The former Indian skipper MS Dhoni was last seen in action against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup semifinal, a game India lost. He made himself unavailable for India’s international assignments post the WC exit and was eventually dropped from the BCCI’s list of centrally contracted players in January.
BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and India head coach Ravi Shastri points out that, “Dhoni’s international future depends on his performances in IPL 2020 which comes in to consider him in T20 World Cup planned later this year in Australia”.
The most awaited moment for Dhoni’s fan scattered after BCCI announcement of IPL postpone. BCCI suspend IPL 2020 till further notice amid corona virus lockdown.
However, according to the recent report from Sportskeeda, Dhoni is eyeing to return to the T20 cricket.
The former Indian captain has reportedly expressed his interest to play the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in the next season. This means fans can see him play for Jharkhand. He is likely to take a decision after the lockdown period gets over.
A source said according to Sportskeeda said, “Dhoni has been training in the JSCA international complex now and then and has been in touch with JSCA officials.
“He has expressed his interest to play Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy next year, even JSCA put forward the proposal to him. He has always expressed his interest in giving back to state cricket. He will take a decision post lockdown about this, there is no hurry either. He wants to be match ready for the IPL, and will use the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy as practice.”
MS Dhoni has participated in the domestic competition for only one season and it was during the Inter-State T20 Tournament in 2007.
