After the World Cup 2019, fans are eyeing their hero Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) again on the field. Dhoni had made full preparations to fulfill this desire of the fans this time. But the coronavirus infection has postponed the IPL tournament, and the fans’ desire to watch Dhoni’s game increased. Meanwhile, former national selector MSK Prasad has made it clear that Dhoni’s absence in Team India after the World Cup was his own decision. We talked to Dhoni about this.
MSK Prasad said in an interview on FanCode, ‘We talked to Dhoni after the World Cup. He had clearly stated that he needed a break for the time being. After that we gave chance to Rishabh Pant and moved forward. This term of MSK Prasad, the Chief of the National Selection Committee, has ended recently. After this, former cricketer Sunil Joshi has replaced him.
45-year-old former wicketkeeper MSK Prasad said, “If the IPL had started on time, we would all have seen Dhoni’s glimpse.” There has been continuous speculation about Dhoni’s retirement since the World Cup 2019, but nothing has been said on MS Dhoni’s side yet.
Meanwhile, there was speculation that Dhoni would once again return to Team India for the T20 World Cup on the basis of his performance in the IPL and after that he would retire from international cricket. But Corona’s transition has already postponed the IPL and the T20 World Cup is in danger of being postponed.
Meanwhile, it has been difficult for Dhoni to return to Team India as he has not played any cricket at any stage after the semi-finals of the World Cup 2019. Dhoni neither appeared in domestic cricket nor wore Team India’s jersey. Earlier, senior cricketer Harbhajan Singh also said that Dhoni will no longer be seen in Team India’s jersey.
