On the occasion of World Social Media Day, India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar on Wednesday recalled one of his social media posts, where he had posted an image with former skipper MS Dhoni when he announced his retirement from international cricket.

Dhoni is the only skipper to win three ICC trophies — Champions Trophy, T20 World Cup, and 50-over World Cup. The former India skipper bid adieu to international cricket on August 15 last year. He still plays for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

On the other hand, Bhuvneshwar will next be in action in the upcoming limited-overs series against Sri Lanka. Being the most experienced pacer, Kumar would be expected to play a key role in the Sri Lanka white-ball series.
