“Sir you are still young and fit, keep playing for few more years,” Young Pakistani fast bowler urges MS Dhoni to not retire in near future

Shahnawaz Dahani is one of the young emerging fast bowlers of Pakistan cricket and has already played a few matches for Pakistan

The young Pakistani fast bowler Shahnawaz Dahani has urged the former Indian captain, MS Dhoni, on his 41st birthday to keep playing and keep entertaining his fans for a few more years.

MSD already retired from international cricket two years ago, but since then, he has played three seasons of IPL, one of which was a delayed season, and he has already confirmed that he will play another season of IPL as well.

Shahnawaz Dahani, who now plays for Pakistan national cricket team after making his name in PSL, is a huge fan of Dhoni right since his childhood days and in his Twitter post today, he called MSD his role model and inspiration.

Dahan and MSD had a brief interaction during the T20 World Cup in UAE last year where Dahani was a part of the Pakistan back-ups and MSD was the mentor of the Indian team.

MS Dhoni had told Shahnawaz Dahani last year in UAE that he is getting old now

Revealing his conversation with Dhoni later, Shahnawaz Dahani had said in the Pakistani media that when he told Dhoni he was still looking very fit even after his international retirement, Dhoni didn’t agree and said that he is getting old now.

Dahan reiterated the same sentiments in his Twitter post again today and urged Dhoni not to retire from IPL and keep playing.

MS Dhoni had passed on the captaincy baton of CSK to Ravindra Jadeja at the start of the last IPL, but he took it back mid-way through the tournament, as captaincy was affecting Jadeja’s performance.

Now, it’s almost certain that Dhoni will captain CSK in the next IPL season and will retire probably after playing a couple of matches at CSK’s home ground Chepauk. IPL is expected to get back to its home and away format next year and the matches won’t be limited to certain venues, as was the case in the last three seasons.


I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
