It is an end of an era for the Indian cricket. He gave us a memorable decade of international trophies including the 2007 T20 World Cup, the 2011 World Cup which made every Indian proud. the Champions trophy, ranking number one in the test rankings, and many more. If there was one reason, we and many others, missed their work to watch every match from the very first ball to the last, it was the Man himself. His calmness, his attitude towards his teammates, his out of the box decisions, were all a treat to watch.

He is the most successful captain that the country has ever had, the player who has captained the most international matches. Mahi, Thank you for the two world cups. Thank you for the most number of victories as an Indian captain!

India produces a great Batman in each generation. First it was Gavaskar then came Sachin followed Kohli but we have never produced a true leader like Dhoni. We are sure India will continue to produce quality batsman in future but we are not sure we will produce a player with leadership qualities of Dhoni.

Let them say we lived in the time of MAHENDRA SINGH DHONI.
