However, Hemant Soren wants MS Dhoni to don the famous blue jersey of the Indian team one more time and play a farewell game. Moments after the legendary cricketer announced his decision, Mr Soren took to Twitter to express his desire of seeing MS Dhoni play for India one more time. He urged the BCCI to conduct the match in MS Dhoni’s hometown Ranchi.

“The man who gave the country and Jharkhand several moments of pride and joy has retired from international cricket today. We won’t be able to see Jharkhand’s beloved son Mahi in the blue jersey again,” wrote Soren before adding:

“However, the countrymen’s hearts are not filled yet. I believe there should be a farewell match for Mahi in Ranchi which will be witnessed by the entire world.

“I appeal to the BCCI to conduct a farewell match for Mahi,” he added.

One of the greats:

He finishes his ODI career with a staggering 10,773 runs at an average of 50.57 in ODIs. MS Dhoni also has 229 ODI sixes – the most for an Indian batsman. In T20Is, Dhoni played 98 games, scoring 1617 runs at a strike rate of 126.13.
