A question about the former Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is going on in crores of Indian cricket lovers, will he return or not? His fans in India and around the world are hoping that Dhoni, who won all three ICC Trophies (2007 World T20, 2011 ODI World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy), will be seen returning to international cricket.

The 39-year-old Dhoni has not played any international matches since the World Cup semi-final defeat against New Zealand in July last year. At first most people thought that they just want to take a break but there were reports that they have some injuries too. He also practiced in the Nets for a while in Ranchi, but he continued to declare himself unavailable in series one after another, leading to questions as to whether he would announce retirement.
