MS Dhoni is often hailed as India’s best captain. He has won most of the Tests, the 2011 World Cup and the 2007 ICC T20 World Cup.
But cricket fans are of the opinion that the 'captain cool' should make way for a new skipper in Tests, an online survey conducted by HT on Tuesday suggested.
India's latest away series defeat at the end of a dismal tour of New Zealand triggered calls on Tuesday for a change in leadership.
But skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was eager to accentuate the positive after the Test series loss, saying his team will improve when it gets more experience in the five-day game.
According to the survey, majority of the respondents were disappointed with Dhoni's captaincy in the Tests.
What's more, when asked if he should step aside as the Tests captain around 70% of the 1,550 respondents (till 9.30pm on Feb 18) said "Yes".
Around 29% of the voters showed that they still have faith in Dhoni and said that he should continue as the captain.
