DhoniMahendra Singh Dhoni, on Saturday, announced his retirement from all forms of the game to bring down the curtain on a career which saw him become the only skipper to win all three major International Cricket Council (ICC) trophies — the World Cup, the World Twenty20, and the Champions Trophy.

In a post on Instagram on Saturday, Dhoni wrote: “Thanks. Thanks for ur love and support throughout. from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired”

Dhoni had stepped down from ODI captaincy in January 2017 after having retired from Tests on December 30, 2014, in Australia. The 37-year-old from Ranchi led India in 199 ODIs and 72 T20Is. Dhoni, who was named captain in 2007, led India to the top of the world Test rankings and is the only player to captain in more than 50 matches in each of the three formats.

Having made his international debut in 2004, Dhoni rose through the ranks in Indian cricket. After being named the captain of the Twenty20 side in 2007, Dhoni guided India to the inaugural World Twenty20 title in South Africa.

He was eventually named the ODI captain, succeeding Rahul Dravid when he relinquished the post, and then ascended to full-time Test captain once Anil Kumble retired.

Dhoni’s career has had several points of crescendo but the crowning moment came in 2011 when he slammed a power-packed six over widish long-on off a fuller length ball from Nuwan Kulasekara to end India’s arduous 28 year-long waits for a second ODI World Cup.

Chamoli Glacier Burst

Uttarakhand: A glacial burst in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand triggered an avalanche and massive flooding of the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers on Sunday morning, forcing the emergency evacuation of thousands from surrounding areas, and damaging houses and the nearby Rishiganga power project.

Disaster response and management teams have been deployed to conduct search-and-rescue and relief operations. Around 100 to 150 people may have been killed, Uttarakhand Chief Secretary Om Prakash told news agency ANI. Authorities fear hundreds more may still be stuck. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is in Assam to campaign for Assembly polls, tweeted: “India stands with Uttarakhand and the nation prays for everyone’s safety.”

Disaster management teams have been mobilized and hundreds of ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) have been rushed for rescue operations.

SN Pradhan, chief of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), said that teams from the relief force have been moved for search-and-rescue and relief operations in Uttarakhand where a glacial burst has triggered an avalanche. “The glacial burst has taken out a bridge constructed by the Border Road Organisation. Also in the higher reaches, the Rishiganga hydel project also has been damaged,” he said.
