Social media exploded with reactions as #DhoniRetires became a top trend on social micro-blogging site Twitter on Wednesday. Former Indian captain's fans soon realised there was no truth behind the rumours and even Sakshi Dhoni once again took to social media to issue a clarification. Since the ICC World Cup semi-final between India and New Zealand, MS Dhoni’s future has been a hot topic of discussion. Dhoni was expected to take a call on his future after the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 but with the tournament postponed for an indefinite period, fans have no other option left but to wait for an official announcement on Dhoni’s future.

Current and former cricketers have also been sharing their views about Dhoni’s retirement. In an exclusive chat with timesnownews.com, former England spinner Monty Panesar explained what would be the magnitude of Dhoni’s retirement for world cricket. Panesar opined that cricket would lose a lot of followers and the impact would be quite similar to what will happen to football when Cristiano Ronaldo hangs up his boots.

“MS Dhoni is the most successful captain Indian captain, unbelievable white-ball cricketer, an excellent wicketkeeper and among top 5 captains. One of the best cricketers we have had. If tomorrow, Cristiano Ronaldo retires, football would lose a lot of fan following. Likewise, if Dhoni retires, it will be of the same magnitude, that’s the kind of following he has,” Panesar, who represented England in 50 Tests and 26 ODIs, said.

Dhoni was a part of the Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) training camp ahead of IPL 2020 but returned back to Ranchi as training camps of all eight franchises were cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Dhoni had also participated in practice matches, along with Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu, where fans turned up in big numbers to watch their Thalaiva entertain them briefly.
