Recently, the Indian team was met with defeat at the hands of New Zealand. This has led to a frenzy and a number of voices have been asking former Indian skipper MS Dhoni to retire from International cricket. However, the sportsman found support from an unusual person. Lata Mangeshkar, the famous singer from Bollywood (known as ‘the nightingale’), has requested Dhoni to not consider retirement as India still need him on the field.

She took to her Twitter handle to express her feelings. She wrote, “Namaskar M S Dhoni ji.Aaj kal main sun rahi hun ke Aap retire hona chahte hain.Kripaya aap aisa mat sochiye.Desh ko aap ke khel ki zaroorat hai aur ye meri bhi request hai ki Retirement ka vichar bhi aap mann mein mat laayiye.@msdhoni (Hello, MS Dhoni ji. Off late, I have been hearing that you want to retire. Please don’t think that way. The country needs your game and it is my personal request too that you don’t think of retirement.)

Encouraging Team India after their loss, the singer dedicated the song ‘Akash Ke Us Paar Bhi’ by Gulzar to the Men in Blue. She wrote, “Kal bhalehi hum jeet na paaye ho lekin hum haare nahi hain.Gulzar sahab ka cricket ke liye likha hua ye geet main hamari team ko dedicate karti hun (We might not have been able to win yesterday, but we have not lost. I dedicate this song by Gulzar sahab to our team).
