MS Dhoni’s name has been in the news a lot lately. Whether people are questioning his waning abilities as a batsman in ODI’s or speaking about his supposed retirement, the wicketkeeper-batsman is dominating headlines and social media.

With the retirement rumours coming to an end thanks to Ravi Shastri, there was another incident regarding Dhoni that caught the eye of Indian cricket fans on Twitter.

The BCCI eventually got wind of the situation and made the necessary changes, but not before people trolled them and generally had a good laugh about the gaffe.

Check out some of the best reactions below.

MS Dhoni was first handed the Indian captaincy mantle before the inaugural T20 World Cup in September 2007, a tournament that a young team would eventually go on to lift.

He was made the ODI captain soon after the World T20 success and was eventually handed the Test captaincy just about a year later.

His Test record - especially away from home - wasn’t exactly flattering but aside from a T20 World Cup win, he also led India to a World Cup win in 2011 and a Champions Trophy win in 2013.
