Former Indian player Wasim Jaffer suggest Indian selection panel should include MS Dhoni in their squad for the upcoming T20 world cup. Previously former Indian opener Virender Sehwag suggest India to stick with their current wicket-keeper batsman.
Pant and KL Rahul names were suggested for the Dhoni’s position where KL Rahul proves his form. At first Pant was tried out but he squandered the chances before the team-management handed the wicketkeeping gloves to Rahul. KL Rahul showed his impressive bat work in 3rd ODI against New Zealand and makes a list of records with his impressive ton.
Wasim Jaffer who recently announced his retirement from all forms of cricket states that inclusion of Dhoni in team would relieve the wicket keeping pressure as Dhoni have an out standing performance behind the stumps.
BCCI regards Dhoni’s return
Earlier BCCI officials including Ganguly states that Dhoni’s performance in IPL plays a crucial role for him to get his slot back in International squad. Execution of Indian Premier League(IPL) flunked into doubt by the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic. Which makes the netizens to raise the question regarding MS Dhoni’s future in cricket carrier.
Wasim Jaffer’s suggestion
Jaffer believes that the team management shouldn’t overlook the former India skipper to prove his batting style in IPL if he is fit and in form. Jaffer added that his inclusion will unburden in form KL Rahul off the gloves duty and it gives team management the leverage to try young gun Rishabh Pant as a specialist batter.
“If Dhoni is fit and in form I think we can’t look beyond him as he’ll be an asset behind the stumps and also lower down the order. It’ll take the pressure of keeping off Rahul and India can play Pant as a batsman too if they want a lefty. #Dhoni #MSDhoni #IPL2020,” Jaffer tweeted.
