MS Dhoni Might be Reincluded in Central Contract if he Play Matches: Reports
The exclusion of MS Dhoni from the Annual Central Contract of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has shocked every cricket-loving fan. It has increased the talks of not ever seeing the former Indian captain in Indian jersey. However, according to reports, Dhoni was informed beforehand by the BCCI about his ouster from the contract of September 2019-October 2020.
Dhoni hasn’t played a match since August 2019 after the World Cup. He has regularly made himself unavailable in the home series. While the team management and selectors have time to time said that they know what is the future plan of Dhoni. But now, the removal of Dhoni from the central contract has given the idea of his retirement.
Meanwhile, a well-known source from this development has clarified that Dhoni was informed about removing his contract from the list. Further adding that it was not correct to add the veteran into the contract because Dhoni has not played the game in the given period ( September 2019-October 2020).
“Let me clarify that one of the top-most BCCI office-bearers spoke to MS and told him about how they are going about in the central contracts. He was clearly told that since he hasn’t played any game in the said period (September 2019 till date), he cannot be included for the time being,” the official was quoted as saying by Outlook India, on condition of anonymity.
MS Dhoni Might Be Given Place in the contract:
Earlier, the head coach Ravi Shastri has said the return of Dhoni will depend on his IPL performance. If said so, Dhoni might be included in the following games after IPL. So, the official said that the comeback of Dhoni will also be led to the inclusion of him in the contracted list of players.
“There will be an Asia Cup T20 (likely to be shifted from Pakistan) and if Dhoni plays a certain number of matches, he will be automatically included. It’s not like he has been dumped for good. It’s just that he doesn’t qualify because he has not played,” the official said as quoted by Hindustan Times.
Meanwhile, youngsters Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, Hanuma Vihari and all-rounder Washington Sundar are included in the Group C category of the BCCI’s Annual Contract.
