Dhoni triggers retirement talk

TOUGH TIMES: India's Mahendra Singh Dhoni struggled in the just concluded ODI series against England. AFP

Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s future has once again become a fodder for speculation after the talismanic but currently off-colour former India skipper sought the match ball at the end of the lost third ODI against England here.

The 37-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman was seen seeking the ball from umpires as players left the ground after India lost by eight wickets last night to go down 1-2 in the series.

The act was an unusual one for Dhoni, who was more known for collecting stumps after winning matches when he was captain. The 30-second clip went viral on social media and accompanying it were questions on whether the World Cup-winning skipper had dropped a hint at retirement.
