Virat Kohli, the current Indian captain, took to Twitter on Saturday, to post his heartfelt wished for the legendary MS Dhoni following the latters’ retirement from international cricket.
MS Dhoni, like he did when he announced his Test retirement back in 2014-15, shocked the cricketing folklore on Independence Day when he took to his official Instagram account to draw curtains on his 15-year-old international career.
”Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired’- wrote MS Dhoni
‘The world has seen achievements, I’ve seen the person’- Virat Kohli on MS Dhoni’s retirement
Post Dhoni’s announcement to retire from the game, social media went ablaze with former and current cricketers and millions of Dhoni’s fans post their heartfelt wishes for the legendary Indian wicketkeeper-batsman.
Joining the bandwagon is current Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who posted a beautiful message for his ‘skipper’. Kohli went on to thank Dhoni for the mutual respect and warmth that he had received from the former captain, before tipping his hat to one of the all-time legends.
”Every cricketer has to end his journey one day, but still when someone you’ve gotten to know so closely announces that decision, you feel the emotion much more. What you’ve done for the country will always remain in everyone’s heart. But the mutual respect and warmth I’ve received from you will always stay in mine. The world has seen achievements, I’ve seen the person. Thanks for everything skip. I tip my hat to you 👏🇮🇳 @msdhoni,” Virat Kohli wrote.
