After unconfirmed reports of M S Dhoni likely to be sacked as T20 and ODI captain surfaced in the media, BCCI allegedly denied such reports on Friday saying that there is no such move and Dhoni will stay as the captain.
Media reports said that Sehwag and Gambhir were tipped to be skipper in shorter formats.
A report in CNN-IBN says that the BCCI have dismissed reports of Dhoni likely to lose his captaincy. The report says that the board has come out in support of the Indian skipper and said that the entire blame cannot be put on Dhoni's shoulders and it is a collective defeat.
India crashed out of the T20 World Cup after Sri Lanka beat them in West Indies. Dhoni, speaking at a press conference, partly blamed the IPL parties saying that the night outs and extensive travelling took a toll on the players' bodies and they were exhausted, hence could not give their best.
This remark raised a storm in the country and there were speculations in the media that a vindictive BCCI may axe him.
