Sachin Tendulkar has congratulated MS Dhoni on a successful career as India captain and is hopeful that he would continue to play limited-overs international cricket. The batting great said Dhoni’s decision should be respected, and has called for a celebration of what he has achieved as a leader.

Sachin Tendulkar was part of the team that won the 2011 ODI World Cup under Dhoni. A triumph that in many ways helped complete Tendulkar’s illustrious career.

It was one of the three big trophies that Dhoni won as captain, and his stepping down as overs-limit captain, following his Test retirement as skipper two years ago, has brought an end to an exciting era in Indian cricket.

“Congratulations to MSD on a wonderful career as a captain leading India to success in both T20 and ODI World Cups. Have seen him emerge from an aggressive player to a steady and decisive captain. It’s a day to celebrate his successful captaincy and respect his decision. Wish MSD the very best as he continues entertaining us on the field with his exploits,” Tendulkar was quoted as saying by the Indian Express.

Dhoni was also part of the moment, as non-striker, when Tendulkar became the first player to score a double century in ODI cricket.
