No media speculations.
No formal announcements.
No press meet.
No grand goodbye game.
No final speech.
Not even a single clue.
An IGTV video with a classic Hindi song. What a way to say it. Probably the coolest ever. #MSDhoni, for you.

Being a die-hard fan of someone is strange.
Their success feels like your success.
Their failure feels like your failure.
When they are are on merit, it titialtes you.
And when they pause, your life stops too.#MSDhoni pic.twitter.com/QUyFTOUVDn
