Former India captain MS Dhoni's retirement has been highly speculated on since the legendary wicketkeeper-batsman took a break from cricket after India's loss to New Zealand in the 2019 ICC World Cup semi-final. Yesterday, speculation and rumours started spreading again as Dhoni's name was missing from the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) annual central contract list. While the exclusion was more technical and does not imply that Dhoni's career is over, fans have been worried about their favourite cricketer's future. So much so, that #DhoniWeNeedYou has been trending on Twitter since Friday morning.

MS Dhoni retired from Test cricket in 2014 and will probably not be a part of the Indian squad for the 2023 ODI World Cup. Coming to the T20 World Cup in October, Dhoni's selection depends on his performances during the IPL. Dhoni will be leading the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020 and will be chasing his fourth IPL trophy with the team.
