MS Dhoni’s childhood coach talks about wicket-keeper’s future
MS Dhoni was last seen playing for his team against New Zealand in the semi-final World Cup clash which ended in a defeat. Since then he hasn’t been active in the game and the fans are curious to know as to when he would make a return.
With promising Rishabh Pant, who was expected to succeed Dhoni with an instant impact, he was not bound to be as he failed to grab the opportunity in both the hands.
“Dhoni has been playing relentlessly since 2004. So he deserves this sabbatical. Let him spend some time with his family,” Banerjee was quoted as saying by TOI. He also added that MS Dhoni might consider playing the next year’s T20 World Cup in Australia and then say goodbye to the world. “I think he will play the World T20 next year, then take a call,” Banerjee said.
MS Dhoni’s childhood coach wants the selectors to try for fresh faces. He advised the Indian team management to give a deserving player a chance instead of going for Dhoni’s return.
“More important than Dhoni’s return is providing the young ones who have impressed in domestic cricket a chance to play for India,” said Banerjee.
“We should not waste their peak by making them play only domestic matches. Bangladesh series is the ideal opportunity to test them,” he said.
