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.
Dhoni’s future carrier depends on IPL 2020
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”.
BCCI postponed the Indian Premier League to avoid the spread of corona virus. Thus the tension arises among Dhoni’s fan as this IPL plays a crucial role in his future International cricket role.
Earlier former Indian cricketer Sehwag and Australian bowler Brad Hogg throws their view on Dhoni’s possible return to Indian squad for T20 world cup. Sunil Gavaskar too insist Dhoni to retire from the cricket.
Message from Dhoni’s close friend
However, contrary to the earlier reports, one of MS Dhoni’s close friend from Ranchi has revealed that MS still wishes to play for the Man in Blue and has not considered his retirement plans yet. He also stated that Dhoni has been training as rigorously as he has ever done.
In a talk with ABP news, Dhoni’s friend revealed, “He [Dhoni] has worked even harder in the last few months before everything stopped. I haven’t seen him doing agility training so intensely ever. He knows he is not getting younger and perhaps that is why training even harder to keep himself fit.”
However, the person did not reveal his identity. But it is believed that he was one of the friends who appeared in the biopic of the Indian star– MS Dhoni: The untold story’.
“He has proved everyone wrong when no one backed him. Now there are millions of fans to back him. So he will take his chances for sure,” added Dhoni’s friend. “Mahi gets angry when we ask him questions on his retirement. He still feels he is the fittest of all and quickest wicket-keeper in India.”
