He took retirement from Test cricket in 2015 but kept playing in shorter formats of the game. He played his last one-day match in the heart-breaking world cup 2019 semi-final game against New Zealand. He got run-out in that game after making a fighting half-century. Dhoni’ run-out also ended India’s hopes of reaching the final of 2019 World Cup.
