MELBOURNE/MUMBAI: Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Tuesday surprised the cricket world with his sudden announcement of immediate retirement from Test cricket, making way for Virat Kohli to don the mantle of captaincy. Announcement of Dhoni's retirement after the wicketkeeper-batsman had played in 90 Test matches, 60 of them as captain, was made immediately after India lost the current Test series to Australia following a drawn third Test here.
"One of India's greatest Test Captains under whose leadership India became the No. 1 team in the Test Rankings MS Dhoni, has decided to retire from Test Cricket citing the strain of playing all formats of Cricket," the BCCI said in a statement.India, trailing 0-2 in the four-match series after today's draw, would be led by the 26-year-old Kohli in the fourth and final match in Sydney. Kohli has been India's standout performer with the bat in the ongoing series, having scored three hundreds so far.
"Virat Kohli will be the captain of the Indian Team for the Fourth and Final Test against Australia to be played in Sydney from the 6th of January 2015," the BCCI stated. timesofindia.indiatimes.com/top-stories/Mahendra-Singh-Dhoni-retires-from-Test-cricket-former-cricketers-express-surprise-at-his-decision/articleshow/45687573.cms

He should retire from Cricket and run a "matka".

I guess people know what matka means.

Thanks Dhoni. Finally.

Though a belated move, but better late than never.

Despite your clear verbal & oft-repeated expressions of dislike for test cricket, you kept on steering the India team's ship.

The worst overseas test record for any Indian Captain & maximum number of dismissals at a "duck" are qualifications, not to be taken lightly.

IPL & endorsements are the way forward for budding Indian cricket players. Who gives a sh*t about Test cricket ?
