Gavaskar Echoes Sehwag’s Thoughts, Says Dhoni’s Comeback Unlikely

Sunil Gavaskar Thinks That Dhoni’s Comeback Chances Are Unlikely

After Virender Sehwag now Sunil Gavaskar also thinks that Dhoni’s comeback chances are unlikely. Former India captain believes that Dhoni will retire silently.

The story of Dhoni’s future

With the delay of the IPL 2020 Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s international cricket future becomes doubtful. After the exit of Indian cricket team from World Cup 2019, Dhoni took an extended sabbatical leave and stayed out from cricket for long. He made himself unavailable for the next few series. This gave birth to speculations of his retirement. Meanwhile Ravi Shastri, the head coach of India clearly said in November that 2020 IPL could be a great platform for Dhoni to make a comeback. His solid performance in the 13th edition of IPL could help him make his way yet again to the national side.

Since then the fans have been waiting to see Dhoni in action. At the beginning of March Dhoni came back to the nets and joined the training session for Chennai Super Kings, the team he captains in the Indian Premier League. But then the outbreak of the Covid-19 changed the whole situation.

Gavaskar on Dhoni’s comeback

The Indian Premier League 2020 was about to start on March 29. Now it is set to begin from April 15. But the increasing cases of the Covid-19 in India may force further delay or cancellation of the IPL. The cancellation means that Dhoni’s cricket future will be again uncertain.

Speaking about the same, Sunil Gavaskar said in his chat with Dainik Bhaskar, “I would certainly like to see Dhoni in India’s World Cup squad but it’s highly unlikely to happen. The team has moved on. Dhoni is not someone to make big announcements so I reckon he would silently retire from the game.” Gavaskar told Dainik Bhaskar.

Virender Sehwag also a couple of days ago said the same thing. But former India cricketer, the domestic giant Wasim Jaffer still showed faith in Dhoni’s calibre.
