Rohit Sharma Laments MS Dhoni’s Absence In T20I Side 

Rohit Sharma Laments MS Dhoni’s Absence In T20I Side

Rohit Sharma rued the absence of veteran wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni despite India blanking Windies 3-0 in the recently-concluded T20I series.

India entered the series against Windies with history and stats against them. The reigning World T20 champions held a 5-2 win-loss ration over India in the shortest format of the game. What made things more tougher for India was the absence of their stalwarts Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni.

But in the end, the absence of the two stars and the history made little difference as India whitewashed the visitors. The Men in Blue thoroughly outplayed Windies in the first two games. Carlos Brathwaite & Co. managed to give India a run for their money in the final game but still ended up on the wrong side of the result.

“MS (Dhoni) was not part of the Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka also. MS not being in any team is a big miss. His presence in the team itself is a huge boost for a lot of the players, not just me, especially the younger players,” Rohit said.

Dhoni, meanwhile, is also not a part of India’s squad for the upcoming three-match T20I series in Australia, giving rise to speculations that his journey in T20Is is over. Chief selector MSK Prasad as well as captain Kohli have denied the speculations but things are definitely not looking bright for Dhoni at the moment.
