MS Dhoni Retires From Cricket, Saying ‘Thanks A Lot For Your Love’; Will Play IPL
Dhoni, who made his international debut in 2004, featured in 90 Tests, 350 ODIs and 98 T20 Internationals.
Under his leadership, India won three major ICC tournaments – the 2007 World T20, 2011 World Cup and the Champions Trophy 2013.
Dhoni, who made his ODI debut in December 2004, burst on the scene when he smashed an unbeaten 148 – in his fifth ODI – against Pakistan in Visakhapatnam. Overall, he hit 10,773 runs in the 50-over format, including 10 centuries and 73 fifties. His highest individual score (183*) came against Sri Lanka at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur in 2005.
He took over the ODI captaincy from Rahul Dravid in 2007. It’s still unclear whether Dhoni was the reason behind Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid’s exclusion from the ODI side, the decision did turn out to be a courageous one as India registered their maiden tri-series (involving Australia and Sri Lanka) win Down Under.
