Mahendra Singh Dhoni resigns as captain
Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has reportedly offered to resign from the captain’s post because of not selecting Rudra Pratap Singh for the ODI team.
The BCCI forcefully denied the reports. MS Dhoni also denied media reports of rift between him and selectors over pacer RP Singh’s exclusion from the squad of next two ODIs against England.
According to television reports, Dhoni had a disagreement with the selectors during the meeting on Thursday to pick the team for the fourth and fifth matches of the ongoing series against England.
Dhoni was unhappy that the selectors decided to drop RP Singh and include Irfan Pathan in his place and offered to resign, the television reports claimed, quoting an unnamed source close to one of the selectors.
