MS Dhoni, without a doubt, is the most successful captain to have led the Indian Cricket team. He was responsible for India winning all of the three major ICC trophies in his reign as the captain. He first won the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup in 2007, and then went on to win the 2011 World Cup played in India. Dhoni completed his ICC trophy collection with a win in the 2013 Champions Trophy.
However, with such a spectacular leadership stint, disagreements with teammates are natural. Some of these may have resulted in their careers being ended. Here are the cricketers who blamed MS Dhoni for their retirement.
Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh had raised questions to the Indian captain when he was dropped out of the team, but did not get any response. He said he never got any explanation for him being dropped out. “I tried to ask the captain why, but I wasn’t given a reason. I realised there is no point in me asking for the reason for this treatment, and who is behind it because if you keep asking and no one replies, then it’s better to leave it,” Bhajji said.
While the 41-year-old last played for India in 2016, he announced his retirement from all forms of the game in 2021. In the meantime, the veteran cricketer continued to play in the Indian T20 League, but retired after he was unable to make his team’s playing XI.
