Robin Singh, Former Indian All-rounder: "Yeah definitely it will make a difference. I think they should consider the change (in captaincy) in the T20, and test matches also."
Rajesh Chauhan, Former Indian Spinner: "Why is everyone considerate for Asia Cup, look no team is unbeatable, but the absence of some senior player will make a difference like Sehwag, Gambhir, Sachin, and now Dhoni. The absence of Dhoni is going to be felt somewhere, but who knows this team will surprise everyone with its performance under the captaincy of Virat. There's a difference between both the captains. Dhoni doesn't show excitement, Virat is bit aggressive in nature, so it will be worth watching the performance of team India under the new captain. Team work is very important in winning the matches."
Shamya Dasgupta, Sr. Editor, Wisden India: "I don't think so this will make any difference, but apart from that Mahender Singh Dhoni is not only a good captain but also a dependable batsmen, an efficient wicket-keeper. To get all these qualities in one player is quite difficult but Dinesh Karthik is also a good option. He bats well, and is also a good wicket-keeper. I think that its an opportunity for Virat Kohli to prove himself as he is young and energetic and Dhoni is almost 36-37 years old. So they have to look at what options they have in their kitty?.
