MS Dhoni calls time on illustrious global career

Suresh Raina has joined MS Dhoni in announcing his global retirement on Saturday evening India time, PTI reports.

Wikipedia already has enough information on the veteran cricketer and at the top of all, it has mentioned Dhoni's major achievements in his career.

Dhoni, who made his worldwide debut in the 2004-05 tour of Bangladesh, last made an appearance in India colours in the semi-final defeat to New Zealand in the 2019 ICC World Cup.

The announcement came a day after he joined his Chennai Super Kings teammates at the side's home base for a short training camp ahead of the players' departure to the UAE next week. Raina also took to his Instagram handle to announce his retirement like Dhoni.

In his 15-year career, Dhoni has scored more than 17,000 worldwide runs in over 570 matches. He made 4,876 runs in 90 Test matches, scoring two centuries and 33 half-centuries.

"I would remember the hitting of that six at the Wankhede Stadium to win that World Cup in 2011". He scored 10,773 runs across 350 one-day global appearances. Soon after the former India captain announced his decision, cricketers and fans flooded social media with heartwarming messages for one of the most successful captains in world cricket. The wicketkeeper-batsman made his ODI debut against Bangladesh in December 2004, a match in which he was run out for a duck.

Suresh Raina said it had been "nothing but lovely" to be in teams with Dhoni as he also announced his departure from the national team on Instagram. With India winning the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 in England, Dhoni became the first and is still the only captain till date to have won all three ICC Trophies.
