On Wednesday Ravi Shastri said that the availability of MS Dhoni depends on the man himself. It depends on the fact whether the former captain wants to come back in the team or not.

Shastri leaves it on Dhoni

Mahendra Singh Dhoni went for three months leave after the Cricket World Cup and then extended his leave. He initially made himself unavailable for selection on the West Indies tour and then the saga continued for the home series against South Africa as well. According to the reports, the legendary Indian batsman extended his leave up to November. Dhoni’s act of taking and extending breaks and making himself unavailable helps the rumours regarding his retirement grow. Whatever he does gets related to the fact of his international retirement. His silence on the same doesn’t help much. The way Virat Kohli’s video remembering old days with Dhoni was related to the same, the Indian skipper had to talk about that in the press conference.

On the eve of the second Test at homes against South Africa, the same topic once again was discussed. Indian head coach Ravi Shastri clearly said to The Hindu that the decision would be entirely taken by MS Dhoni. Shastri said, “Whether he wants to come back, that’s for him to decide. I have not met him after the World Cup. He has to first start playing and let’s see how things go. I don’t think he has started playing after the World Cup. If he is keen, he will definitely let the selectors know. He will go down as one of our greatest players, very, very high up the list.”

Saha, the best keeper

Shastri also explained about the inclusion of wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha in place of Rishabh Pant. He, just like Virat Kohli termed Saha as the best keeper currently in the world and said, “Saha was injured and that was the reason Pant came into the Test side. Saha is the best ‘keeper’ in the world, and at home, where the bounce can be variable, his ‘keeping is invaluable.” About the 21-year-old coach gave his insights too.”Pant has scored Test hundreds in England and Australia, is talented, but he is still very young and has the time to improve his ‘keeping’.”
