In a surprising decision, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has announced his retirement from international cricket, who had also retired from Test cricket in 2014.
He has led the Indian cricket team to stunning victories in ICC WT20 in 2017, ICC World Cup in 2011 and ICC Champions Trophy in 2013.
Highlights from MS Dhoni cricketing career
After making a debut in an ODI match against Bangladesh in 2004, MS Dhoni played a test match after a year against Sri Lanka in Chennai.
In 2006, he was a part of India’s first T20 international match played against South Africa.
His most significant mark in international cricket was the ODI played against Pakistan, where he counterattacked their bowling and led the team to victory.
Another iconic moment from his career was winning six against Sri Lanka at Wankhede’s finals, which won India the second World cup after a hiatus of 50 years.
Leaves a rich legacy behind
Though he experienced lows after team India lost in test cricket matches alongside unsuccessful England Australia match tours. Dhoni made a successful comeback after leading India to a successful win in the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy.
Dhoni ends his ODI career gloriously, with 10,783 scored over 350 alongside ten centuries and 73 half-centuries. He has also played 90 test matches and 98 T20Is, making him one of the best captains in Indian cricket.
