Not retiring anytime soon, says MS Dhoni

New Delhi: Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has made it clear that he is not retiring from international cricket anytime soon.

The 34-year-old Dhoni had called time on his Test career in the middle of the away series against Australia in December 2014.

Dhoni, who guided India to two world titles - inaugural World T20 in 2007 and World Cup in 2011 - besides overseeing the country's rise to the pinnacle of Test ranking, is seeking to regain the trophy he won nine years ago in South Africa.

Sydney, Jan. 30 : After taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match Twenty20 series, India will aim to stamp their authority and claim a series whitewash over Australia when they step on to the field for the third and final match at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday.

The Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side registered their first ever T20 bilateral series win in Australia after defeating the hosts by 27 runs in Melbourne on Friday. And, the inconsequential final match would be the perfect way for India to leave Australia after a disappointing ODI series.
