India vs Australia 2019: Is the Bengaluru game be former India skipper MS Dhoni’s last T20I game? Sorry MSD fans, it could very well be his last as India does not have any more T20I fixtures before the World Cup. The upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup is looked at as Dhoni’s last event. The 37-year-old has served the country for more than a decade and has taken the cricket to greater heights. He has undoubtedly been India’s most successful captain ever. The veteran still continues to inspire and is extremely valuable to the team, even today. He is priceless with the bat and the gloves and his cricketing brain is irreplaceable.

Social media too think to believe it is Dhoni’s last T20I:

Dhoni has led the team to two World triumphs; inaugural T20 in 2007 and the 2011 ICC World Cup. He has also led the team to Champions Trophy triumph and led the Test side to become No in the world. The legend has featured in 97 T20Is (excluding today’s match) and has amassed 1577 runs at a strike rate of 125.26 and an average of 37.55.

The current captain and former captain- Kohli and Dhoni – will be looking to get themselves 50 T20I sixes. The 37-year-old Dhoni has 49 sixes while Kohli is just one behind at 48. The race for this unique record will be on, when these players get on the pitch in Bengaluru against the Aussies.
