Former India skipper MS Dhoni is known to be unpredictable – be it taking decisions on-the-field or life. The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly agreed to that during a recent chat with India Test opener Mayank Agarwal on his birthday on a show called ‘Open Nets With Mayank’ – a couple of days back and narrated how he too was surprised when Dhoni walked up to him during his last Test and asked him to lead the side – a gesture that won hearts.

“That (handing over captaincy) was a bit of a surprise. I didn’t expect it. But MS Dhoni being MS Dhoni, he is full of surprises like his captaincy. We were winning the Test match and my mind was on retirement. I don’t know what I did for those 3, 4 overs,” Ganguly added.
