Greatest Finisher announced Retirement from International Cricket

 

“Thanks Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout.from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired,” he wrote on Instagram along with the video showing glimpses of his illustrious career.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, former Indian cricket captain who led Team India to victories in the ICC WT20 (2007), ICC World Cup (2011) and ICC Champions Trophy (2013), has announced his retirement from international cricket.

Dhoni finished with 297 ODI appearances and scoring 10773 runs, including 10 centuries and 72 fifties. In 98 T20Is, Dhoni has scored 1617 runs at an average of 37.60, hitting two fifties.

Dhoni’s ability to read the game along with his brute power, made him a force to be reckoned with pretty soon in the Indian middle-order. Backed by then captain Sourav Ganguly to achieve big things, Dhoni made full use of the opportunity to make his presence felt.

Dhoni’s captaincy touched new heights when India lifted the World Cup in 2011. The innings in the final and the image of the winning shot over long-on along with Ravi Shastri’s commentary will be immortalised and the captain didn’t stop there. In 2013, under him, India won the 2013 Champions Trophy in England, thus, making him the only captain to win all three ICC tournaments.

Dhoni made his international debut in an ODI against Bangladesh in December 2004 and played his maiden Test match almost a year later against Sri Lanka in Chennai. He was part of the team that played India’s first ever T20 international against South Africa in December 2006.

Considering legalizing of Cricket ball-tampering in wake of corona-virus

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic (Corona virus infection), bowlers will no longer be able to spit on a cricket ball, so it may be considered to allow the use of artificial objects to make it shine. It can also be said that ball tampering can now be legalized in cricket. In cricket, bowlers used spit (saliva) to shine the ball, but when cricket starts after the Kovid-19 pandemic, the ICC will have to make some decisions about it.

“The problem posed by the use of saliva to polish the ball is understood to be among the items raised by the ICC”s medical committee to be addressed before cricket can resume, meaning that lateral thinking is required to allow bowlers and teams to continue to find effective ways to shine the ball to help encourage conventional or reverse swing,” the ESPNCricinfo report stated.

The report has stated that administrators are “open to the option of allowing for the use of an agreed artificial substance to polish the ball under the supervision of the umpires”.

Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad said he is in favour of the idea to not use saliva on the ball.
