ICC World Cup 2019: MS Dhoni Hints at Retirement, Shares His Paintings
MS Dhoni on Monday has shared a video on social media about his childhood dream of becoming a painter. He mentioned in his video about his plans for post-retirement that raised eyebrows over his possibly last World Cup. Meanwhile, the ICC World Cup 2019 will begin on May 30 in London.
Dhoni displayed some of his paintings in the shot video giving a subtle hint about his retirement from cricket after the forthcoming ICC World Cup 2019.
Dhoni said in a video, “I wanted to share a secret with all of you. Right from childhood I always wanted to become an artist, I have played a lot of cricket, so I decided it’s time for me now to take up what I wanted so I have made a few paintings.”
The 37-year-old Indian wicketkeeper is two-time World Cup-winning champion. And now, he is set to travel to the United Kingdom (UK) to play for the team in his possibly last world cup tournament.

Dhoni displayed three of his paintings in the video, the first one being a landscape drawing. Whereas he described the second one as ‘something which can become a mode of transport in future.’

It was the third one, though, that was his favourite. He said that the painting is a replica of him while batting ins the Indian Premier League (IPL) wearing Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) jersey. He shared the painting calling it as his self-portrait whilst bat in the air.
Dhoni also said that soon he would be holding an exhibition of his paintings and asked suggestions and advice from his fans.
With a gain of 10,500 runs from 341 ODI games, Dhoni is one of the other Indian cricketers to make it to the list of 10,000 runs in ODIs. He has 10 centuries and 71 fifties to his name. Dhoni retired from Test Cricket in 2014.
Amidst all this, India is ready for the upcoming showpiece event and will be entering as one of the favourites in the WC. The Virat Kohli-led team will start its campaign against South Africa on June 5 at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.
