As MS Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket, the cricketing fraternity exploded over social media. Admittedly, MS Dhoni himself sent the message of his retirement via his official Instagram handle. Former Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar was one of those, who reacted and thanked the veteran for his unprecedented contributions to Indian cricket.

It was under MS Dhoni’s leadership that Sachin Tendulkar’s desire to win a World Cup for India was met. In 2011, India lifted the World Cup as Sachin’s dream of two decades got fulfilled. The men in blue beat Sri Lanka in Mumbai by six wickets to lift the World Cup for the second time and Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni were the chief architects of it. After the victory, the 47-year old admitted that Dhoni is the best captain that he has played under.

Sachin Tendulkar took to his official Twitter handle and hailed his unparalleled contribution to the Indian cricket. He named the victory of the 2011 World Cup as the best moment with the keeper-batsman. He concluded by wishing all the best for his future endeavours and the second innings of his life.

Below is Sachin’s tweet dedicated to MS Dhoni:

Since playing his last international game back in July 2019, MS Dhoni’s future became a massive subject of discussion. He scored a fighting half-century against New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup semi-final, but could not be successful in dragging his side over the finish line. Dhoni took a sabbatical, serving the Indian army while also participating in some training drills.

However, the 39-year old kept mum about his international future. Nevertheless, the good news is fans will get to see him in the upcoming IPL season staged in the UAE, captaining the Chennai Super Kings. He calls time after donning the national colours in 90 Tests, 350 ODIs, and 98 T20Is from 2004-2019.
