The country was shocked when late Wednesday evening Mahendra Singh Dhoni announced his retirement from the captaincy of limited over formats – T20 and ODIs. Many congratulated Dhoni on his glorious captaincy career. Senior journalists, cricketers, and fans just wrote their hearts out for Dhoni, India’s most successful captain.
Capturing some of those memorable moments from Dhoni’s last day at the office, the official account of the Indian Cricket Team posted a video on social media on Wednesday.
Dhoni’s day at the Brabourne Stadium had plenty of moments that he would stay in his memory for years to come. The Ranchi born batsman had the eyes of the fans even as he took to the field during practice sessions. Then on the day of the match, he would step up and be greeted with loud chants of ‘Dhoni! Dhoni!’ by capacity crowd.
During his knock of 68 runs from 40 balls, he smacked Chris Woakes for 22 runs in the final over of the inning. In this period, he would see a fan come down from the stands and touch his feet.

While Dhoni’s knock was not enough to help India defeat England, it capped an entertaining evening for the fans, who turned out in numbers to watch the India skipper play his last match as a captain in India colours.
