Should MS Dhoni step down as India’s Test captain?

Updated: Jan 14, 2012, 17:51 PM IST

After a dismal captaincy record in overseas tours and his own failure with the bat, MS Dhoni is going through the worst phase of his career as a captain.

With calls for his head growing after the back to back wretched Test series on foreign soil, the pressure on Dhoni is mounting and is reflecting from his statement hinting at retirement from Tests altogether.

Has the time come for Dhoni to step down from Test captaincy? Is this the way for him to concentrate on his batting? Does India need a new captain to lead their Test team? Even if he retires, who should lead the Test side?
