Star Indian cricketer MS Dhoni has announced his retirement through his official Instagram handle on Saturday, 15 August.
The former Indian cricket team captain has posted a compilation of pictures throughout his career in the form of a video with a heartfelt caption which reads, “Thanks. Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout. From 1929 hrs consider me as retired.”
Dhoni had last played for India during their 2019 World Cup semi-final exit against New Zealand last year and has been out of the Indian team since then.
