Dhoni shocked one and all when he stepped down as the skipper of CSK a couple of days ahead of the start of the season. With Ravindra Jadeja in charge, one still knew the focus would be on Dhoni. He has surely answered his critics with the bat in his hand and would hope for many more such valuable knocks throughout the season.
