Indian Cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has hinted over his quitting of Captaincy from the longer format of the game after the series lose against England in England.

When Dhoni was asked if he had taken the team to the extent how much he can, Dhoni said: “Maybe, yes.

You’ll have to wait and watch. If I’m strong enough or not strong enough, you’ll have to wait and get the news.

MS Dhoni led India in 58 Tests which is a record and overseen a recorded 27 wins out of them.

India lost only one of Dhoni’s first 13 series in charge, with winning eight series straight away in a run that saw India topping the world Test rankings from late 2009 until the summer of 2011, during which Dhoni led his team to victory in the World Cup at home.

However, India started surrendering their number one ranking with a 4-0 whitewash in England, a result that began their poor run away from home.

This present series defeat came through a dramatic slide in the series after a 95-run win in the second Test at Lord’s, which gave the visitors a 1-0 series lead.

Following a 266-run loss in the third Test at Southampton, India were twice beaten by an innings, where India failed to reach 200 in five consecutive attempts that included the occasion of been bowled out for 94 inside 30 overs on the third afternoon at The Oval.

The last three Tests, we were not up to the mark,” said Dhoni, “We never competed.

Today’s batting was a reflection of a loss of confidence. It’s disappointing.

Right from the start, our batsmen haven’t performed – it was the lower order. Later on in the series, when the lower order didn’t perform, we saw there wasn’t enough runs on the board.
