Expressing amusement over Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni‘s decision to retire from Test cricket, former Indian cricketer Anshuman Gaekwad  said coercion is always there when someone lead as a skipper in all the three formats that is Test, One Day International and T20 format, on Tuesday.

Along the way Mahendra Singh Dhoni demonstrated leadership qualities, which were identified when Rahul Dravid gave up captaincy in 2007. Just before that proclamation from Rahul Dravid, Mahendra Singh Dhoni had taken a bundle of youngsters to South Africa and was leading India to a World Cup win in a format the country did not even take earnestly. The One Day International captaincy was natural process, and Anil Kumble just kept the driver’s seat warm in Tests for one year.

Anshuman Gaekwad said that the way that Mahendra Singh Dhoni has declared his retirement in the middle of the test series with one match still left, it is a shocking news.

He also added that pressure is always there and it is more when someone lead as a skipper in all the three formats that is Test, One Day International and T20 format and he replied when asked if there was any pressure on Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Former cricketer Kirti Azad said the new youngsters should be given chances so that new ideas, new talents can be introduced for the future of Indian cricket. He added that Virat Kohli would prove a better skipper for the Indian cricket team.

Dhoni’s declaration came after his team lost the Border-Gavaskar Trophy to Australia in Melbourne.

On the other hand, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s decision is the output against the interest of Indian cricket, said Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Joint Secretary Anurag Thakur.

He also said that his dedication to One Day Internationals and T20s shows that he will kingpin on the International Cricket Council World Cup 2015 and win the cup again.
