MS Dhoni Retires From Blues, Not From Our Hearts; Fans Start Missing Former Captain
MS Dhoni today declared his retirement in a very unique way. However, it came as a shock to his fans who have already started missing him. The former Indian captain in his message penned, “Thanks. Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout. From 1929 hrs consider me as Retired.”
The simplicity with which Mahi decided to quit international cricket touched the heart. Additionally, the song that accompanies his Insta post says a lot about his thoughts, choices, and his class. The title song from Amitabh Bachchan’s Kabhi Kabhi runs in the background. On the other hand, the video clip shows a few glimpses of Dhoni’s cricketing career. In the end, the voiceover of the Don actor reveals how a person needs to leave his place once the time is over and make way for the new.
However, for those who followed MS the choice of Kabhi Kabhi song is not at all surprising. Even earlier in one of his interviews, the former skipper of India stated the relevance of these lines penned by Sahir Ludhianvi to his life.
You have always been my most favourite..not just cos you played well..but also cos you are such a humble person..if we lost u said “we have to play better” if we won you had that small smile on ur face..it was like “abhi mahi ayega aur theek kardega match”
We will miss you #Dhoni pic.twitter.com/q0UopkcaBq

Then – "I am on National Duty, Everything else can wait "
