MS Dhoni is well-known for his astute captaincy, wicketkeeping, batting traits, swift stumping, quick running between the wickets, last ball six, helicopter shots, ICC trophies and so on. His contribution to Indian cricket is so good that it cannot be put in words.
MS Dhoni has 3 ICC trophies as a captain – ICC World Cup 2007, ICC World Cup 2011 and ICC Champions Trophy 2013, the only captain in the history of the sport to do so. Even after giving up international captaincy on January 4, 2017, he still contributed to the team as a wicketkeeper-batsman.
Dhoni’s last ever international appearance came against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-final. He retired from all forms of international cricket on August 15, 2020. The news was confirmed by MS Dhoni himself through the Instagram post. MS Dhoni has represented India 90 Tests, 350 ODIs and 98 T20Is.
The down-to-earth personality is a huge inspiration to all cricket followers. He has been actively applying his skills and expressing himself in the Indian Premier League. MS Dhoni will be leading Chennai Super Kings in the sixteenth edition of the Indian Premier League.
MS Dhoni reveals his post-retirement plans:
The good thing is that I do collect a lot of stumps but the bad one has I don’t put a mark as to which match they were from. So, after I retire I’ll watch the videos of all my matches, look closely at the sponsor’s logos on the stumps and figure out which match a stump belongs to. It will be my post-cricket pass time!”
