Indian cricket fans were not blooming these days, as the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was announced recently amid Corona virus epidemic. The BCCI had decided to organize the IPL in the UAE, which is going to start from September 19. Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is also going to be seen in this IPL, but before that MS Dhoni has given a big blow to his fans.
Actually, MS Dhoni has become free from international cricket. The meaning of freedom from international cricket is that it will never be able to play international cricket for India. On August 15, that is, on the special occasion of the country’s Independence Day, he has said goodbye to international cricket. MS Dhoni, who has been away from international cricket for more than a year, had a lot of discussions that he was about to retire, as he was not active in the cricket world.
It was Dhoni’s last match
MS Dhoni played his last match in the World Cup 2019, when he landed in the blue jersey of the Indian team against New Zealand. MS Dhoni had scored a half-century in difficult conditions in that match, but could not make the Indian team to the final. Dhoni looked very disappointed that day. Many cricket pundits even went so far as to say that they have landed on the field for the last time and may never appear in a blue jersey. It happened.
Dhoni decided to retire suddenly and got rid of international cricket. With this, all the news and talk has come to an end, in which MS Dhoni was said to be back in international cricket. From here on, neither speculation nor MS Dhoni will be part of any scheme of things of the Indian team, because now they will not like playing international cricket. However, MS Dhoni will continue to be active in IPL.
MS Dhoni is counted among the most successful captains of the world, not only in India, as he is the only captain to have won all ICC trophies. Whether it is T20 World Cup or ODI World Cup or ICC Champions Trophy Dhoni has brought all the titles to the country. Dhoni won the T20 World Cup as captain in 2007, while Dhoni was the one-day World Cup winner in 2011. Apart from this, 2013 ICC Champions Trophy was also won by Dhoni.
The Ranchi-born Dhoni is quite famous for his surprising decisions, whether it is the bowling of the last over from Newcomer Joginder Sharma in the T20 World Cup or his own batting order in the final of the World Cup 2011. Dhoni was always astounded. Dhoni surprised everyone by bowling with Ashwin in the final of ICC Champions Trophy 2013, while Dhoni’s decision to retire in the middle of the series against Australia was also shocking. Similarly, on August 15, he has said goodbye to his one and a half decade old career.
