Dhoni and Raina call it a Day!Former Indian Skipper M S Dhoni announced his retirement from International Cricket and incidentally made it official via Social media platform. Soon after his announcement, there came another set back to Indian cricket when his long time colleague and former middle-order batsman Suresh Raina too said 'goodbye' to International Cricket. It is not clear whether they would play Domestic cricket but the exit of the great players made their huge fans disappointed. Incidentally both were holding Jersey Nos. 7 and 3 respectively and the Social media started saying they hung up their boots when free India became 73 years old.
Dhoni's contribution to Indian cricket as a player and a captain is marvellous and led India to lift the World Cup in limited overs in 2011 after 1983 WC by Kapil's devils and T-20 World Cup. Raina's performance too can't be under-rated. The left handed batsman was part of the team that won the 2011 ICC World Cup and was instrumental in winning the knock-out matches against Australia and Pakistan. He scored 5615 runs in 226 ODIs and represented India in 18 Test matches and 78 T20 matches.
