Currently, Team India is playing a bilateral series against South Africa at home. After this series, India will play against Bangladesh at home. Indian wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni took a break from cricket after the World Cup 2019, and he isn’t part of West Indies and South Africa Series. Now again, MS Dhoni extends his break from cricket.
According to Mumbai Mirror, MS Dhoni has decided to extend his break from cricket and will not feature in the T20I series against Bangladesh, as well as the Vijay Hazare Trophy. India will play a three-match T20I series against Bangladesh at the start of November 2019.
Sunil Gavaskar on MS Dhoni
“Dhoni’s time is up. With due respect, the time has come. India should look beyond. With the greatest of respect to Dhoni, I think he should be going without being pushed out,” Sunil Gavaskar said in an interview to a news agency.
“Nobody knows what’s in MSD’s mind. Only he can clarify what he thinks his future with Indian cricket is. But he’s now 38, by the time the next T20 World Cup comes he will be over 39 years old. I think India should be looking ahead,” Sunil Gavaskar further added.
“His value to the side is always going to be fantastic. It’s not just the runs he will score or the catches and the stumpings he will effect. His overall presence is so calming on the field; it’s fantastic for the captain because the captain gets the benefit of his views. So that’s a huge plus. But I think the time has come. Everybody has a shelf life. He should be going without being pushed out. He should be going on his own terms,” he said.
