Not once, never, can i remember our hearts not pounding, our excitement levels not rising when Dhoni came out to bat. A true game changer.
You made cricket seem simple, almost casual, yet exhilarating. Unexpected. If that’s not genius, I don’t know what is #Dhoni #DhoniRetires

मेरे प्यारे @msdhoni!
ज़िंदगी की असली उड़ान अभी बाक़ी है,
ज़िंदगी के कई इम्तिहान अभी बाक़ी है,
अभी तो नापी है मुट्ठी भर ज़मी हमने,
अभी तो सारा आसमान बाक़ी है!!!
हम भले ही आपको खेल के मैदान में मिस करें! लेकिन हमारे दिलों पर आप हमेशा राज करेंगे।जीते रहो।
आपका फ़िल्मी पिता।???? pic.twitter.com/qdkn1lT0KJ
