quit Test cricket after the burden of multiple captaincies. Maybe, he wanted to relax and continue playing for India.

Recollect his title ‘A Finisher: Despite his astonishing captaincy Dhoni is regarded as the best finisher and wicket keeper. It is even believed that this legend is thinking about bouncing back as the best finisher India has ever had.

His winning six in the final of ICC World Cup is still fresh in our minds. It should be noticed that he lost the grace that he had earlier. Now there is a hope to expect some good game from Dhoni as he is out of the burden of being a captain.
