The day that fans of Indian cricket feared the most has ironically arrived on the country’s Independence Day. The legend of the game, MS Dhoni, officially announced his retirement from international cricket.
A heartwarming video to announce the decision
It was only a few days ago that MS Dhoni said that he would consider himself retired if someone beats him at a race in the team. Well, at 19:29 today, Dhoni himself asked all of us to consider himself as retired from international cricket. To go with it, the legend posted a video that was a collection of his memories. We are sure you cannot stop tears to flow by while watching this video.
Fans pour wishes for MSD
MS Dhoni is a household name in India. Him not wearing the blue jersey again will be tough news to digest. However, like everything, we must move on, and wish luck to the individual for his future endeavors. Social media has gone into a meltdown since the news, as it was quite unexpected. Dhoni is dominating in almost every trend on the net, and here are a few tweets in this regard:

The best thing about Dhoni – He never cared about haters and was always calm.. So much to learn from him.. Captain cool for a reason.. Love him, or hate him but you can't ignore his awe inspiring aura ✨ #Dhoni

This match, this runout, this moment (like hundred others) is etched in my memory. Billion hearts were pounding and he didn't even blink his eye to allow the batsman to cross the line. Grateful to all such moments, Thalaivaa. ❤#Dhoni > Tattoo boys pic.twitter.com/sbdbnSBsIx

Jersey 7 was not only a number , but an emotion for many. @msdhoni gave more to cricket than a whole generation could give. In Cricket definitely, Captain Cool , but in reality too , as you faced many backlashes with that calmness.
Wish You Great Life Ahead !
