MS Dhoni, the former skipper of India is known for his brilliance on the field around the globe. He has been the best captain in the history of this game in India, having won all the ICC trophies. It was under his leadership that took the Indian cricket team to number one position.

However, he has been on the receiving end of criticism because of his performance since many months now. He is not able to give his best with his bat but his experienced and wise decisions have always worked in favor of the team. He is the most intelligent player on the field.

But he has now been dropped from the team. Hard to believe but it’s true, MS Dhoni has been dropped from the team for the upcoming series against Australia and the rest of the matches against West Indies.

Yesterday, the chief selector MSK Prasad revealed why he has been dropped from the team :

He [Dhoni] is not going to play the six T20Is [West Indies and Australia] because we are looking at the second keeper’s slot. So I think we will retain Rishabh [Pant] and Dinesh Karthik. So they will be getting a chance to keep and bat.”

MSK Prasad also expressed that it is not the end of an era for MS Dhoni in T20 cricket, but just a break. He said :

“It is not the end of Dhoni in T20Is,” 

Well, the news came out as a huge shock to the fans of MS Dhoni, who were left disappointed and heart-broken. As soon as the news broke out, the fans flooded the twitter with tweets slamming MSK Prasad and BCCI for their decisions. Some of them even slammed Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper.

Here, have a look at how twitter reacted to this :
