Here's what celebs tweeted:
Rahul Bose: Great decision. "@ESPNcricinfo: Dhoni to retire from Test Cricket with immediate effect in order to concentrate on ODI and T20 formats"
Missed the last hour of play. And Dhoni's retirement from tests. Might have to make my lunches shorter. #AusvsInd
Said it before, i'll say it again : as a test captain Dhoni was the least impressive. He is at his captaincy best in the shorter formats.
But no doubt over Dhoni's ability to inspire, even in test cricket. Many occasions when players said without him they couldn't hv performed.
All in all, the passage of a tremendous influence on Indian test cricket. Go well, Dhoni. See you in the shorter formats!
