Bringing an end to all the speculations surrounding his future in international cricket, MS Dhoni, on Saturday, announced his retirement from international cricket.
Speculations were rife over his future for more than a year now and the recent turn of events only fuelled the fire. MS Dhoni took an indefinite sabbatical from the game right after the World Cup ended in July last year and has not played a single game since then.
Earlier this year, BCCI also dropped him from the central contracts list but there were still rumours that MS Dhoni would not retire from international cricket. The upcoming edition of the IPL was seen as the tournament which could have paved his way for a comeback in the Indian team.
However, the legendary player, who loves to spring surprises, decided to bring down curtains on his glorious international career ahead of IPL 2020. He will finally return to action next month when the IPL gets underway in UAE from September 19.
