After the infamous run-out leading to India’s exit from the World Cup 2019, MS Dhoni has not played international cricket. In fact, in all likelihood, one of the greatest finishers the game has ever seen has finished his share of international matches for the country. But why is he not announcing the same in so many words?

We get so used to see our sporting heroes during live sporting action on the field of play that such images are difficult even to be visualized when they are in the peak of their careers. India’s most successful captain MS Dhoni is yet to formally announce his retirement. But, these visuals in the times of the lockdown are gentle reminders of the process leading to the fading of one of our greatest legends from the cricketing scene.

Much before he played for India, the conventionalists had numerous questions for him? How can anyone from Jharkhand make it to the national team? You can hardly remember a name from Jharkhand or for that matter from erstwhile Bihar making to the Indian team? It’s fine that he has got big-hitting abilities, but what about his unconventional technique, both before and behind the wicket?

In a team where Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh were perceived as leaders in waiting, who would have thought of MS Dhoni, who didn’t even have the experience of leading the first-class team, being the captain of the Indian cricket team. And, from there, he goes on to become the most successful captain ever of the Indian team. Even his alliance with Chennai Super King in the Indian Premier League was thought to be unnatural and unconventional when it all started.

When MS Dhoni decided to retire from captaincy and Test cricket as a whole in the middle of an overseas Test series in Australia, the conventionalists were taken aback. How can he do this? Naturally, the player, who throughout his career refused to follow the script of the conventionalists, will not like to exit as per the routes defined by them?
