MS Dhoni made himself unavailable for selection following the ICC World Cup 2019. He missed the home series against West Indies, South Africa, Bangladesh and recently Australia as well. However, he started preparation for the upcoming IPL recently with Jharkhand’s Ranji team. His fluent batting impressed the coach also.
India head coach Ravi Shastri has also commented on the future of Dhoni. He said Dhoni’s future depends on the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Moreover, the head coach of Indian team also said Dhoni may clear the air on his retirement after IPL.
Shastri also said that the former captain knows pretty well what to do and when. He also gave the example of his retirement from test cricket as he is not someone “who will impose on himself”.
Former India captain Kapil Dev has recently talked about the retirement of Dhoni. He said the retirement of Dhoni will be the loss for team India. He doesn’t want the 2011 World Cup-winning captain to hang up his boots anytime soon.
