Indian skipper MS Dhoni has revealed that he is not going to retire in the near future. During the post match presentation after the 95 run loss to Australia in the Semi-Finals at the SCG, presenter Mark Nicholas asked Indian skipper MS Dhoni about a possible retirement, Dhoni replied I’m 33, I’m still running, still fit. Next year, T20 World Cup, will be time to decide about 2019 or not.
Even Australian skipper Michael Clarke during his turn said I’m sure he (Dhoni) will be, he has a lot of cricket in him.
MS Dhoni announced his retirement from Test cricket after the Boxing Day Test last year and vowed to focus on the ODI format.
When Indian ODI and T20 Dhoni was asked about his legacy he replied cheekily: “You know, frankly for me, it doesn’t really matter. For me every time I turn up, for me what’s important is to do something special so that I can be part of or I can contribute to the win.”
Later when a hindi journalist asked him about retirement plans, Dhoni was quick to reply in his witty style, “Abhi buddha nahi hua hoon.” (In English: I am still not an old man). He then asked media to come up with their own theories.
It was heartning that despite defeat, Dhoni gave the media a very candid chat where he had a moment of cheeky laughter in it as well. His press conference, as always, was full of humor and wit. This PC which came at a time when he has lost world title, it shows great character of man.
