Team India's ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 came to an end when they fell agonizingly short of New Zealand's 239. MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja staged one of the greatest comeback to take India within touching distance of reaching the finals. They both stitched together for a 116 run partnership for the seventh wicket. As Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni lost their wickets in succession, the Men in Blue were not able to reach the finals.

After India's loss there have been rumors circulating on the internet that it might be time for MS Dhoni to quit International Cricket. While he has played several breathtaking innings in the past, in recent times he has often been criticized for not being able to accelerate in the middle overs. Even in the World Cup, he was under fire for his slow batting against Afghanistan and England. His run-scoring abilities have come down and this has increased the pressure on the batsmen at the other end.

However, Lata Mangashekar, a die-hard cricket fan and one of the legends of music industry has requested MS Dhoni to not retire from international cricket anytime soon. Her tweet read: "Namashkar M S Dhoni ji. Aaj kal main sun rahi hun ke Aap retire hona chahta hein. Kripaya aap aisa mat sochiye. Desh ko aap ke khel ki zaroorat hai aur ye meri bhi request hai ki Retirement ka vichar aap mann mein mat laayiye"

MS Dhoni, who is 38 years old has represented India in 350 ODIs, scoring 10773 runs at an average of 50.58 including 73 half-centuries and 10 centuries. Currently, he is only playing the shorter versions of the game. He called time on his Test career abruptly in 2014.
