Twitter reacts as MS Dhoni leads India against Afghanistan in the final Super-4 match of the Asia Cup 2018, as Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are rested.
India are through to the Asia Cup final with two wins over Bangladesh and Pakistan. With most of the first-team rested for the final Super-4 match against Afghanistan, Indian fans were treated with a surprise today.
MS Dhoni assumed the captaincy for the first time since his resignation from the position in January last year. This is also the 200th ODI for the Indian wicket-keeper as captain of the national team.
Here is how the Indian fans reacted to Dhoni being named the captain of Indian team:

How good is it to see Dhoni walk out as the Indian captain again? 200 is just a number but glad Dhoni gets to that landmark.

Captain Cool is back!
Some changes for India means Rohit Sharma rests and MS Dhoni once again takes the reins! His 200th ODI as captain.
He’s lost the toss and Afghanistan are batting, while Deepak Chahar makes his debut.
