In a news report by ABP News, a reporter asked mahi if he was planning to retire. Dhoni took a casual jibe at the statement and said that even he is not aware of his retirement date. Dhoni also responded to his critics by saying that many people want me to retire before the match against Lanka.
According to the report, Dhoni quickly clarified that the ‘people’ in his statement do not refer to his teammates or management. This was a befitting reply to those who keep speculating about his future.
Earlier, news agency PTI’s report said that India’s last match at the World Cup could also turn out to be MS Dhoni’s last match in international cricket.
The report quoted a senior BCCI official saying – “You never know with MS Dhoni. But it is unlikely that he will continue to play for India after this World Cup. But since his decisions to quit captaincy from the three formats have been taken so suddenly, it is very difficult to predict at the moment.”. This further cemented the rumors of his retirement.
However, media reports and Dhoni’s statement have confirmed that these speculations as mere rumors. Dhoni probably wants to play more matches and tournaments for India.
Additionally, skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri are ardent supporters of Dhoni. Not only these two, but the entire team has extended their support to Dhoni.
