Pant was named as the wicketkeeper during the West Indies tour and the ongoing home series
It has been two months after the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni is currently on a break from playing the sport. There had been speculations about his retirement during post-World Cup. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) dismissed the rumours as Dhoni’s call for retirement is up to him.
He had been absent since the West Indies tour until the ongoing home series against South Africa. According to reports, it is learned that MS Dhoni purposedly made himself unavailable in order to give BCCI time to prepare Rishabh Pant for the upcoming T20 World Cup. However, it is still uncertain if he will finally hang his shoes.
It is expected that MS Dhoni will return in December when India hosts the West Indies for a three-ODI and Test series. India will host Bangladesh for T20I and Test series in November.
The last appearance made by MS Dhoni was on this year’s World Cup. He was criticised by a lot of fans due to his poor batting. Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant also received criticisms in the first-two T20I matches of the West Indies tour. Pant managed to score an unbeaten 65 which helped the team lead in the series.
India is set to have a Test series against the South African Cricket Team. It will begin on October 2 in Vishakhapatnam. The odds of the upcoming match will be available soon. Check out the latest cricket odds on Betwala.
