As India took on Afghanistan in their final super fours stage match at Dubai, Indian cricket fans were in for a surprise, as MS Dhoni walked out for the toss as the Indian captain in place of both Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, with both being rested.
MS Dhoni gave up captaincy in 2017 in limited overs after leading India in 199 ODIs.
But by leading India in this match, he reached the milestone of captaining his country in 200 ODIs. It was a sight that fans of Dhoni and team India missed for a long time since Dhoni gave up captaincy.
When asked about completing 200 ODIs as India captain, Dhoni said, "It's destiny. Good to complete 200 ODIs."
Twitter was amazed at this development and showed their elation in form of tweets and we have collated some of them for you.
Here are some tweets:

My friend was in coma and I whispered "Dhoni is captaining India" in his ear. He is now preparing to take part in Marathon next week. #IndvAfg— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) September 25, 2018
200th ODI for @msdhoni as captain and for the first time, he has too many changes to say. Not that it matters so much but good on getting the double.— Nikhil ???? (@CricCrazyNIKS) September 25, 2018
