MS Dhoni unavailable for West Indies series
He has made himself unavailable for the upcoming home limited-overs series against West Indies, starting from 6 December.
Dhoni was last seen playing with Team India in the mega event this year. The player went to vacations with the family after serving for a short period in the Indian army. Since then the player has made himself unavailable for the national team selection.
Recently, he was seen in Ranchi ground practising with the under-23 team. The player was also spotted while playing the tennis tournament in his home-ground.
Indian Team is moving on
The Indian team is preparing for the next year’s big assignment. India is finding a combination which can give them the trophy of T20 World Cup 2020. MS Dhoni’s uncertainty has opened the chance for the youngster Rishabh Pant who has become the priority of the selectors.
So, it is clear that the team management is searching for new options for the wicketkeeper.
