“Looking at Dhoni’s calm and cool personality I think the way he announced his retirement, it was kind of expected from him. Dhoni’s milestones and achievements both as a captain and as a player speak themselves. Dhoni has given his heart and soul to team India and it will be hard to say his goodbye but his true fans will respect and accept his decision.” – Varsha Nagre, BCCI Match Referee

A businessman and president of UGA – Amit Vyas says “There is no captain better than Dhoni and India are lucky to have a captain like Dhoni. He deserves a farewell match once things get back to the normal, his fans would love to see him playing his farewell match”.

Mesha Thakkar a teenager girl believes “Dhoni deserved a Tendulkar kind of farewell match. Retirement on social media has caught us all by surprise, this may be because of COVID-19 but if this was so, his retirement could have been proposed at a different time or in a different manner rather than through a social media post. We must appreciate his decision and look on to who our next Dhoni will be”

“Dhoni has nothing more to achieve, Thank you, MS Dhoni, for your contribution to the Indian team.” – Jayesh Shah- senior citizen from Sydney.

Dhoni as a captain achieved everything that a cricket captain at the highest level could dream of. India won the T20 world cup (2007), 50 over’s world cup (2011), Champions trophy (2013) and India was number 1 test team for more than a year under his captainship.
