Dhoni shocked the cricketing fraternity and fans with his sudden decision to step down as the skipper of India's ODI and T20I skipper on Wednesday (Jan 4).
Dhoni has made himself available to play under a new captain, which should be Kohli, and this has been conveyed to the selectors who, thus, will choose him over other claimants.
India's Test skipper Virat Kohli, the heir apparent the Captain Cool, saluted Dhoni and thanked him for being such a great captain. Cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar also hailed Dhoni's decision and asked the fans to 'celebrate' his captaincy.
The BCCI now has shared heart melting video on its Twitter handle showing important moments from Captain Cool's life on the cricket field.
