The Winds of Change are Here
This series has many important undertones and questions. There is a lot of speculation on the future of Indian cricket and even more importantly Dhoni’s future in Indian cricket. With the clarion for Dhoni’s retirement being sounded in the aftermath of the Bangladesh loss, it is fair to say that it’s on the basis of this innocuous Gandhi-Nelson Series that the million dollar question; whether to continue with Dhoni as captain for the 2016 T20 World Cup or should he retire and give Virat Kohli sufficient time to build his team will be answered.
Maybe Dhoni will himself feel that the team has moved on and now looks towards Kohli as the leader. As an Indian cricket fan, the only hope is that such a transition is not ugly towards either Kohli or Dhoni. In any case, Dhoni will perhaps go down as one of the greatest captains in the history of Indian cricket and Kohli will no doubt have his own share of glory and legacy. Let the games begin !
