The most awaited moment for Dhoni’s fan scattered after BCCI announcement of IPL postpone. BCCI postponed IPL 2020 to mid of April in concern to avoid the spread of corona virus. Due to the increase in corona virus infection Indian government announced a 21 day lock down thus the execution of postponed IPL seems doubtful.
BCCI comes up with an new idea to host the tournament in order to prevent the huge money loss. This IPL plays a crucial role in Dhoni’s future carrier in Indian team.
Since India’s semi-final exit from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 against New Zealand in August last year, Dhoni made himself unavailable for selection. During his break from cricket, the 38-year-old also served for the Indian Army too.
In his absence Pant and KL Rahul’s name were enrolled and gave a chance to prove them self. Where KL Rahul use this golden opportunity and show his best as compared with Pant. Recently in an interview Indian former player Virender Sehwag advice Indian team to go along with their current squad where Indian domestic legend Wasim Jaffer defends Dhoni and points the importance for his presence.
Harsha Bhogle’s view on Dhoni’s return
In a recent interaction with Cricbuzz, renowned sports presenter Harsha Bhogle has opined that he doesn’t see Dhoni taking part in the forthcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2020.
Bhogle didn’t question the 38-year old player’s skill to press a case in the national team but laid emphasis on how his gut makes him feel that Dhoni wouldn’t be looking at the showpiece event in Australia later this year.
“It’s absolutely impossible to know what Dhoni is thinking, don’t think even Dhoni’s shadows know what he is thinking. That’s how close he keeps his cards to his chest.
“But this is my gut feel. I had said it when he gave up the captaincy, or when he walked away from Test cricket… just like that Dhoni won’t grandstand his exit. One day you will realise that Dhoni is gone. That he has quietly slipped away and doing his own thing and that is why my gut feel is that his India ambitions might be over. I don’t think Dhoni would be looking to September-October, October-November for the ICC T20 World Cup. Maybe, if he had a great IPL, he might. But my gut feel is that it was beyond him,” Bhogle was quoted as saying.
