India’s most successful captain asking umpires to give him the ball has reminded the fans about December 2014 incident when he walked off the field with a stump despite India failing to beat Australia in the third Test match of the four game series. Dhoni had played his last Test match on December 26 against Australia at Mehbourne.

Usually, players ask for the match ball or take away the stumps after winning a game or when they are retiring. On Tuesday, India lost the three ODI match series against England by 2-1. During the second game against England at Lord’s, Dhoni was seen struggling to score runs, inviting criticisms. He made 37 runs of 59. On Tuesday too, he struck just 42 of 66 when India was losing wickets consistently.

Dhoni has played 320 ODIs and 93 T20Is. While in ODIs, Dhoni has 10,046 runs to his name, he has over 1,400 runs to his name in the shortest format of the game. Dhoni who invited praise for delivering the results including the World Cup win 2011, had made his ODI debut against Bangladesh on December 23, 2004. He was made the captain in 2007 ahead of the first ICC T20 World Cup. He stepped down in January 2017 just ahead of the home series against England.
