Only a few days ago, in an event in Mumbai, the BCCI president Sourav Ganguly opened up about MS Dhoni‘s future in international cricket. During the event, Ganguly pressed on the matter saying that there is “absolute clarity” between Dhoni and the cricket board. After a long time, a board member came forth shedding light on the most-asked query.
MS Dhoni himself has been on sabbatical ever since the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Dhoni has been out from the limited-overs series played with West Indies, South Africa, and Bangladesh. Even in the upcoming West Indies tour of India for three T20Is and as many ODIs, Dhoni has been not included.
Meanwhile, the chief selector MSK Prasad recently made a huge statement regarding Dhoni. The head of the selection panel stated that the selectors are moving on from MS Dhoni and focusing more on the youngsters.
In fact, Dhoni himself has been away from the cricket ground for long. During the promotion of a luxury watch, he himself asked his fans to not ask questions till January. However, the wicketkeeper-batsman also cleared up that he will be featuring in the Indian Premier League at least till 2021.
‘Please ask Dhoni’: Ganguly on Dhoni’s inclusion in T20 World Cup
But now, merely after two days of his earlier statement, the BCCI president and former Indian skipper has turned from his statement. His remark on the ideal former skipper and keeper has complicated things for the fans.
Ganguly safely omitted when asked about Dhoni’s inclusion in the upcoming T20 World Cup. He clearly stated that he is not the right person to answer the question.
“Please ask Dhoni,” said Ganguly on Sunday when a journalist asked about the possibility of Dhoni participating in the prestigious ICC event.
However, the 38-year-old cricketer MS Dhoni has not been as good with the bat as he used to be on the international ground. He is not a part of the ODI and the T20I teams for the upcoming home assignments against the West Indies. And with the way things have turned up recently, it would not be surprising if Dhoni does not really get a recall soon.
