Should Dhoni quit captaincy?

Despite humiliating defeats on home soil, under fire Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni refused to step down from captaincy, saying it was not the right time to run away but take responsibility and turn the team's fortunes. Should Dhoni quit captaincy? Tell us.

MSD should step down as skipper otherwise selectors have to take this call as early as possible and perhaps he should be dropped from the team also. before yuvraj and vajji he should be shown the door........

It is high time that Dhoni is shown the door, just for a simple reason that he is not performing as a wicket keeper or as a batsman and moreover he has become more rigid now a days. Looks like his mind has shut off (Not shrewd as he used to be or so called). Give all the youngsters more rope and come up with a young captain.

Should not quit, but he should be asked to pay 1 crore rupees for every test match loss. It can be used for individual sports development like TT, Badminton etc.

Disgraceful performance by our recognised batsman especially Dhoni, Tendulkar and Yuvraj cost us the match .All of them, showed lack of focus and responsibility. It is time the selectors noted these seriously and take appropriate action. Dhoni should be sacked first and he should stop giving unwanted comments/statements on areas on which he has no knowledge. Look at the arrogance when he talks of batsmen taking more responsibility after playing a reckless shot at a critical juncture. Hats off to Ashwin and even Ishant for showing tremendous responsibility in avoiding an innings defeat. Their performance puts to shame the pathetic contribution of recognized batsman.

He should not.. there is not replacment for him at this momemnt (no keeper even in domestic, no better person to take over and his average is better than many other batsman in team.
changing captain at this moment is a temp step we need to look to build someone and than replace.
Badrinath should be in team, jadeja also deserve looking at domestic peromance.. give the team which is good not the team which looks good..

Dhoni has no moral rights to remain as captain and if he is not captain , he is not fit to play test cricket. His batting average in test cricket will speak for itself.
