Former captain and veteran wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni, 39, who has won two World Cups for India, has said goodbye to international cricket.

  • Dhoni made his international debut in December 2004 by playing ODIs.
  • World Cup semi-final (9-10 July 2019) was his last ODI match.

Dhoni played his last Test match for India in December 2014 against Australia in Melbourne. Apart from this, Dhoni played his last T20 International against Australia in Bengaluru in February 2019, while the World Cup semi-final (9-10 July 2019) was his last One Day International.

Born on 7 July 1981, the effect of his growing age was beginning to be seen in the batting of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Dhoni had to fall prey to criticism for his slow batting. After the World Cup, Team India went on the West Indies tour, but Dhoni spent 15 days in Kashmir with the Territorial Army Unit during this period. He was posted in Kashmir from 31 July to 15 August.

Dhoni is the only captain in world cricket who has won three major ICC trophies. Under Dhonis captaincy, Team India has won the title of ICC World T20 (2007), Cricket World Cup (2011) and ICC Champions Trophy (2013). Apart from this, India became number-1 in Tests for the first time in 2009.
