MS Dhoni announced his international retirement last week on August 15, more than 13 months after he last played for India. Though many saw it coming, the way the veteran walked away left almost everyone moist-eyed. Tributes and congratulatory messages are pouring in for the legendary cricketer ever since then and it hasn’t stopped even now.
The fantasy gaming platform, Dream11, has given a special tribute to Dhoni for his contribution to the Indian cricket through its dream team. The wicketkeeper-batsman also happens to be the brand ambassador of Dream11, which is also the title sponsor of the IPL this year, and the company, in its tribute, has stated, ‘Leader of All Hearts. Always in our Dream11.
Also, some special cricketers are a part of the dream team in the video. The likes of Rishabh Pant, Ravi Ashwin, AB de Villiers, Dinesh Karthik, Faf du Plessis, Jasprit Bumrah, Jason Holder, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Quinton de Kock and Kagiso Rabada have featured in it and have reminisced playing with and against MS Dhoni over the last few years.
They have praised and thanked the former India skipper for always being humble on and off the field. Rishabh Pant, especially, has been very kind in his words and has termed Dhoni as a special person in his life. The youngster will now have a huge responsibility to fill in his shoes on a long term basis.
Here’s the video:
