‘MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina announce their retirement from international cricket’
MS Dhoni, Arguably the greatest Indian cricketer of all time announced his retirement from international cricket on Saturday. The former Indian captain shocked all his fans when he decided to call it a day and announced his decision on social media. Suresh Raina followed his footsteps and announced his retirement on social media just like MS Dhoni. Raina’s retirement post came barely a few minutes after MS Dhoni’s retirement post. Both the CSK players are all set to feature in the upcoming IPL 2020 in the UAE.
Dhoni last played an international game on July 2019 in the Cricket World Cup 2019. Mahendra Singh Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket on Saturday (August 15) via an Instagram post “Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout. From 1929 hrs consider me as Retired”, read his post of the formal announcement.
MS Dhoni has been one of India’s greatest captains, he led India through its most successful era and has the 2007 T20 WC, 2011 ODI World Cup, and 2013 Champions Trophy in his trophy cabinet. He also became the first Indian Test captain to lead India to the number 1 spot in the ICC Test ranking. He had earlier retired from Tests in 2014 and then left captaincy in 2017 and now MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina announce their retirement from international cricket.
There’s no doubt that MS Dhoni would go down as the greatest Indian captain, keeper and finisher. The ‘Captain Cool’ also has a large fanbase and is one of the most followed cricketers on social media. Dhoni is unarguably one of the greatest players in the history of cricket and international cricket won’t be the same without him.
Mere minutes after Dhoni announced his retirement, it was Suresh Raina who announced that he too
would be retiring. The CSK allrounder, like his captain, made it official in an Instagram post. “It was
nothing but lovely playing with you, @mahi7781. With my heart full of pride, I choose to join you on this
journey as MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina announce their retirement. Thank you, India. Jai Hind”, he wrote, shortly after the former India skipper hung up his boots.
