India batting legend Sachin Tendulkar took to micro-blogging site Twitter to praise MS Dhoni for his Test career after Dhoni announced retirement shortly after the Boxing Day Test match ended in a draw. He wrote “well done on a wonderful career in Test cricket @msdhoni”

Tendulkar who played under Dhoni as captain went on to add that he “always enjoyed playing together”. With the ICC World Cup just round the corner with a February 14, 2015 start Tendulkar urged Dhoni to make that his target saying, “Next target 2015 WC my friend.”

Dhoni, who was receiving lots of flak for his performance as overseas Test captain decided to pull the curtains abruptly on his Test career announcing his retirement with immediate effect after the MCG Test in the ongoing Australia vs India Test series with one match yet to go.
