Mahendra Singh Dhoni, one of India’s finest captains has announced his retirement from international cricket. He has posted on his Instagram account confirming his decision.
Dhoni had already retired from Test cricket back in 2014. But he continued to play in ODI and T20 matches. In 2017, he stepped down from the Captain of India and played under Virat Kohli’s leadership.
But on Saturday 7:29 pm IST, Dhoni declared that he has retired from International cricket, meaning he won’t play ODI and T20 matches again for India.
MS Dhoni wrote on Instagram: “Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout.from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired.”
This a sad news for all the Indians as Dhoni has brought home numerous trophies. He has won the 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 ODI World Cup and the Champions Trophy in 2013. He also took India to the No 1 position in Test cricket.
This will be a huge loss not only for India but for the whole cricketing world.
Although, MS Dhoni will continue to play for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL. The 13th edition of IPL is scheduled to take place in UAE from 19th September. BCCI has decided to take it outside of India due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
