MS Dhoni, the former Indian skipper future has been the talk of the town for long. Recently, he was excluded from the list of Annual Players Contract by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. It left a big question mark on the future of the 38-year-old as a cricketer. The fans became more curious to know whether he will play in the upcoming T20 World Cup that is slated to be held in Australia. Now, Ravi Shastri has given a strong update over the same.
There were rife speculations that he might bid adieu to international cricket after 2019 World Cup but that never happened. He played his last international game for Team India in the semi-finals of the mega event against New Zealand. After that, the veteran wicketkeeper went on a sabbatical. His fans and followers are eagerly waiting to watch their favourite player back in action but there is no exact update that when he will mark his comeback.
Ravi Shastri opines on the future of MS Dhoni
Ravi Shastri, the Indian head coach recited the fact that everything over the future of MS Dhoni will get clear after the conclusion of IPL. He is quite an honest individual, who never imposes anything on himself that he is not supposed to do. Shastri said that he is not aware if Dhoni began with his practice or not. But, if he is keen on the Indian Premier League, then he will certainly come up with some heavy preparations. In the end, if he doesn’t feel up to the mark, then he will sign off from cricket.
“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.
