Lata Mangeshkar’s request to Dhoni: Please don’t retire

There were speculations that Dhoni might bid adieu to the global cricket after the conclusion of India's campaign at this year's edition of the marquee event.

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.

Soon, fans started fearing that they might have seen the last of Dhoni as he could announce his retirement in the coming future. He is expected to return to Ranchi after a short break in London itself. But still, Virat Kohli has to answer about Dhoni in every press conference. He refused to share any details and only said, "He has not said anything to us".

While Mahendra Singh Dhoni is constantly facing criticism and his retirement news are making a headline, the legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar came to defend him.
