MS Dhoni retirement: Legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne was recently vocal about MS Dhoni’s retirement from cricket.
Former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s retirement from international cricket was doing the rounds last year when the legendary cricketer looked out-of-sorts in ODIs.
Having scored 327 runs in nine matches at an average of 81.75 and a strike rate of 78.22 including four half-centuries in 2019, Dhoni has answered his critics in a fitting manner this year.
Having said that, even a brief spree of poor returns will again raise voices of the 37-year old cricketer needing to retire from international cricket.
MS Dhoni retirement
Legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne has become the latest high-profile personality to opine on the right time for Dhoni to hang his boots from international cricket. “[MS] Dhoni can retire whenever he wants because he has been that good,” Warne was quoted as saying in an interview with IANS.
Furthermore, Warne expressed surprise at people questioning Dhoni’s place in the Indian squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Considering Dhoni to be the apt person to take a call on his retirement, Warne sounded unconcerned about the same.
“MS Dhoni has been a terrific servant for Indian cricket, he has given his everything to Indian cricket. I can’t believe some people questioned that MS shouldn’t have been there for the World Cup. The thing about retirement is that it is better they say why are you than why don’t you.
“Dhoni is the only person who knows when the right time is and as a player you know. And whether that is after the World Cup or five years after the tournament he will know when the right time is,” Warne added.
