Former India’s captain MS Dhoni has announced his retirement from international cricket on Saturday.

He announced the decision in a post on his official Instagram account.

The 39-year-old was one of the most explosive batsmen to have graced the game.

The Ranchi-born wicketkeeper represented the Men-in-Blue in 538 matches across all formats (90 Test, 350 ODIs and 98 T20Is) in which he amassed 17,266 runs.

His last outing for India came in the semi-final of the last year’s World Cup against New Zealand where he scored a fighting half-century but it wasn’t enough to take the team home.

The wicketkeeper-batsman led India to victories in the 2007 ICC World T20, 2011 World Cup and the 2013 Champions Trophy.
