Mumbai: While her husband Mahendra Singh Dhoni is yet to take to social media to talk about him stepping down as India’s limited-over skipper, Sakshi Dhoni, MS Dhoni’s wife, has taken to Twitter with a “Proud of You” message for India’s World Cup winning captain.

In what came as a major jolt to the cricket fraternity, Dhoni decided to step down as India’s ODI and T20 captain on Wednesday. While some felt him hanging his captaincy boots was around the corner, not many expected him to take the decision just over a week before the ODI series against England begins.

However, Dhoni, who hardly ever played for milestones and was just a game away from captaining India in 200 ODIs, felt the time was apt to pass on the mantle to Virat Kohli.

The tributes and wishes have been unstoppable ever since he announced his decision and a wish from MS Dhoni’s wife will remain special for the man who won it all for India.

Sakshi took to Twitter to say this:

Sakshi Dhoni, MS Dhoni
