The captain cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni has officially announced his retirement yesterday on 15th August at exactly 19:29 PM. Fans and fraternity didn’t understand the significance of choosing this particular time. The question ‘Why the number 1929 is special?’ is lingering in people’s minds.
Getting into the answer, this particular number 1929 is called Angel Number. It says that you have completed a major phase or cycle in life and that has brought closure to projects and /or ways of doing or ‘being’. Your angels support and encourage you to continue along your path knowing that you are heading in the right direction. In military-style, it is written as 1929 and in railway style, we write it like 19:29. There could not be a better day than Independence Day of India to announce his retirement. Mahendra Singh Dhoni has served the nation for so many years. It’s not been an easy task to carry the pressure of a cricket-loving nation with 130 million population.
We are very much aware of the way Mahendra Singh Dhoni kept his calm and composure throughout his playing career and there’s a lot to learn for the youngsters from such a person. Dhoni didn’t play any International match for team India after the defeat against New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup. The legendary cricketer badly wished to retire from International cricket with winning the World Cup, though it didn’t come true.
Dhoni was never the kind of sportsman who chases records, he was always away from the limelight. That’s why he posted a simple video in his Instagram profile to announce his retirement. It was not a formal goodbye as expected. There was no farewell speech. With his fitness level, Dhoni could have easily played another World Cup. However, he chose to retire because he found it to be the right time to call it a day. The cricket fans will certainly adore his decision. He will always be considered a legend for all the incredible decisions he took.
If we talk about the contributions of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, well, being the arguably best captain of the Indian Cricket Team, he has won all ICC trophies. He was also phenomenal behind the stumps along with his batting skills. That moment of hitting the winning six in the 2011 World Cup is still and will be the best moment for 130 crores Indians forever. Thank you for everything Maahi.
