Yesterday, India made history by winning the first ever bilateral series against Australia in Melbourne, and needless to say Dhoni led the team to victory.
Dhoni was declared the man of the series at the end of the match, and rightly so. This is how people reacted:

Terrific series victory by Team India. #Dhoni proved again why he is considered as the greatest finisher of all time. Memorable series it has been for team blue. @imVkohli created history by winning test & ODI series in Australia #3rdODI

They said he is finished,
They said he is old,
They said he is a liability,
They said he must make way.

However, there have been numerous rumours about Dhoni retiring after the series, and this became all the more clear when Dhoni was seeing taking the ball from the umpire at the end of the match.
News began trending on Twitter that Dhoni might be retiring. And turns out, he knew this would happen. This is what he did instead.
See #Dhoni when gave ball to the coach and said " Ball lelo nahi to bolega retirement lerahe ho" 😂
even even #Dhoni wants to play more. #AUSvIND #INDvAUS #Chahal #Jadhav #WhistlePodu@ChennaiIPL pic.twitter.com/B5dMVQEzhR

Did you hear what he said? In case you did not, this is what he told to Sanjay Bangar, batting coach, “Ball lelo nahi to bolega retirement lerahe ho”
We really hope this is not true though, guys! Team India needs you, Dhoni.
