Popularly known as ‘Mahi’ by his fans and contemporaries, Mahendra Singh Dhoni shocked the cricket world when he announced his decision to step down as the captain in two installments. He is a tremendous force, a captain who led the Indian Team to World Cup victories in all the three formats of the game. Even without the crown, the man shines bright and has been excelling in the role of an advisor to captain Virat Kohli. His tips have proven to be magical and have helped India to turn the tables on the opposition in recent games. With a stoic exterior and element of unpredictability, it is very difficult to predict what’s going on in Dhoni’s mind. But Ganesha predicts that Dhoni’s performances may fluctuate post June, and that his fitness may become a cause of concern.

Mahi’s Planetary Configuration
Dhoni is currently passing through the Rahu mahadasha and the Venus antardasha. Both these planets are well-placed in his horoscope, thus he will have a very prominent role to play in the Indian Team. He will be able to contribute well to the side with good scores as well as with invaluable inputs and ideas. As he is under the influence of the dasha sequence of the planets placed in the 11th house, he will be able to delight his fans too.

A very crucial phase
Ganesha observes that Jupiter is currently passing over the trio of natal Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon posited in Dhoni’s ascendant. This favourable transit will bless him with the courage, confidence and stamina to face the challenges that may arise in the first half of 2017. Moreover, Saturn will be transiting through the 4th house and will be aspecting the planets posited in his ascendant as well as the 10th house. Both these aspects indicate that Dhoni is going through a very decisive phase and his giving up the captaincy in all formats of the game as well as the end of his stint as the captain of the Pune team are all outcomes of these transits.

Haunted by inconsistency
Things may get a bit tricky for the seasoned campaigner post June, as from June 30, 2017, Dhoni will be under the influence of Rahu mahadasha and Sun antardasha. Inconsistency may start creeping in, and his performances may get affected. He may not be able to rise to the occasion in some matches and may not be able to meet people’s expectations. There are strong indications that he may decide to take a break during this phase.

Fitness blues
During its transit through the sign of Sagittarius, Saturn will be aspecting the natal Sun and Mercury in the 10th house of Dhoni’s chart. Due to this, fitness may become a cause of concern for Mahi. The latter half of 2017 looks a little shaky for him.

Dhoni is here to stay
Though there will be some testing phases and problems for Dhoni in the coming months, he will continue to be in the spotlight in some capacity or the other, before he hangs up his boots. He is going to be a huge asset to the team, which is mainly made up of the younger lot of players. There are decent chances that he will be available as a player for the next World Cup.
