Ever since Mahendra Singh Dhoni has stepped down as the limited-overs skipper of Team India, speculations are rife over his career.

The wonder boy from Ranchi, who led India to the 2007 ICC T20 World Cup, 2011 50-over World Cup and the 2013 Champions Trophy, has certainly etched his name among the greats of Indian cricket but his illustrious career is now in its twilight.

One of the finest limited-overs batsmen of all time to don the Indian jersey, the former India skipper has not been at his usual best with the bat in the recent times. He has struggled to time the balls and as a result, he has failed to finish the matches for the team like he did on a consistent basis in the past.

Moreover, the results did not go Dhoni’s way either. India was eliminated in the semifinal stage of both the 50-over World Cup in Australia as well as the World T20 at home last year and with nothing much going his way, Dhoni stepped down as the limited-overs skipper earlier this year.

All these have raised a question over Dhoni’s career, leaving everyone guessing as to how long the legendary skipper will ply his trade in international cricket.

Some are speculating that the 35-year old would bow out of the game after the 2019 World Cup but given Dhoni’s unpredictable nature, no one knows when will he hang up his boot. The right-handed batsman is currently gearing up to play in an ICC event under another captain for the first time in almost a decade and will be keen to do well to help India retain their ICC Champions Trophy title.

Now given Dhoni’s knack of throwing up surprises, he can also wave goodbye to international cricket after the conclusion of the Champions Trophy and so we are taking a look at few reasons that might convince him to hang up his boots.
