Media and the internet are flooded with rumors of Maahi’s retirement. Although there has been no official statement yet, fans of Mahendra Singh Dhoni are afraid that he might just retire after the ICC World Cup of 2019.
As a result, the hashtag ‘#DoNotRetireDhoni’ is trending. People are urging ‘Captain Cool’ not to retire. Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar joined these fans with her tweet that read, “Greetings M S Dhoni ji, I’ve been hearing lately that you plan to retire. Please don’t think like this, the country needs you. I request you not to allow even the thought of retirement to come to your mind.”
The rumors that the former Indian captain is all set to put a full-stop to his illustrious career gathered momentum after India lost to New Zealand in World Cup semi-final match on July 10.
Lata Mangeshkar further left an encouraging note for Team India. Her tweet read, “Although we couldn’t win yesterday, we have not lost. I dedicate this song about cricket, penned by Gulzar sahab to our team.” She shared her 1994 song ‘Akash Ke Us Paar Bhi’, which was composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar.
