At a time when MS Dhoni’s retirement speculations are going wild with each passing day, a hashtag “#DhoniRetires” is trending on the social media platform Twitter. The engagement of the fans of the former India captain added more fuel to the rumour.
The hashtag on the microblogging website aims at Dhoni’s much talked about retirement plans, something the Indian wicket-keeper is yet to address in public.

It is to note that Dhoni, 38, has been on a sabbatical since Indiaâ€™s exit from the World Cup after losing the semi-final clash to New Zealand and since then, talks of his retirement from international cricket have been rife.
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President-elect and former India captain Sourav Ganguly had recently said he will see what MS Dhoni wants, before commenting on whether the wicketkeeper-batsman captain should call it a day or not.
