India vs Australia 2020: BCCI Updates Twitter Cover in Honour of Freshly Retired MS Dhoni

It was an emotional moment for former India skipper MS Dhoni fans as this time their favourite player would not be a part of the tour. However, the sentiments were equally strong from the Board’s end. Dhoni was paid a special tribute by the BCCI on social media. To honour the legendary wicketkeeper, the BCCI official Twitter changed the cover picture. The new photo shows a smiling Dhoni in blue, with a message from the cricket fraternity that reads, “#ThankYouMSDhoni.”


This is the first time when Indian team will be travelling sans MS Dhoni post his retirement announcement on August 15. Dhoni brought an end to his illustrious international cricketing career on Indian Independence Day 2020. He declared he is ready to hang his boots from the longer formats. When India toured Australia two years back, Dhoni was a part of both the ODI and T20 squads.
