Former India skipper MS Dhoni has finally brought an end to speculation regarding his future in international cricket by announcing his retirement in an Instagram post on Saturday.
"Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout.from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired," Dhoni wrote in his social media post alongside a video containing various pictures of his time spent in the national side.
Although Dhoni has seemingly bowed out of international cricket, he continues to be involved in the Indian Premier League as he will be leading Chennai Super Kings in the forthcoming season in the UAE.
Considered to be one of the finest captains in the sport, Dhoni led India to three major ICC trophies - the World T20, the World Cup and the Champions Trophy.
Dhoni, who last represented India during their 2019 World Cup semi-final defeat to New Zealand, witnessed a plethora of high points in his career including the iconic winning hit off Nuwan Kulasekara in the 2011 World Cup final in front of a jam-packed Wankhede Stadium.
