India had a successful Test series against South Africa in the home ground. The team has clean swept South Africa in the Test series. The special guest in the last Test match at Ranchi was MS Dhoni who was captured in the dressing room.
MS Dhoni was seen in the dressing room as he has been captured in the cricket ground after a long time. He is in a break from cricket. The wicketkeeper-batsman has not played any match after the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Spinner Shahbaz Nadeem played his first Test match against South Africa. He picked four wickets of the visitors in the Ranchi ground. On the fourth day, India needed two wickets to win the Test match. Nadeem picked both the wickets in his first over and handed the win to India.
MS Dhoni unavailability a question
Now, India will get ready for the next assignment which is against Bangladesh in the home ground. As per reports, MS Dhoni will not be available for the T20I series. The player has not played the match for four months.
MS Dhoni is extending his break. He took a two-month break after the mega event as he joined the Indian army. He then went to America where he enjoyed the vacations with the family. After his return from holiday, he made himself unavailable for the home T20I series against South Africa.
His availability for the next assignment is a big question. But there are reports that Dhoni will play next T20 World Cup.
