Having played his last game in the 2019 World Cup semi-final, Dhoni, 40, announced his retirement from international cricket in 2018. Apparently, he has a lot of expertise with white-ball strategy and winning crucial ICC tournaments, something his successor hasn’t had.
India’s enigmatic wicketkeeper-batter guided his team to two world titles, including the 2007 T20 World Cup in South Africa, and the 2011 ODI World Cup in India, which were all won by India.
