The Jharkhand State Cricket Association today appealed to Mahendra Singh Dhoni to continue as captain for the entire length of the Test series against Australia following his decision to quit with immediate effect.
Reportedly JSCA Secretary Rajesh Verma said in Jamshedpur that he was surprised to learn that Dhoni has decided to quit Test cricket in the middle of the series. He said he would certainly wish Dhoni to continue as captain in the whole series.
Complimenting Dhoni’s contribution to competitive cricket, he said the local lad from Ranchi was a successful captain in all the three formats of the game.
He said, “We salute Dhoni as he has proved his mettle in all the three versions of the game and was the only cricketer from Jharkhand to lead the country successfully for so long.”
