Since the day I have started watching cricket, it has always been you. A long haired, hard hitting guy who would smash sixes of the ground, create magic behind the stumps.
Watching you hit a six has been the most beautiful dream that ever came true.
From my wallpaper to my keyboard background it's just you. I have always been this fan girl. From writing poems about you to craving for a 7 jersey.
From all my passcodes to all my newspaper cuttings, it's always been you.
I know you had your flaws too but your contribution to the country is undeniable.
I knew my hero has aged, it pained to not see you smash those helicopter shots. It pains more when you walk away and that day is finally here.
Shouldering responsibilities of a national team with such high hopes is not easy. Taking criticisms with a smile is not easy. Sacrificing a lot and still being called selfish is not easy. Giving every possible trophy and still being questioned about captaincy is not easy.
Being my hero isn't easy.
Being Mahendra Singh Dhoni is never easy. And some people will realise your worth now hopefully. Because India will never find a replacement to you.
And I wish the inevitable could be stopped because it's just not you walking away, it's so much more. Raina walked away with you, well that was always known to me. My heart breaks to not you see you in the blues anymore. All the chapters from my childhood cricket book are now torn off as you walk away.
I always knew this day was near, but nothing could hold back the agony I feel after hearing your retirement. I hope you have a happy life ahead, the only thing that gives me a little smile is IPL, watching you not play at all someday would surely leave me into tears.
You will always be missed my captain, my hero.
An ardent fan.#mahi #msretired #mahiretires #dhoni #dearmahi #retirement #msretires #retirementfrominternationalcricket #mahi7781 @mahi7781 #chennaiipl #icc #rainaretires #ipl #cricketlove #dhonifan #thala #thaladhoni #ms7 #msdhoni #dhoni7 #dhonism #thalafans #sad #msdhoniofficial #sakshidhoni @chennaiipl @icc #cricketcries #mahiretired #15august #dhoniaddicts #msdhoni #letterstocharacters
