MS Dhoni Sacked as Rising Pune Supergiants captain

Here is a bad news for MS Dhoni fans MS Dhoni has been sacked as Rising Pune Supergiants captain and he will be replaced by Steve Smith.

RPS owner Sanjiv Goenka said, "Yes we have opted for Steve Smith as captain of RPS for the forthcoming IPL season. I have been thinking about this decision since the end of the last season and discussing it with my management team. And our thought is to have a younger captain at the helm of the team this year. We have a very good mix of youth and experience in the team and feel we need a young mind and a young captain with different ideas to spearhead Rising Pune Supergiants."

He also said, We could have done much better. I have one more year as a franchisee owner and I want to give it my best. I have the luxury of two current international captains in my team. I feel Steve can make a difference. He will get all the support he needs to lead Rising Pune Supergiants.

He confirmed that he has also talked with Dhoni about this, Mahi was cooperation personified when we conveyed the decision to him. I don't need to tell you that he is a great player and captain and there is no doubt he remains a backbone of the team as a batsman and wicket-keeper. From Dhoni the captain I have learnt a lot. Especially his ability to remain calm under pressure. And we will need him to be at his best this year as player. In my opinion he is one of the sharpest minds I have known and will always be there to advise and help Steve.
