Dhoni, who retired from international cricket on August 15; recently took to Twitter and thanked PM Narendra Modi for appreciating his hard work on the field. He posted pictures of a letter which he received from the Prime Minister of India. 

In the letter, PM Modi lauded Dhoni for his achievements, "But, the name Mahendra Singh Dhoni will not be remembered merely for his career statistics or specific match-winning roles. Looking at you as just  a sportsperson would be injustice. The correct way to assess your impact is as a phenomenon!," PM Modi wrote in his letter. 

"Your rise and conduct thereafter gives strength and inspiration to crores of youngsters who like you have not been to cushy schools or colleges, neither do they belong to illustrious families but they have the talent to distinguish themselves at the highest levels. You have been one of the important illustrations of the spirit of New India, where family name does not make young people's destiny but they make their own names and destinies," PM Modi added.

Further opening his heart out, PM Modi said: "Where we come from does not matter as long as we know where we are headed - this is the spirit that you have exuded and inspired many youngsters with," the Prime Minister finally added.

Elated with the letter, MS Dhoni shared the post and responded to it saying, "An Artist, Soldier and Sportsperson what they crave for is appreciation, that their hard work and sacrifice is getting noticed and appreciated by everyone. thanks PM @narendramodi for your appreciation and good wishes."

In the letter, PM Modi also recalled some of the best on-field moments of Dhoni's career and also how Dhoni handled tough situations. He finally thanked the wicketkeeper-batsman for making India proud. Not forgetting, PM Modi also pointed out the sacrifice that Sakshi and Ziva made; he extended his good wishes to them. 

Dhoni was last seen at World Cup 2019, and will soon be seen leading the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. The 13th edition of the franchise will be played in the UAE which begins from September 19.
