Veteran India wicket-keeper, MS Dhoni will be seen in action once again, as India is gearing up for the Asia Cup 2018 in the UAE.

The Men in Blue will look to defend the title in the tournament, which begins on September 15th. However, the side is aligned alongside Hong Kong and Pakistan in the group A.

Even if you play Pant in ODIs from now, he won’t be able to play more than 15-16 ODIs till the World Cup which is far less compared to Dhoni, who has played over 300 ODIs. I would want Dhoni to continue till the World Cup,” Sehwag was quoted as saying on India TV.
