MS Dhoni will not be able to play T20 World Cup:
Former Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is out of the Indian team till December. MS Dhoni, who played the last international match against New Zealand in the semi-finals of the World Cup 2019 played in England and Wales, is now out of the T20 series against South Africa in September after the West Indies tour.
In such a situation, it can be clearly said that MS Dhoni will not be seen in blue jersey for the Indian team till December 2019, because Dhoni has already retired from the Test match. Apart from this, Dhoni’s leave seems to be possible from next year’s T20 World Cup in Australia, because the selection committee with chief selector MSK Prasad is not thinking about Dhoni’s future plans.
MSK Prasad said after the team selected for the West Indies tour that MS Dhoni was only part of the Indian team’s future plan till the World Cup 2019, but now we will give more and more chances to wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant. On the other hand, MS Dhoni has not clarified anything about his retirement. Even Indian management is keeping silence on Dhoni’s retirement.
Why is MS Dhoni out of the team till December?
In fact, MS Dhoni will be out of the team till December because he is out of the T20 series against South Africa. After this, Bangladesh team will visit India. Bangladesh team will also play T20 and Test series here.
Dhoni cannot play in Tests and in the T20 selectors, given the World Cup 2020, Rishabh Pant will give Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson a chance.
At the same time, if we talk about one-day cricket, the Indian team will play their One-Day International series against the West Indies in December. In such a situation, it can be said that MS Dhoni will appear in the ODI series and that series might be the last for Dhoni, because after this the Indian team will focus on the T20 World Cup. Therefore, 38-year-old MS Dhoni’s leaf cut from the team is considered almost certain.
