Mahendra Singh Dhoni has stepped down as India's limited-overs captain but will still be available for selection, the Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) said on Wednesday.

Dhoni not only holds the record for most matches as captain of an international side, with 331 games across all formats, but also is the only captain to have won all three ICC trophies - ODI World Cup, World Twenty20 and Champions Trophy.

Considered India's most successful ever captain, Dhoni stunned everyone when he announced his decision to quit Test cricket in the middle of an Australian tour in 2014, handing the mantle to Virat Kohli who is likely to be also given the reins in the shorter formats.

Here's how the Twitteratti reacted to this shocker from Dhoni:
