MS Dhoni – Youth icon
The former Indian skipper MS Dhoni who was well known for his “cool” attitude 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.
As pointed out by BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and India head coach Ravi Shastri, 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.

Though Dhoni didn’t played any matches in the past eight months, he continues to be one of the the most popular cricketers around the globe.
