MS Dhoni Retires from Test Cricket, Won't Play Sydney Test

It is surprising, but it is true that Mahendra Singh Dhoni has made the decision to retire from test cricket. Mahendra Singh Dhoni who led the Indian ODI and Test team for good number of years has announced his retirement. He won't be playing the 4th test match against Australia and Virat Kohli will be the captain for it. Many people wanted Dhoni to play the last test match, but it seems that Dhoni didn't want to. May be he wanted Naman Ojha or Saha to get the chance to play in the last test match.

 India was able to achieve 1st rank in international test cricket under Dhoni's captaincy. Even if Dhoni is leaving test cricket, he is going to stay in the ODI and t20 team. From now Virat Kohli is going to be the captain of test team, but Dhoni will still be the captain for ODI as well as T20. It will be interesting to see how Virat Kohli will lead India in test cricket and what type of changes he will bring.

MS Dhoni Retires from Test Cricket

 Loss in England and now in Australia may be one of the reasons for Dhoni making this decision. Another reason could be that Dhoni likes to play ODI and t20 more than test cricket. Some people are even saying that Dhoni wants to concentrate on ODI as the world cup is very near.

 Dhoni's Test Record

 Mahendra Singh Dhoni started playing test cricket from the year 2005. He played 90 test matches. He scored 4876 runs in test cricket. Some people wanted him to at least complete 5000 runs before announcing his retirement. He averaged 38.09 in test cricket and his best score is 224 runs. Some people were surprised that Dhoni didn't think about reaching the target of 100 test matches. Know more about MS Dhoni's life and achievements.

 Some comments made by the fans and other cricketers after Dhoni announced retirement clearly showed that people wanted Dhoni to continue playing test cricket. Some even said that it would have been better if Dhoni had given up captaincy, but not made the decision of retiring from test cricket.

 We just hope that Mahendra Singh Dhoni will keep playing ODI as well as T20 for India for many more years. We all should respect the decision which Dhoni has made for himself. Sydney test match starts from 6th January and we all will definitely miss MS Dhoni, but may definitely like to see how Virat Kohli will handle the test cricket pressure.
