No Player Can Have Dhoni’s No. 7 Jersey; Another Indian Cricketer to Receive Honor, Following Sachin’s 2017 Retirement

Two-time World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni’s iconic number 7 jersey will no longer be available for any other Indian cricketer. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to retire the jersey.

Dhoni’s international retirement comes nearly three years after his last match. According to Indian Express, the BCCI stated that Dhoni has decided to retire his T-shirt number, a number that he wore throughout his illustrious career.

Dhoni follows in the footsteps of Sachin Tendulkar, whose number 10 jersey was also retired in 2017 after his retirement from international cricket.

Title: Dhoni’s Number 7 Jersey Officially Retired

Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15, 2020. He had previously retired from Test cricket in 2014. As per reports, BCCI has stated that Dhoni’s number 7 jersey will never be worn by any other Indian cricketer.

An official mentioned that players, especially debutants, will not be allowed to choose the numbers associated with Tendulkar and Dhoni. Dhoni’s retirement marks the end of an era, and his contributions to Indian cricket, including leading the team to victory in the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 ODI World Cup, will always be remembered.
