A few days ago, team India’s great wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni announced his retirement from the international cricket. But he will play in The IPL 2020. After MS Dhoni’s retirement, Jharkhand CM requested to BCCI to organise a farewell match for MS Dhoni in Ranchi.
Well, the Indian cricket board is willing to do the same. As per reports, a senior BCCI official said the board will speak to MS Dhoni, during the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and plan accordingly. He also clarified that the BCCI is yet to speak to the wicketkeeper-batsman about the same.
“There is no international series right now, maybe after IPL we will see what can be done because Dhoni has done a lot for the nation and he deserves all the respect. We always wanted to have a farewell match for him but Dhoni is a different player. He announced his retirement when nobody was thinking of it,” the official was quoted as saying by IANS.
“No, but surely we will speak to him during the IPL and that would be the right place to get his opinion about a match or series. Well, there will be a proper felicitation ceremony for him no matter if he agrees on it or not. That will be our honour to felicitate him,” he added.
“I would be really happy if the BCCI hosts a match for Dhoni. He is a legendary player and you can’t let him go just like that. His fans would want to see him again in action,” former Indian player Madan Lal told the news agency.
“IPL is happening in the UAE and everybody will be glued to their screens to watch him play. But the board can host a series in India too, so that people can see him live in the stadium (obviously after this pandemic gets over),” he added
