New Delhi: No matter how great the journey has been, no matter how big the records, no matter how great the players are, the evening of everyone’s career comes. This is the absolute truth of life. But Dhoni himself decided the date, time and place of departure.
This time too, Captain Cool surprised the world by making a sudden decision. Dhoni posted on his Instagram post a four-minute video with the pictures of his cricket life on the song ‘Main Pal Do Pal’, I wrote and wrote- ‘Many thanks for the love and support from all of you. I should be considered retired from today after 7:29 pm.’
After Dhoni’s post, his wife Sakshi Dhoni wrote, with this picture of Mahi watching the evening, ‘You should be proud of what you have achieved. Congratulations on giving your best to the game. I am proud of your accomplishments and the person you are! I am sure you must have held those tears to say goodbye to your passion.
Wishing you health, happiness and wonderful things ahead! #thankyoumsd#proud

Under his captaincy, Dhoni has named all 3 ICC Trophies which no other captain in the history of cricket has done. T20 World Cup in 2007, ODI World Cup in 2011 and Champions Trophy in 2013. The speciality of Dhoni was that after winning the trophy, he used to youngsters to lead the team, he himself would fall behind. This is the reason that every player in the team tried to give his best for Dhoni.
