In his first press conference since stepping down as India's limited-overs captain, Dhoni said that he was always against the idea of split captaincy and that having a single captain for all three formats is the best way forward for Indian cricket.
Dhoni took up the charge as the captain of the Indian team in 2007.
The 35-year-old batsman further revealed that the South Africa series in 2015 was, in his mind, last as limited overs skipper. "I am somebody who believes that in our scenario split captaincy is something that doesn't really work".
MS Dhoni about the team India jersey: "The game has been evolving over the years and the need to have kits that are created to suit the modern game has always been the priority for the team management and Nike". What the Indian thinktank would love to see is a similar sort of a performance in the one-day internationals' as well which is scheduled to begin on January 15. For, Dhoni took over as ODI captain after Rahul Dravid resigned and Sachin Tendulkar turned down the offer to return as skipper. "I wanted him to have some time and then I decided it was time to move on and give Kohli the full captaincy". "MS (Dhoni) was ready to take over Test captaincy", said Kumble ahead of the first ODI against England here on Sunday.
- Dhoni said that this team could be the most successful Indian team ever and will rewrite history. More free now... It depends on what your role is in the team. While he might not be the marauder of old, there is still a fair few runs left in the left-hander and if Yuvraj can play a couple of big innings in this series against England, India will have a really good, experienced option to call upon during the Champions Trophy in the United Kingdom in June. Virat Kohli: Honestly it is a very unusual feeling for me.
"The keeper is always the vice-captain whether announced or not and my role will be to assist Virat".

"If it is about the numbers, I think Virat and this team will win more games than me in all the formats". Other than that, India will have to think a lot about their lower middle order.
"Virat, on occasions, can be a little aggressive and that's the one thing that I need to try and adjust to".
Dhoni has made it amply clear that he would like to bat at four and with Yuvraj Singh back in the squad, it remains to be seen who the team management picks to bat at 4,5,6.
"Cricket is a mental game. Anything happens to you, happens for a reason and happens at a right time in your life", he added. I used to get batting for 25-30 overs.
"If they bowl in my areas, the right areas and the situation permits I would look to hit sixes", Dhoni told long-time teammate Yuvraj.
