MSD to Retire from T20 Cricket? Dhoni requested Umpires for this after Last Match

Social media went abuzz with rumours of MS Dhoni’s retirement from limited-overs cricket after India’s eight-wicket defeat to England in the series decider at Leeds on Tuesday, July 17.

As the teams were heading back to the dressing room, Dhoni requested the umpires for the match ball. The former captain’s passing act gave rise to plenty of speculations about a possible retirement.

Dhoni’s poor form with the bat coupled India’s inability to overcome middle order woes led to fans coming up with such conjectures.

The 37-year-old has not been able to convert his rich Indian Premier League (IPL) form at the international level in the ongoing tour. He was severely criticised for his slow knock (59-ball 37) during India’s 86 run defeat to England at the Lord’s.

The wicketkeeper-batsman came up with another insipid batting show on Tuesday as he used up quite a lot of balls at Leeds before failing to go big towards the end of the Indian innings.

A Twitter user even posted a photo of Dhoni walking off with a stump during his last Test at Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2014. The former India captain had made an unforeseen announcement about his retirement from the longest format of the game in the middle of a four-Test series in Australia.
