“He was wearing his Test match jersey the entire night, shed a few tears as well” says R Ashwin


Ravichandran Ashwin recalled the moments of Dhoni’s retirement from the test matches (2014). He shared a video on his youtube channel which mentioned the time spent and memories lived with Captain Cool. Speaking about MS Dhoni announcing his retirement from Tests in 2014, Ashwin said that the night was an emotional sight to see as MS Dhoni didn’t take off his jersey and also shed tears missing the game.

“I remember when he retired from Test cricket in 2014, I was batting with him to save the match in Melbourne,” Ashwin said in the video.”But once we lost, he simply picked up a stump and walked off saying he’s done. It was quite an emotional moment for him. Ishant Sharma, Suresh Raina and I were sitting in his room that evening. He was still wearing his Test match jersey through the entire night and he shed a few tears as well,” he added.

The video was posted after the announcement of the former India captain’s retirement from international cricket. MS Dhoni would not be seen further in ODI, T20 and test matches, but will make his magical presence in Indian Premier League.
