MS Dhoni T20 World Cup Selection News – It is sad news for MSD fans. The man who helped India win its first and only T20 title may not be included in the Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup which will be played in Australia in October this year.
The former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s return to the Indian team has created a major question mark. Dhoni has an opportunity to join the Indian team based on his good performance in the IPL. The new chairman of selectors Sunil Joshi and the current head coach of Team India Ravi Shastri also said that IPL 2020 season will be huge for MS Dhoni. Depending upon his IPL form, Dhoni will be considered for the mega ICC event in Australia later this year.
But there is still uncertainty about playing the 2020 season of the IPL. This situation has raised due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic threat which has been looming around not just in India but the entire world.
MS Dhoni T20 World Cup Selection News
There is talk of whether Dhoni will be included in the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup in Australia this year. Just two days ago, former Indian captain, Sunil Gavaskar was asked about MSD’s selection. In response, Mr Gavaskar said that it was very unlikely to see MS Dhoni playing in the international matches now.
Earlier,Former Indian Chairman of Selectors already said that they will be moving ahead of MS Dhoni and till that point, Rishabh Pant was supposedly the one to fill the big shoes of MS Dhoni. But in a span of a few months, things have changed.
MS Dhoni T20 World Cup Selection News – Rishabh Pant, who was the guy to play in the world T20, is also not certain anymore. Pant had a concussion in the first ODI against Australia at Mumbai. So, according to the rules of the International Cricket Council, Pant was rested for that game and for the next game as well.
KL Rahul, whose place wasn’t fixed in the side, was asked to keep the wickets in the absence of Pant. KL Rahul took that opportunity with both the hands and now, for the time, KL Rahul is being preferred as the keeper batsmen for India in the limited-overs formats. KL did exceptionally well on the tour of New Zealand, where India whitewashed New Zealand in a series of 5 T20 International matches.
His form was good in the ODI series as well. He batted at number 5 in the 50 format series but was the second-highest run-scorer in that three-match series which India lost. He should be included in the test matches against New Zealand. But, he is still ignored despite being in good form.
MS Dhoni T20 World Cup Selection News – Now another comment was followed in the same view of Sunil Gavaskar. A cricketer from Australia also shared his views when he was asked about MS Dhoni’s future. He made a big statement about Dhoni. When he was asked should Dhoni being included in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup in Australia? Brad Hogg responded that Dhoni should not be included in the Indian team. He added “Dhoni has not played any international matches in a long time. Most of the matches in IPL will be held in Chennai, if the IPL is played at all. The spin in Chennai is great for bowling but in Australia, bowling is good for fast bowlers. Australia will not get the kind of atmosphere as it is in Chennai.”
