Since India finished their journey in the recently concluded 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, MS Dhoni is trending in the media. While Dhoni’s hasn’t opened up the future of his cricket career, many speculations are arising with the time progress. Recently, his long-time friend and business partner Arun Pandey has given a massive hint about MS Dhoni’s cricket future.
Ahead of India’s 2019 CWC journey, many believed that MS Dhoni would announce his international retirement immediately after this tournament. However, Dhoni hasn’t made any comment yet about his cricket future.
Recently, Arun Pandey has clarified that Dhoni has no immediate plans to retire from cricket. He also feels that this kind of constant speculation is unfortunate for Dhoni.
Pandey told PTI, “He has no immediate plans to retire. The constant speculation over the future of a great player like him is unfortunate.”
MS Dhoni played well for India in the 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup
India dominated in the 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup but finished their journey in the semi-final. In the round-robin stage of this tournament, India finished as the table-topper. After playing nine matches in the round-robin stage, India earned 15 points (seven victories, one no-result and one defeat).
However, in the first semi-final of this tournament, India lost against the fourth-placed team New Zealand. Due to the rain-interruption, that match was stretched into the reserve-day. While New Zealand scored 239/8 (50 overs) in the first innings, India replied with 221 runs (49.3 overs).
In that 2019 CWC, the wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni played a crucial role for the national team in middle-order batting. The right-handed batsman managed to score 273 runs in nine innings (average 45.50) during that tournament. Though his slow batting approach was criticised, still his impressive efforts were appreciated by many.
MS Dhoni is serving for the Indian national cricket team in an unstoppable way since his international debut in December 2004. He has already played 90 Tests, 350 ODIs and 98 T20Is. As a captain, he achieved many successes in international cricket. Under his captaincy, India won the 2007 ICC World T20, 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, 2013 ICC Champions Trophy etc.
At the end of 2014, Dhoni retired from the Test cricket. In January 2017, he officially stepped down from the limited-overs captaincy of the national team. However, he is still serving for India in the limited-overs cricket and always making a high impact in the national team.
