According to Reuters, this rumor could be Breaking News came from Mumbai, India i.e. Former captain and present wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni dropped from T20 squad against West Indies and Australia series. His drop raises serious doubts about the long-serving wicketkeeper’s future in the shortest format of the game. However Indian cricket team chief selector MSK Prasad said the 37-year-old MS Dhoni has been rested and his T20 career was not over.
Prasad said in ress conference, Dhoni is not going to play in the six T20s here and in Australia because we are looking at a second wicketkeeper. That will be between Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik, so they will be getting a chance to keep and bat.”
Before that, MS Dhoni has announced his unexpected retirement from test cricket midway through an Australia series in 2014, with the Boxing Day match in Melbourne being the last of his 90 appearances in the longer format. He has continued to play in limited-overs internationals but questions have been asked by the local media if Dhoni, who will be 38 in 2019, will still be in the side at next year’s one-day World Cup in England and Wales.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni who is now 37 years old and was once considered India’s best finisher and no target was deemed out of reach with the boundary-hitting right-hander at the crease. He has just scored 1487 runs from 93 T20 internationals, at a strike-rate of over 127. While he remains completely fit and his glove work is still of the highest quality, sentiments are divided over whether age is fading his batting.
The 21-year-old Rishabh Pant, however, has been making his mark with his heroic batting and India’s selectors could already be planning ahead for not only next year’s World Cup but the World Twenty20 the following year in Australia.
Rohit Sharma will lead the side in the nonappearance of rested present captain Virat Kohli for the three-match series against West Indies, which begins on 4th November. Virat Kohli will return for the tour of Australia where India starts with the three T20s against Australia before playing tests and ODIs.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is an Indian international cricketer who captained the Indian national team in limited-overs formats from 2007 to 2016 and in Test cricket from 2008 to 2014. MS Dhoni began his career in 1998 by playing for Bihar U-19 team. He also played for East Zone U-19 team. In 1999-2000, he made a debut for Bihar in Ranji Trophy.
