New Year, New Captain is 2017 the one?

Mahendra Singh Dhoni Steps Down as Limited Overs Captain
India's most successful captain in both the limited over and Test format has called it quits on captaincy. He remains available for selection as a specialist wicketkeeper batsman. This is indeed very noble of him, as even now there is nobody who can fill his quite enormous boots as keeper/batsman in the limited format. Virat Kohli the logical succesor to Dhoni will be grateful that he has decided to ease the transition. Like his Test retirement, this has been a low-key affair that has kept the team's needs in mind. This sums up the man.
