BCCI to take decision on India's future captain, says Dhoni

MS Dhoni expressed his concern about his future as captain of the side by saying that it is for the BCCI to take a call on the matter. “It’s not that I don’t enjoy the game, this decision will be taken by the BCCI, it’s not up to me to decide on that,” said Dhoni.

Dhoni has retired from Test cricket but is continuing to play ODIs and T20 Internationals. He said the new coach should have a good understanding of the culture here even if he is not too fluent in Hindi, criteria listed by the BCCI in its advertisement for applicants.

“Communication is not a big problem. We have seen English is not a big barrier with new players. I feel talking in Hindi can be a criterion, but should not be the only criteria. The best man should be selected. We keep playing a lot. We have to see the best option and one of the most important things is whoever understands our culture and upbringing, more than English or Hindi. We have seen whoever we consider as best in the past has understood our culture,” he told.

Dhoni said at present it’s better to see the Zimbabwe tour as a fore-runner for next year’s Champions Trophy and not the 2019 World Cup in England. “I think it’s [2019 World Cup] too early, because I think a lot of changes keep happening. With the amount of cricket we play, the kind of schedule we have at the international level, I think right now thinking about 2019 will be looking too much ahead into the future,” he added.
