Indian limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni today side-stepped the intense speculation on his future as captain of the side by saying that it is for the BCCI to take a call on the matter.
"It's not that I don't enjoy the game, this decision will be taken by the BCCI, it's not up to me to decide on that," said Dhoni in the press conference before the team's departure for a limited-overs series against Zimbabwe starting June 11.
Dhoni was responding to former Team Director Ravi Shastri's recent comment backing Test captain Virat Kohli to lead the country in all formats of the game. Shastri had said that Dhoni should be allowed to enjoy the game free of captaincy.
Dhoni has retired from Test cricket but is continuing to play ODIs and T20 Internationals.Guarded on queries regarding his own future, Dhoni answered quite elaborately when asked about the kind of person he would like to see as India's next coach.
Dhoni said the new coach should have a good understanding of the culture here even if he is not too fluent in Hindi, a criteria listed by the BCCI in its advertisement for applicants.
