While the whole nation was celebrating its 74th year of independence, MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina decided to cut short the joy of millions of cricket fans by announcing their retirements from international cricket on the same day. The announcements came as a painful double whammy for the cricketing world to fathom.


Both players share a great camaraderie on and off the field. Raina has played for India on 153 occasions under Dhoni’s leadership.

“An experience of a lifetime. Playing with you has been an honour. So many learnings on and off the field.Thank you for all the guidance,you helped me became a better cricketer and improved my game.Cherish all the moments together and will miss you. Best wishes @msdhoni,” wrote Kuldeep.

You have been my idol, mentor and my elder brother. Congratulations on the wonderful career. Wishing you nothing but the best. @ImRaina bhai”.



Meanwhile, the other leggie, Yuzvendra Chahal, wished good luck to the former Indian skipper for his second innings of the life.

“Mahi bhai you have given me and billions of people memories that we can never forget. You’re not just an Inspiration but you’re an emotion felt and dealt by every audience of this game. It was an honour playing alongside you. Thank you & all the best for your 2nd innings,” tweeted Yuzi, as he is popularly known.

“One of the most passionate and vibrant guys I have ever played with. Good luck on the new innings Raina bhai @ImRaina,” Chahal tweeted for Raina.
