Twitter reacts as Narendra Modi writes a special letter to MS Dhoni

Former Indian team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni suddenly announced his retirement from international cricket on 15th August. Following his footsteps, his teammate and close friend Suresh Raina also decided to hang up his boots.

Both players will now only play in the IPL for Chennai Super Kings. MS Dhoni had achieved unbelievable records to his name in international cricket. He led the Indian team to the T20 World Cup in 2007, ICC World Cup in 2011, and ICC Champions Trophy in 2013.

Speaking of Dhoni’s greatness, many veteran players and cricket fans have urged BCCI to organize a grand farewell match for Dhoni. However, it is unlikely that the Ranchi-based wicket-keeper batsman would consider coming out of retirement only for a farewell match.


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi closely follows sports and he saluted MS Dhoni for his incredible cricketing career by writing a special letter to the former Indian skipper. Modi hoped that the second innings of Dhoni is much more enjoyable for him and his family.

He also highlighted how Dhoni sported different hairstyles throughout his career, but his calm head helped him achieve big things in his profession. Modi felt that this quality should be inculcated by every young man of India.

The honorable Prime Minister then wrote about the 2011 ICC World Cup, where a special innings from Dhoni helped India defeat Sri Lanka. There was also a reference of how 130 Crore people of India believed in Dhoni. Modi also lauded Dhoni because he did not have a good educational background nor he belonged to a rich family. Still, he became a big name in the world.


Lastly, he referred to CSK’s 2018 title win and highlighted how a vintage MS Dhoni spent time in enjoying with his daughter Ziva instead of celebrating the team’s win. Here’s how Twitter reacted to this letter from Modiji to Dhoni.
