The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) pays homage to cricket legends by officially retiring MS Dhoni’s iconic No. 7 jersey, following a similar tribute to Sachin Tendulkar’s No. 10 in 2017.

Exclusive Tribute to Dhoni and Tendulkar

In a significant move, the BCCI announces that no other Indian cricketer, particularly newcomers, will be allowed to wear the legendary No. 7 jersey associated with MS Dhoni. This exclusive honor parallels the retirement of Sachin Tendulkar‘s No. 10 jersey, recognizing the unparalleled contributions of these cricket icons to Indian cricket.

Limited Options for Team India Players

The retirement of these iconic jersey numbers not only serves as a tribute but also restricts the choices available to current Team India players when selecting their jersey numbers. With only around 60 available numbers designated for regular and aspiring players, the move emphasizes the significance of preserving the legacy associated with specific jersey numbers.

Tradition of Retiring Jersey Numbers

The decision to retire jersey numbers aligns with a global sporting tradition seen in football and basketball. Examples include Napoli retiring Diego Maradona’s No. 10 and the Chicago Bulls permanently retiring Michael Jordan’s No. 23. This reflects a sentiment that certain numbers are inseparable from legendary players, underlining their lasting impact on the sport.
