On 15 August 2020 (Saturday), Mahendra Singh Dhoni announced his retirement from all the three formats of cricket, bringing an end to his glorious career as India’s most successful wicketkeeper-batsman and captain. He is the only captain to have won all the three Trophies; the World Cup, T20 World Cup and Champions Trophy for his country.

Dhoni had taken retirement from the longest format of the game in December 2014 and there were a lot of speculations in the cricketing world regarding his goodbye from the limited-overs format. The legend had not played a single match for India since its exit from World Cup 2019 after the loss against New Zealand during the semi-finals.

Now, a year later, the Ranchi Stalwart bought the curtains down on his golden international career of 15 years. Sharing the news of his social media, Dhoni wrote, “Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout. From 1929 hrs consider me as Retired,”

Gambhir and Dhoni have together represented India in a lot of matches and were considered as the pillars of the Indian team. Their partnership during the final of the 2011 World Cup at Wankhede Stadium is still remembered by many fans across the globe.

Reacting to the news of his former teammate’s retirement, the Delhi stalwart tweeted, “From “India A” to “The India” our journey has been full of question marks, commas, blanks & exclamations. Now as you put a full stop to your chapter, I can tell u from experience that the new phase is as exciting and there’s no limit to DRS here!!! Well played @msdhoni @BCCI”

In his golden career of 15 years, MSD scored more than 16,000 international runs and has more than 800 dismissals in international cricket under his belt.
