Former India skipper MS Dhoni put curtains to his 15 years of international cricket on August 15, 2020. This is the first time the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced a squad after Dhoni’s retirement. In the wake of it, BCCI has paid a massive tribute to the legendary cricketer.
Meanwhile, after a sabbatical which lasted more than a year, MS Dhoni stunned the entire world announcing his retirement. BCCI didn’t have any option either as far as arranging a farewell game was concerned during the times of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, MS Dhoni is currently leading Chennai Super Kings in the ongoing IPL 2020. They had a horrific run in the competition and were the first team to bow out of the competition. On a personal note, Dhoni, who returned to action for the first time since July 2019, and has looked completely out of socks.
In 12 games so far, he has managed to score only 199 runs. More than the runs, it is his poor strike-rate that has invited criticism. He performance sums up Chennai’s run in IPL 2020. They are currently in the last position with only four wins from 12 matches.
Later tonight, they lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders and will be desperate to secure their fifth win. They defeated Delhi Capitals in the last match and will hope to continue their winning run.
