There is still no confirmation about what MS Dhoni plans for his future

The primary issue is that the last time MS Dhoni played for the Indian team was back in 2019. This was during the semi finals of the World Cup. Since then he has not played one single competitive event as a part of the team. Speculations were that his inclusion in the T20 World Cup squad will depend on his performance at Indian Premier League 2020. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, it seems as though IPL 2020 will not take place this year.

Now, former cricketer who is now a commentator, did an interview with Rameez Raja. During the interview he said that there is a possibility that MS Dhoni will bid farewell to his career without a farewell match. It seems as though the player has made up his mind to retire and will exit without causing a huge commotion.

Dhoni has not told anyone anything yet. He hasn’t called it a day and might play in the IPL. But I feel he played his last game (for India) in the 2019 World Cup. He hasn’t been dropped, he hasn’t made himself available and mostly won’t play for India again.”

There is a slight possibility the former skipper might play T20 World Cup

On the other hand, it is possible that MS Dhoni might play the T20 World Cup if someone like Sourav Ganguly, Ravi Shashtri, or Virat Kohli asks him to.

He won’t play again unless someone like Sourav (Ganguly), Virat Kohli or Ravi Shastri ask him to play in the World T20. I feel he’s made up his mind that he doesn’t need a farewell match. He’s someone who will go away without making noise.”
