Dhoni’s parents want him to retire
There were reports circulating all over that the former Indian captain MS Dhoni is set to take retirement after the World Cup. But an announcement hasn’t come yet and Dhoni didn’t say anything about it yet. So the retirement can’t be ruled out already yet as well.
Meanwhile, Dhoni’s parents believe the media wants him to retire and they agree to their view. A close source from BCCI Keshav Banerjee revealed the conversion.
“We have not heard from Dhoni but what is relevant is the communication between the player and selectors. If you ask me, Dhoni did well in the World Cup but he is his own man. Only he can decide whether he wants to carry on or not.”
“Dhoni’s parents told me that the entire media is saying that he should retire, and we feel they’re right. They said we can’t handle this big property anymore,” he said.
Banerjee also said that he told Dhoni’s parents to tolerate the criticism for one year more like they did for the last 10 to 12 years. He visited the wicketkeeper-batsman’s family at their home on Sunday.
“You’ve handled it for so long – around 10 to 12 years. You can do it another year,” he concluded.
