The 33-year-old stunned the cricket world -- and a completely unaware India team -- when he announced his immediate Test retirement after the drawn third Test against Australia in Melbourne in December 2014. <p></p> <p></p>He had not mentioned it during his post-Test media conference only for Indian authorities to drop the bombshell via social media shortly afterwards. India's World Cup-winning captain again had nothing to say in the subject as he launched the Indian one-day team's new uniform on January ahead of their first tri-series game against Australia in Melbourne on January 18. <p></p> <p></p>Dhoni, who remains India's ODI and T20 captain, stood next to new Test skipper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli" target="_blank">Virat Kohli </a>and six other-teammates on stage with the closest he came to addressing the issue when he was asked about his time off since that Test.

I've enjoyed every day of it. It's been challenging at times, but that's where international cricket is. All the boys have really enjoyed the challenge we got from the Australian team and the public as well," said Kohli <p></p> <p></p>Dhoni, who is one of the world's highest-earning sportsmen, was <a title="MS Dhoni retires from Test cricket: An ode to the magnificent" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/articles/ms-dhoni-retires-from-test-cricket-an-ode-to-the-magnificent-231140" target="_blank">India's most successful Test captain, winning 27 of the 60 Tests</a> he led the national side in, with 18 losses and 15 draws.
