Octozone: Mahendra Singh Dhoni's decline has begun

Saturday, 22 February 2014 - 7:01am IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA

This is the beginning of the end for Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

The India skipper, who was born in 1981, has a horoscope similar to that of Roger Federer and Iker Casillas. Nowadays, Dhoni is failing to deliver are because he has achieved too much too soon. He has won two World Cups, a Champions Trophy crown, two IPL titles, a Champions League Twenty20 crown besides guiding India to No. 1 in the ICC Test rankings.

It's time now for the other 1981-born captains to shine. While Brendon McCullum marshalled his troops in style recently, Graeme Smith has led South Africa to the No. 1 position in tests. Wait and watch how Michael Clarke slowly leads the Aussies to their invincible position of yore.

A transiting Saturn will only fasten Dhoni's decline. Dhoni's boys will win a few matches in England later this year, but will be totally outclassed and humbled in Australia. The upcoming World Twenty20 in Bangladesh will be won by a younger captain. Chennai Super Kings will never win another IPL under Dhoni. And yes, he will not be able to defend his world crown in 2015. He will duly step down.
