MS Dhoni was seen taking the match ball from the umpires after India lost the third ODI. He took the match ball back with him to the dressing room after India’s defeat in the series-deciding 3rd ODI at Headingley.
The series loss marks this Indian team’s first bilateral series defeat under Virat Kohli. But more than the defeat, there is another reason that has Indian fans worried. Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was seen taking the match ball from the umpires after India lost the third ODI. He took the ball while walking back to the pavillion.
Fans set the Twitter ablaze after watching Dhoni taking the ball from umpire after the conclusion of third and final ODI in Leeds.
Dhoni has joined the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, Kumar Sangakkara, Brian Lara and Sanath Jayasuriya on the elite list.
The 2011 World Cup winning captain is only the second wicketkeeper-batsman to touch the 10000-run mark. Sangakkara was the first designated wicketkeeper-batsman to achieve the landmark.
Under Dhoni’s captaincy, India lifted the 50-over World Cup in 2011 and the World Twenty20 in 2007. Dhoni also led India to the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 in England.
Following Argentina’s loss to Chile in the Copa America final, Lionel Messi was visibly devastated. Not long after the tournament’s closing ceremonies, Messi did an interview with TyC Sports in Argentina where he announced that he would no longer play for the national team.
This comes three days after Messi wrote about his frustration with the Argentine FA. “Once again waiting on a plane to leave for our destination,” Messi wrote on his Instagram. “What a disaster the AFA are. My god!” When asked about the post the next day, Messi said he’d speak to AFA about his concerns after Copa America ended.
But through some combination of his frustrations with losing in another final and dealing with AFA, the world’s greatest player has decided that enough is enough. It’s possible that this decision was made in the heat of the moment, after an emotional defeat, and his fans will be hoping he reconsiders his decision.
The World Cup is two years away, and might be Messi’s final chance to win the tournament while still in the prime of his career.
