IPL 2020 important for Dhoni:
IPL 2020 is a big opportunity for MS Dhoni to prove himself and make a place in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup scheduled in Australia later in October.
The 38-year-old has not played a competitive match after last featuring in the semi-finals against New Zealand in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Since then, he has made himself unavailable. The Ranchi-star has also been removed from the national central contract of BCCI.
It had increased the speculation that the fans might not see him in Indian jersey. While there are also statements going around that his performance in IPL will decide his future in the Indian team.
Meanwhile, IPL has been postponed from 29th March to 15th April. BCCI has also proposed five expected dates to start the game. If everything goes with the plan, fans might witness the IPL.
However, changes will be made in the format and the time period of the tournament might be cut short. This year Asia Cup 2020 is also scheduled so it will be interesting to see how everything will be managed in a short period of time.
