MS DHONI IPL


Mahendra Singh Dhoni was on Sunday removed as captain from the Indian Premier League team Rising Pune Supergiants.


Dhoni has not stepped down. We have appointed Steve Smith as the skipper for the upcoming season. Frankly speaking, we did not have a good last season and we wanted someone young to lead the side and revamp it ahead of the upcoming season 10," Supergiants' owner Sanjiv Goenka said.


The most expensive player of the tournament that began in 2008, Dhoni also has been among the most successful. Part of the now suspended Chennai Super Kings franchise from 2008 to 2015, Dhoni led the team to back-to-back titles in 2010 and 2011. Besides, he also led Chennai to the Champions League T20 trophies in 2010 and 2014.



This is the first time Dhoni has been been removed as captain from a team in his illustrious career. Naturally, Twitterati couldn't hold back in expressing it's shock.


Here are some of the best tweets:
