BCCI will take decision on captaincy: MS Dhoni on making Virat Kohli skipper in all formats

New Delhi: Ahead of Team India's tour to Zimbabwe, limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni addressed the media on Tuesday.

During the short sojourn, India are slated to play three ODIs and three T20Is.

Sandeep Patil-led selection committee has picked a young team, with the intention of testing the bench strength on the tour, which will kickstart from June 11.

Though, Zimbabwe are considered minnows, Dhoni feels that it's going to be a different experience for him while leading a less inexperienced side.

“It will be a different experience. I will be playing with many players for the first time,” Dhoni was quoted as saying by ANI.

Mahi believes his biggest challenge would be slot placing in the batting order.

“Zimbabwe can be challenging at times, our challenge will be slot placing in the batting order,” added Dhoni.

When asked about BCCI's Hindi language criteria for the next coach, Dhoni tried to elaborate the idea behind it: “Hindi can be a criteria but not the only criteria. Language is not a concern, a coach should understand our culture.”

While answering a tricky question of giving Virat Kohli the captaincy in all 3 formats, Captain Cool put the ball in BCCI's court by saying: “I enjoy my game, captaincy decision will be taken by BCCI.”
