BCCI retires MS Dhoni's No. 7 jersey: Reports


Delhi, India: MS Dhoni, India's World Cup-winning captain, is No. The BCCI has decided to retire the iconic jersey number, so no player will be able to wear the number 7.

According to a report that appeared in the Indian Express on Friday, "The Indian Cricket Board, in a tribute to his contribution to the sport, has decided to ‘retire’ the number sported by the World Cup-winning captain."

On August 15, 2020, MS Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket after more than three years. Nevertheless, he continues to participate in franchise cricket and is set to lead Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming Indian Premier League season.

Dhoni led India to historic title victories at both the 2011 ODI World Cup and the inaugural T20 World Cup.

The No. 1 bat was officially retired by the BCCI in 2017. Sachin Tendulkar, a batting legend, wore the number 10 jersey.

According to the report, the BCCI has intimidated the national team into making the decision that no longer anyone, including debutants, can wear the numbers Dhoni (7) and Tendulkar (10).
