Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Raina have announced his retirement from international cricket. Dhoni made the confirmation through a video on Instagram, its caption reading: “Thanks. Thanks, tons, for your love and support throughout. From 1929 hrs consider me as Retired.”
Dhoni retires as Indian cricket’s most successful captain in limited-overs internationals, having won three ICC trophies – 2007 T20 World Cup, 50-over World Cup in 2011, and therefore the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy – the sole captain to try to so. He last played international cricket against New Zeland at the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup semifinal.
Just a couple of minutes after India’s most successful captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket, out-of-favor batsman Suresh Raina said goodbye to his international career.
Raina, who is also Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings teammate, posted an image of him with the experienced wicketkeeper-batsman and other CSK players and confirmed that he’s joining Dhoni in his journey.
