If they want to take captaincy away from me, I am fine: MS Dhoni

Posted By: PTI

Mirpur, June 22: Under-fire India captain MS Dhoni in a sarcastic tone said that if his removal from captaincy can help Indian cricket move in right direction then he is game for it.

"I am always the one who is responsible for anything bad that happens in Indian cricket. Everything that happens is because of me. Even the Bangladesh media is smiling," Dhoni gave a tongue-in-cheek reply to a question at the post-match press conference yesterday (June 21) about how much responsibility of this series loss lies with him. Bangladesh beat India by 6 wickets.

Will the selectors remove Dhoni as ODI captain?

When the question was asked differently about how long he would continue as captain, he made it clear that he would continue but not before taking a dig at the scribe.

"I am really enjoying my cricket. But when the earlier question was asked, I knew this question one was coming. These questions are always popping at me. The media loves me.

"If it is justifiable if you remove me and the Indian cricket will start doing well, and if I am the reason for all the bad that's happening to Indian cricket, definitely I would love to step away and play as a player. (Catch controversy)

"It doesn't really matter, who is the captain because I was never really in line to become the captain. It was a job or responsibility for me. They want to take it away from me, I am fine," he said.
