New delhi sources stated that former captain and batting legend sunil Gavaskar believes that time has come for Indian cricket to "look beyond Mahendra Singh Dhoni" and invest in youth going into next year's T20 World Cup in australia. Meanwhile there has been a raging debate on the options available as Rishabh Pant has not been able to grab his opportunities, but he remains Gavaskar's "top-choice" going into the marquee event next year.

When asked if Dhoni should be picked for the bangladesh tour, Gavaskar replied in the negative. Gavaskar told "No, we need to look beyond. Mahendra Singh Dhoni at least doesn't figure in my team. If you are talking about the T20 World Cup, I will certainly think about Rishabh Pant”.



Moreover Dhoni, who is yet to announce his international retirement, took a two month sabbatical from the sport after the ODI World Cup but the current selection committee has already indicated that it doesn't want to look behind. Perhaps Pant's inconsistency and poor shot-selection is hurting the team's interest as head coach Ravi Shastri had recently pointed out. Batting coach vikram Rathour too reminded the team's youngsters about the difference between a "fearless and careless" approach.
