The News Minute | January 2, 2015 | 03:32 pm IST Mahendra Singh Dhoni has quit the test format of cricket right in the middle of India's test series in Australia. While social media reacted in shock as India's test captain resigned from the long form of the game citing strain as a reason, many turned quite sentimental in their reactions.  When CSK's twitter handle asked for fans to show their favourite hero how much they would miss him, tributes for the star came pouring in.  Send us your pics of #batsoffMSD!
