MS Dhoni took a big decision in 2017 of stepping down from the captaincy of Indian limited-overs sides but continued his career as a player and no less a mentor of the team in the field under Virat Kohli’s captaincy. Dhoni’s batting turned out to be a crucial factor for India during critical stages as his experience made the difference while his glove work behind the stumps was as sharp as ever throughout the year.
