BCCI termed his Journey “End Of A Era”
“It is the end of an era. What a player he has been for the country and world cricket. His leadership
qualities have been something which will be hard to match, especially in the shorter format of the game. His batting in one-day cricket in his early stages made the world stand up and notice his flair and sheer
natural brilliance. Every good thing comes to an end and this has been an absolutely brilliant one. He has set the standards for the wicketkeepers to come and make a mark for the country. He will finish with no
regrets on the field. An outstanding career; I wish him the best in life.”
Jay Shah, secretary, BCCI, said, “MS Dhoni is one of the greats of the modern era. I understand it’s a
personal decision and we respect that. ‘Mahi’ as we all fondly refer to him, has had an exceptional career
in international cricket. His captaincy has been both inspiring and commendable. He is leaving the game
richer from the time he joined. I wish him all the very best for IPL and his future endeavours.”
