Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s retirement saga has just about dragged on as long as Sachin Tendulkar’s did, but Sourav Ganguly assures that the wicket-keeper batsman will announce his decision in the near future.
The newly elected BCCI president confirmed that Dhoni has been transparent about his plans to the hang his boots and that he will soon make it public.
“We will see what happens, there’s enough time. Of course it will get clear (within three months).”
“No no, there is clarity, but certain things cannot be said on public platform. There is absolute clarity on MS Dhoni and you’ll find out in time,” Ganguly told Press Trust of India (PTI).
“There’s transparency between the Board, MS and the selectors. When you deal with such champions — MS Dhoni is an unbelievable athlete for India — certain things have to be kept within the closed doors. It’s very transparent and everybody knows where they stand.”
Dhoni, who has not played since India’s semifinal exit in the 2019 World Cup in July, had stated that he would answer questions regarding his return to the game only after January 2020.
Earlier this month, India head coach, Ravi Shastri had mentioned that MS Dhoni needs to perform well in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League to be selected for the Indian squad for the ICC T20 World Cup.
