The legend of MS Dhoni grows day by by as the boy from Ranchi plays out what seems like is the beginning of the end of his glorious career. Many commentators have noted that Dhoni received deafening cheers every time he walked out to bat in the ODIs against the Aussies.
While this is by no means a farewell tour for Mahi, the fans realize that one never knows when their icon will call it a day. While we can safely say that Dhoni will play in the 2019 World Cup, there is no guarantee that he will stay any longer.
Dhoni’s sudden retirement from tests was a case in point as the keeper suddenly decided to call it quits in Australia. So one could forgive the fans for behaving like it is indeed one of his last seasons with India.
