India’s three-match ODI series against England ended with an eight-wicket defeat at Headingley in Leeds. While people were focusing on England winning the series, an otherwise innocuous act of MS Dhoni taking the ball from umpire created rumors that he is thinking of retirement from the ODI format.
Eoin Morgan and Joe Root made England team win comfortably and they ended India’s winning run in bilateral ODI series going back to 2016. With that, it broke India’s unbeaten streak of winning nine ODI series and also resulted in Kohli losing his first 50-over series as captain. But, beyond that one thing that has become the news headlines across the internet is the act by MS Dhoni

The incident took place when the teams walked back to the dressing room, Dhoni was spotted taking the match ball from the umpires which is likely to have created retirement speculations in the minds of the fans. It is worth reminding that when MS Dhoni played his last Test match, against Australia in 2014, he had taken the stumps with him despite the match ending in a draw.
Usually, players take the stump with them on a memorable occasion or a win. So, after this incident from the third ODI against England, it seems that it can be the last ODI series for MS Dhoni.
