MS Dhoni returns as captain, this time for Jharkhand
Former Indian captain MS Dhoni has been named Jharkhand‘s captain for the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy. The 35-year old will lead a strong 18-member squad for the prestigious 50-overs tournament. It is important to note the captain cool had been sacked from the captaincy by the Rising Pune Supergiants just a few days back. Earlier this year, Dhoni had stepped down from India’s ODI and T20I captaincy in order to concentrate solely on his game during the final phase of his career. After replacing Dhoni with Australian skipper Steven Smith, RPS owner Sanjiv Goenka had stated, “I have the highest regard for Dhoni as a leader and a person. Dhoni will continue to be an important part of our team. He is supportive of the decision keeping the franchise's best interests in mind.
