MS Dhoni retires: Jharkhand CM urges BCCI to host farewell match in Ranchi

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren urged BCCI to host a farewell match for MS Dhoni in Ranchi.

The legendary cricketer's childhood coach Chanchal Bhattacharya reiterated CM Soren's idea.

This came after the Ranchi lad's announcement of retirement from international cricket.

'Captain Cool' announced his retirement via an Instagram post on August 15.

India's one of the finest captains left swarms of his fans heartbroken with the announcement.

"CM Soren has suggested a farewell match.

I think it is a great idea.

I appeal to BCCI to organise a match in Ranchi," Bhattacharya said.

Former BCCI president Anurag Thakur also spoke on Dhoni announcing retirement.

Thakur is currently the Minister of State (MoS) for Finance.

"Dhoni was an all-rounder, he has contributed a lot to Indian cricket.

I wish him good luck, his fans will miss him.

I think it's time to give opportunities to young players to play for India.

Batsman Suresh Raina has also announced retirement.

I extend my best wishes to both the cricketers," he said.
