The only captain in the world to win ICC ODI, T-20 World Cup and Champions Trophy reported via Instagram post

Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has announced his retirement from international cricket by posting on Instagram on Saturday. The world's only captain to win the ICC ODI and T-20 World Cup, as well as the Champions Trophy, wrote in his post, "Thank you. Thank you for your love and support. Understand me retired from 19:29 (7:29 p.m.)."

Mahi, also known as Captain Total, captained India in 199 ODIs and 72 T20s. He was first named captain of the team in 2007. Under him, India became World No. 1 in Tests.

Dhoni made his Test debut on December 23, 2004 against Bangladesh in Chittagong. Ganguly was the captain at the time. Ganguly sent Dhoni to bat at No. 3 in his place. However, Dhoni flopped in the series. He scored just 19 runs in three ODIs, but became the team's most reliable player in the next series against Pakistan, playing a memorable innings of 148 off 123 balls.

He has played 90 Tests, 350 ODIs and 98 T-20 ODIs. Dhoni has played 90 Tests, 350 ODIs and 98 T-20 matches so far. He has scored 4876, 10773 and 1617 runs respectively.
