Reportedly there’s a strong hint that he may not be seen in the blue jersey anymore. Recently many cricket experts and pundits have stated that time has come for Dhoni to bid goodbye to the cricket world and pave way for the youngsters. Accordingly former Pakistani pacer, Shoaib Akhtar has stated that the decision to retire lies on entirely Dhoni, but it would be advisable for Dhoni to quit before others start to mock and tease him. Meanwhile Akhtar, also stated that Dhoni must see whether his body permits him to carry on at the highest level as after 35 generally the body slows even when there’s a mental desire to carry on.

Further in an Interview with the TOI, the source stated, “We’re surprised that he’s not done it so far. There are youngsters like Rishabh Pant waiting to grab their chances. As we saw in the World Cup, Dhoni isn’t the same batsman anymore. Despite coming in at No. 6 or 7, he was struggling to force the pace, and it was hurting the team.”

Moreover the source clearly stated that there was no chance that the former Indian captain would be selected for the upcoming tour of West Indies. The source said, “I don’t think he’s in the selectors’ plan for the 2020 T20 World Cup too. He must quit international cricket gracefully. He isn’t an automatic pick any more.” Perhaps the selection date of the Indian team for the West Indies tour in July-August is still hazy as few players are still left stranded in Manchester due to the unavailability of return flight tickets. The tour includes three T20Is, ODIs, followed by a test series.
