From Virat Kohli To Sehwag, Entire Cricket World Reacts To Dhoni’s Retirement & Wishes Him Luck

There was a lot of excitement among fans of MS Dhoni as they were happy with the fact that Thala will be stepping on the field after a long time for the IPL 2020. However, now everyone is a little upset because yesterday MS Dhoni announced his retirement from the international cricket. Though we will be able to see Dhoni playing the IPL, it is also true that ardent fans of Mahi wanted to see him in blue jersey again and they feel that the wicketkeeper batsman deserves a farewell match at least.

Dhoni last played for the country in the 2019 ICC World Cup semi-final which India lost to New Zealand. Since then, he made himself unavailable for the selection. There were a lot of speculations in regard to Dhoni’s return in the national team and his retirement. While the fans of Dhoni expected him to make a comeback in the Indian squad for the T20 ICC World Cup, some cricket experts were raising doubts over Mahi’s fitness as he had not played cricket for a long time.

The head coach of the Indian cricket team, Ravi Shastri once said that Dhoni’s chances of playing in the T20 ICC World Cup 2020 will depend a lot on his performance in the IPL 2020. But the league got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and then the T20 ICC World Cup 2020 also got postponed, making all the chances of Dhoni’s comeback very bleak. However, nobody expected that Dhoni will make the announcement of his retirement in this manner and at this juncture.

Dhoni took to his official Instagram handle and posted, “Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout.from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired”.

He also posted a montage of the photos of some moments of his career with the beautiful song, “Mein pal do pal ka shayar hu”.
