After not being awarded a central contract, former Indian skipper MS Dhoni’s future in international cricket is still the center focus of most of the Indian cricket debates. There is still a big suspense whether Dhoni will be seen in Indian colours once again or not. The senior wicket-keeper batsman last took the field in the 2019 World Cup semi-final encounter against New Zealand after which he went on a sabbatical.
Indian head coach Ravi Shastri has been constantly shooting his tracer bullets regarding MS Dhoni’s possible return to the national team for the 2020 T20 World Cup. Shastri had previously mentioned that anything can happen, if Dhoni has a great IPL 2020 season. During a recent interview, former Indian all-rounder has noted that IPL will provide clarity on the big debate.
“Exactly what I wanted to ask you. There is IPL coming. Uske baad tum dekho. Everyone will know. He will know, selectors will know, the captain will know seeing him, and more important than anything else he will know. What I’m trying to tell the people is he is the last person to impose himself on anything. You know him. I know him.
“For years, you know that he’s been dead honest when it comes to things of that sort, like when he gave up Test cricket. There was nothing of 100 Tests because he is not the guy who will impose on himself. I don’t know if he started practising as yet or not, but I’m sure if he’s keen on the IPL, everything will come out now and he will be ready. For all you know, he may start the IPL, if he doesn’t feel good he’ll say ‘Thank you very much,’ Ravi Shastri said as quoted by Sportstar.
