Dhoni may stop ODIs however liable to highlight in T20 World Cup, says Shastri

Long-serving Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni may stop One-day Internationals soon however could in any case be in dispute for a spot in the nation’s squad for the Twenty20 World Cup, mentor Ravi Shastri said. Dhoni, who will turn 39 in July, quit Test cricket in 2014 and has not played for India since taking a break after the group’s semi-finals exit at the 50-overs World Cup in July a year ago. The apathetic previous India commander has ardently would not expand on his future and is set to come back to activity at the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is probably going to start in March. A decent trip in the establishment based Twenty20 association could see him join Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson in a three-manner race for the stumper’s job in the World Cup in Australia.

“He has completed the process of (playing) Test coordinate cricket. More likely than not, he will complete one-day cricket. At his age I figure, the main arrangement he will need to play is T20,” Shastri told CNN-News18 channel.

“In the event that he feels, when he returns, that something isn’t right, he will quit…But in the event that he has a breaking IPL season, at that point, you know…” “At that point it’s the selectors’ business to perceive what they need to do. In any case, in the event that he works admirably, I’m certain he places himself into conflict.” Asked imagine a scenario where each of the three stumpers dazzle in the IPL, Shastri indicated Dhoni’s experience may secure it for him despite the fact that Pant may in any case play simply as a batsman.

“You need to see, who will carry out the responsibility at what number at what job,” Shastri said. “Whose experience will you consider? Will you consider youth or colorfulness? Who fits in to that number the best? On the off chance that we are playing in Australia, who will adjust to that condition the best?”
