Dhoni’s childhood coach gives hope to Dhoni fans
The fate of the upcoming T20 World Cup 2020 is still uncertain as the International Cricket Council has not made any final decision whether the tournament will take place according to the previous fixtures. But what if the tournament gets postponed for the year?
Many Dhoni fans are concerned whether the former Indian skipper would be able to play the tournament if it does not take place this year. However, Keshav Banerjee, the childhood coach of Mahendra Singh Dhoni is very much optimistic that the wicket-keeper batsman can play the T20 World Cup even if it gets postponed.
“Dhoni is not the kind of person who will call up people and tell them ‘I am retiring’. He knows how to do it. When he will feel it is time, he will inform BCCI and call a proper press conference and do all the things that need to be done. Like he did when he called time on his Test career,” Banerjee was quoted as saying on Latestly on Thursday.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, hashtags by #DhoniRetires trended on Twitter. Speaking about that, Keshav asked the fans to refrain from social media trends, which he believes could be fake.
“You don’t go by social media. There are many things that become ‘trends’ but end up as fake news. I don’t know why people are after Dhoni. I know him well and I can tell you, he will let all of us know when he thinks he has to retire,” he said.
Keshav also assured the fans that the wicket-keeper batsman is still fit enough to play the T20 World Cup and it will be noticeable in the Indian Premier League (IPL) if the world cup does not take place this year.
“You will get to see in the IPL how fit Dhoni still is. He can play the T20 World Cup even if it is postponed. Even if it happens next year,” he added.
