MS Dhoni is out of the Indian team so that Rishabh Pant can groom up

MS Dhoni is out of the Indian team so that Rishabh Pant can groom up

MS Dhoni’s extension of leaves once again gave birth to speculations over his retirement. Now it has been learnt that Dhoni is out of the team so that Rishabh Pant gets enough time to be groomed.

The story

MS Dhoni was expected to take retirement from international cricket career post the debacle in World Cup 2019. But he took two-month sabbatical leave to serve Indian Army and then kept himself out of the West Indies tour. He also kept himself unavailable for the South Africa series at home. A couple of days ago it was learnt that Dhoni extended his leaves till November and is not available for Bangladesh series as well. With the doubt over his retirement seems a never-ending one, new information suggests that Dhoni is purposely out of the team.

The details

The aura of Mahendra Singh Dhoni is such that it is tough to keep him out of the team when he available for selection. Now according to a report of the news agency, IANS, Dhoni is purposely unavailable for the selection. By keeping himself unavailable, the former Indian captain is giving the Indian cricket board, BCCI time to prepare the promising Pant and some other few other wicket-keeping prospects for the 2020 World T20. Whether Dhoni still wants to continue his cricket career is still a mystery. But if the team management fails to come up with a suitable solution in time, he may work as a back-up option especially for the mega event in Australia scheduled for 2020.

Indian cricket team first time won T20 World Cup under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. Now with Dhoni, almost at the end of his career, Virat and the board are trying out new faces to find a replacement for Dhoni. Pant is undoubtedly the first choice. But his shot selection is a point of worry for the team currently. If he fails to improve himself, the likes of Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan will be taken into consideration. And if all fail, the Indian cricket might once again go back the safe option i.e Mahi. But whether Dhoni is just a ‘disaster management’ solution for the team or a little more than that will be answered in future.
