His shock Test retirement is still the talk of the town but India’s limited-overs cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni continued to stay mum about it, avoiding any queries on his stunning decision, here today.

Dhoni retired after the third Test against Australia in Brisbane, citing the strain of playing all three formats of the game.

However, that explanation could not stop speculation as stories floated about his troubled relationship with Team Director Ravi Shastri and star batsman Virat Kohli, who was eventually named captain of the Test team.

These stories were, however, vehemently denied by the BCCI and the team management.

Face to face with the media for the first time after this, Dhoni merely sported a grin on being asked about the retirement and answered in monosyllabics on how he has spent his time post the shocker.

“It has been good, a few days off,” was his only reply to a question on life after Test retirement, the closest that anybody could get on asking him about it.
