World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket on this day two years ago (2020). Dhoni decided to stop playing international cricket at 7:29 PM IST on August 15, 2020. The captain of the team that won the 2011 World Cup afterwards produced a video on Instagram outlining all the highs and lows of his career to convey his decision to retire. In a message posted to Instagram, he expressed his appreciation for everyone’s love and support. As of 1929 UTC, please consider me retired.
The well-known song “Mai Pal Do Pal Ka Shayar Hu” from Amitabh Bachchan’s “Kabhie Kabhie” served as the background music for Dhoni’s retirement announcement video. So the painful 2019 World Cup semi-final loss to New Zealand and the wicketkeeper-decision batter’s choice to highlight all the worst moments of his cricket career are what made the movie famous.
Fans will never forget Dhoni’s unflappable manner and his ability to keep his team in close games. So, in a 2005 international game played in Visakhapatnam, the wicketkeeper scored his first century against Pakistan. Dhoni thus took the field in his inaugural ODI match against Bangladesh in 2004. He played poorly, scoring just 19 runs throughout the course of the three-match series.
In 350 ODIs, Dhoni’s highest score was 183 against Sri Lanka. The title “Captain Cool” was given to him since he is still the only captain to have won every significant ICC prize. So in August 2020, the wicketkeeper-batter announced his retirement from the international competition.
Dhoni was renowned for keeping his composure under duress and exhibiting outstanding field leadership while competing in the IPL and other international competitions. He has therefore established himself as one of the best wicketkeepers in the world throughout the years.
So he announced his retirement from tests in December 2014. After playing in 90 games and scoring 4,876 runs at an average of 38.09, he concluded his Test career. In 2017, Virat Kohli was appointed captain for the white-ball formats.
