But Dhoni’s childhood friend Paramjit Singh doesn’t think so and believes that the India legend might not retire. During a recent interview with OneCricket, Paramjit said, “I do not think this will be his (Dhoni’s) last season. He is still fit. I think he will play one or two more seasons. He will definitely play one more season. The reason is he is fit.”
