The most experienced player in the squad. Mahendra Singh Dhoni made himself unavailable for the next two months. A lot of controversial issues is going on his retirement.
MS Dhoni has made himself ‘unavailable’ for the next two months
MS Dhoni is considered as the most successful former captain of India cricket team. In a statement, he declared own that he will take a break of two months for the regiment.
We would like to clarify three things. MS Dhoni is not retiring from cricket right now. He is taking a two month sabbatical to serve his paramilitary regiment which he had committed much earlier. We have now intimated his decision to skipper Virat Kohli and chairman of selectors MSK Prasada senior BCCI official told PTI on Saturday.
India will start playing away cricket in West Indies. The selectors will meet together to pick the best possible squad for West Indies tour. This squad also stayed long for upcoming series.
Team India ended an awesome world cup campaign this June and July. Similarly, they were knocked out from the semifinal, it was quite unexpected. India was a hot favourite to lift the world trophy. But they have failed to execute properly.
In this case, lots of controversies are reeling about MS Dhoni’s form and performance. The board and the selectors are not happy with his performances. Similarly, they also not have better choices in this place.
Cricket followers thought that the semi-final match was the last ODI match of him. But Dhoni has spoken his own to pull down the hints.
West Indies tours will be held on 3rd August. Now India will focus on T20 cricket because of the T20 World Cup. The T20 World Cup will be held in 2020 in Australia. So India will try to pick up the best explosive wicketkeeper-batsman. While MS Dhoni has been slow down before then.
What is next?
Rishav Pant is the most possible replacement in the place of him. Wridhhiman Saha will be included for text matches as a wicketkeeper-batsman.
The true fact is MS Dhoni is quite slow with the bats. Perhaps, he has performed well in Indian Premier League this over especially in the death overs. But ideologically he has faced some weak Indian bowlers like Mohammed Siraj, Harshal Patel and obviously Sandeep Sharma.
And that is a tricky thing which happens to MS Dhoni. Can he do the same execution against the top international bowler in the biggest limited oner editions? Thus the question is reeling through the selectors.
