The game of cricket has seen retirement happen in a ‘certain’ way. While the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Jacques Kallis were given a farewell game, players such as Gautam Gambhir and AB de Villiers retired with a special video. In this aspect too, Dhoni surprised everyone and showed why he really is the Captain ‘Cool’.
No speculations in the media
A few months ago, the news of Dhoni’s retirement was the only item in the sports pages. However, cut to a few months later, the topics had shifted elsewhere. It is now that MSD chose to make the decision.
And how did he do this? No formal press meets or specially edited videos for the taking. A simple collection of photos with an old Hindi song in the background. Coming to the caption, he was cool here too. He just requested all of us to consider him as retired.

A legend whom we thought would leave in a different way
MSD defied expectations in the way he has chosen to retire from the game. Many of us had already imagined a picture in our mind as to how he would exit from the sport. However, just like himself, Dhoni took a different route and caught all of us by surprise.
Well, that’s Dhoni, and he proved it yet again in the final move of his as an international cricketer. That said, MSD has not given details regarding whether he would be retiring from domestic cricket, and that will still excite the fans. IPL is in the offing, and we just hope that he carries on for a few more seasons.
