The smooth transition of captaincy from Captain Cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni to the more aggressive Virat Kohli is in the offing as the former quit captaincy from ODIs’ and T20I’s on the eve of team selection of Indian Team against England. It is a welcome move as there is no confusion or the controversy as we witnessed in Indian Cricket in the past. Dhoni did relinquish test captaincy on 30-12-2014 and after two years he quit captaincy from the shortest form of the game. Unlike other Indian captains he was not under pressure to step down. Now the question is that whether he will last till 2019 World cup and retire majestically once for all from all formats of the game. Dhoni’s high percentage of success in 199 one day matches revealed his stature as captain. As a wicket keeper, he was confidence personified behind the stumps and effected crucial stumpings and run outs helping out the winning cause. He is no doubt a Captain Cool in all the three departments of the game.
