Suresh Raina has followed Dhoni in his retirement from international cricket decision. Fans put these two jersey numbers together, which forms 73 – the same number of years India has been an independent nation.
Some of Dhoni’s fans claim that 19:29 digits suggest the time India was evicted from the 2019 Cricket World Cup tournament after losing to New Zealand in the semi-final match. This is the last international match of MS Dhoni. Since then Captian Cool never donned Blue Jersey.
