MS Dhoni is Still India’s Captain on BCCI’s Website

MS Dhoni

The website of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has a major glitch, goofing the profile of MS Dhoni as the captain of Team India.

After serving as the captain of Team India across all three formats for almost a decade, the veteran wicket-keeper resigned from captaincy in 2017 and was replaced by Virat Kohli in all three formats.

The Ranchi local has undoubtedly been one of the best captains the world of cricket has ever seen. Dhoni is the only captain to win all three ICC trophies as he captured the World T20 in 2007, the World Cup in 2011 and the Champions Trophy in 2013.

MS Dhoni also led the Men in Blue to the summit of the ICC Test rankings in 2009 for the first time ever. Moreover, Team India also tasted victory in a tri-series in Australia for the first time in his captaincy reign while they also completed the whitewash of the Australian team in Australia during the three-match T20I series back in 2016.

The now 37-year-old’s captaincy career began in 2007 after the ICC World Cup, and his long tenure as captain ended in 2017, after the Men in Blue had been knocked out in the semi-finals of the World T20 in 2016 by the West Indies.

The wicket-keeper hung his boots from Test cricket during the Australian tour in 2014-15, and gave up the captaincy in the limited overs in 2017 when he believed that it was the perfect time for Virat Kohli to takeover the national side.

Meanwhile, the veteran batter has had a lot of criticism aimed at his batting form, with Dhoni being unable to score runs at a faster pace.

However, two years after Dhoni gave up captaincy, the BCCI’s website still features the Ranchi local as the captain of the team on his official profile.

Here is the proof:
