At the end of the day Dhoni has close to 9000 ODI runs at an average of 51 and a strike rate close to 90. He is also nearing 200 6s in his ODI career. He was our best finisher till his recent slump. A jaded Dhoni needs a new lease of life to rejuvenate his ODI batting career. Unburdening him of his captaincy might do just the trick and we may yet have an attacking ODI batsman for a few more years, at least till the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy in England.
