Should Mahendra Singh Dhoni retire after the World Cup?

M.S. Dhoni should not retire after the 2019 World Cup. I believe he still has a lot to give to Indian cricket.

First, he is a guiding light for the team.

Second, does anyone do the rescue act better than him?

Finally, I agree with former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly's take on this topic. Here are Dada's words: “Age is never factor if there is talent, If India wins and Dhoni performs consistently why he should retire?" Of course, there is talk of the 37-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman calling it quits, but I feel it has to be his call.
