The cricketing world was shocked when MS Dhoni announced his retirement from Test cricket after the Boxing Day Test draw against Australia in Melbourne on December 30, 2014. Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of the Indian team, recalled the moment on Sunday. Ravi Shastri said that no one in the team knew about Dhoni’s decision.
He explained that Dhoni had decided to retire knowing that Virat Kohli was ready to take over the captaincy. He is waiting for the right time to make that statement because he knows how hard his body can work.
He wanted to pursue his white-ball career. That is why MS did not have a second thought, ”said Shastri. “It came as a surprise to hear Dhoni say in Melbourne that he was saying goodbye to Test cricket. He usually comes to me and Ravi Bhai I have to talk to the boys’ said. ‘Sure’ I said. So I thought he would say something. We drew the great game we batted on the last day. ” Ravi Shastri remembered the things of the day.
