Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar feels wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni received’t be a part of India’s T20 World Cup squad. The multi-nationwide occasion is scheduled to be performed in Australia later this yr and Gavaskar believes Team India have moved on from Dhoni and his presence within the squad for the showpiece match stays extremely unlikely.
“I would definitely like to see Dhoni in India’s World Cup squad but it’s highly unlikely that it is going to happen,” Gavaskar advised Dainik Jagran.
“The team has moved on. Dhoni is not someone to make big announcements so I reckon he would silently retire from the game.”
Dhoni hasn’t performed for Team India for the reason that defeat in opposition to New Zealand within the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-remaining in opposition to New Zealand.
Ever since Dhoni determined to steer clear of the limelight, selectors have again and again posed religion in younger stumper Rishabh Pant. However, the rise of Rahul as a extra constant keeper-batsman has made him the primary selection in white-ball format.
This prompted former India opener Virender Sehwag to say Dhoni received’t match within the present Indian line-up and it may be very possible that he’ll not be picked for the match.
“Where will he fit in? With the likes of Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul already in form, especially the latter performing exceptionally well of late. I think there is no reason why we should not stick with them,” Sehwag was quoted as saying by Times of India.
