Since he went on a sabbatical post India’s exit from the 2019 World Cup after the semi-final defeat against New Zealand last year, speculations were rife that MS Dhoni may have played his last in Indian colours.

Many experts had questioned his place in the Indian team, while a few others had already even written his epitaph, but some others, who loved his cricketing acumen and his abilities as a match winner and a leader, wanted to see him play once more, may be in the T20 World Cup.

MS Dhoni, his retirement and his place in the T20 World Cup or least in the Indian team, had been the most extensively discussed topic in Indian cricket for some time now.

And while others were making conjectures on what he would do next or when would he announce his retirement, MS Dhoni called it a day on Sunday, August 15, when it was least expected, in the mostly unlikely way, yet his own quirky way-through an instragram post.

The former Indian captain wrote on his official Instagram handle,” Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout.from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired (sic).”

Although the post did not confirm the formats from which he retired, Kyro Sports understands that the captain cool may have retired only from International cricket and he would participate in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, which begins next month in UAE.
