MS Dhoni shocked the world by announcing his retirement from captaincy in limited overs format One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is). Mahendra Singh Dhoni‘s decision to step from the ODI and T20 captaincy has sent shockwaves on the social media. MS Dhoni is very much part of the Indian Cricket Team as he has not announced any retirement plans. The 35-year-old cricketer had already retired from the Test Cricket in 2014 handing over the reins of the Indian Cricket Team to Virat Kohli. This video is for every Indian who watched Captain Cool, MS Dhoni make India the World Champions in 2011. Dhoni’s last over six against Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium remains one of the most monumental moments in the history of game.
The Indian skipper has transformed the Indian Cricket team and lead the team to great victories. The talented wicket keeper-batsman has been known for leading India to the World Cup Win after 27 years, since their win in 1983. The Indian captain has stepped down from the limited overs’ captaincy and decided to play as a team member in his position. The talented batsman is recognised as one of the best captains of the Indian cricket team and made India the Number one team in Test Rankings in 2009.
MS Dhoni was first instilled with the captaincy in September 2007 when he lead the Indian Squad at the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 held in South Africa. India was crowned champions here as Dhoni led the team to victory against Pakistan. The talented skipper, known to be the finisher, also walked us into our first World Cup win in two decades with the monumental six in the last over.
He was known for making some unconventional decisions and proving them to be right, like choosing to enter the field in the World Cup final early instead of following the batting line. These instinctive decisions made by Dhoni played a monumental role in shaping India as a leading team in Cricketing history. The last over of the World Cup Final between India and Sri Lanka in 2011 will bring goose bumps to every Indian Cricketing fan.
While we will miss the captaincy of this legend, we sure hope to see MS Dhoni’s incredible stellar performances in the upcoming matches which play a key role in maintaining India’s position in international cricket.
