While many were demanding veteran batsman MS Dhoni to resign after India got batted away from the semi-finals, Indian iconic singer Lata Mangeshkar has urged him to take back his decision.

In a tweet, Lata Mangeshkar requested Dhoni to not even think about seeking retirement as the country needs him.

“Namaskar MS Dhoni ji. Aaj Kal main sun rahi hun ke Aap retire hona chahte hain.Kripaya aap aisa mat sochiye.Desh ko aap ke khel ki zaroorat hai aur ye meri bhi request hai ki Retirement ka vichar bhi aap mann mein mat [email protected]” [I am hearing that you want to retire. Please don’t think like that. The country needs you. I request you to not entertain thoughts of retirement.],” read the tweet.

The singer even encouraged the Indian team after their defeat and dedicated the song Akash Ke Us Paar Bhi by Gulzar to the boys

She wrote, “Kal bhalehi hum jeet na paaye ho lekin hum haare nahi hain.Gulzar sahab ka cricket ke liye likha hua ye geet main hamari team ko dedicate karti hun (We might not have been able to win yesterday, but we have not lost. I dedicate this song by Gulzar sahab to our team).”

Part of social media has also been supporting and lauding the 38-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman’s innings in yesterday’s match with trends like #ThankYouDhoni.

However, Virat Kohli revealed during a media interaction that MS Dhoni has not spoken to them about retirement.”
