The social media platform Twitter on Wednesday was taken by storm when a hashtag ‘#Dhoniretires’ began to trend. The fans lost their cool but to their relief, there no such news as yet.

Dhoni has been one of the most successful captains in the world. He has led India to World T20 win in 2007, World Cup win in 2011, and Champions Trophy win in 2013 as a skipper.

The aggressive-right handed batsman’s role became more significant after he led the Men in Blue to a winning triumph in the World T20 2007. India won the final against arch-rivals Pakistan in South Africa. But his role was an important one because India had struggled a lot earlier that year.

Their performance in the ICC World Cup 2007 before the World T20 was dismal. They were eliminated in the first round after losing to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

But Dhoni did turn the fortunes for the Indian team. He won the World T20 and then led the side to the famous win in the CB series in Australia.

He was slated to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) but the lockdown has forced an indefinite postpone on the cash-rich league. Dhoni has been out of the Indian team since their exit from World Cup 2019 after losing the semi-final to New Zealand. He missed the recent tour to New Zealand while he was also not there in the squad for South Africa ODIs. He was earlier omitted from the list of BCCI contracted players.
