It will be the first time that the board will meet the former Men in Blue skipper
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president-elect Sourav Ganguly said that the selectors are scheduled to meet Mahendra Singh Dhoni on October 24. They will discuss his future with him. It will be the first time that the board will meet him since his absence that started during the post-World Cup.
MS Dhoni’s last appearance in cricket was during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-final match against New Zealand. The Men in Blue was defeated by the Kiwis and the famous batsman received a lot of criticisms due to his slow performances. Since Dhoni’s absence, there had been speculations about his retirement from playing cricket.
‘I will find out from the selectors when I meet them on 24th. I will find out what the selectors are thinking. Then I will put my opinion’, Ganguly said. He also added, ‘What matters is what Dhoni wants. Maybe, there is clarity between Dhoni and the selectors, but I do not know of it as yet. Neither side has discussed anything with me. They'll decide on the way forward’.
Aside from the meeting with MS Dhoni, the selectors will also meet to pick the players for India’s T20 squad who will play against Bangladesh. The Men in Blue are slated to have a home series against the Tigers on November.
India is scheduled to play the third and final match of the home Test series against South Africa. The home team (-1111.11) has the best odds to win against the Proteas (+720). Check out the latest cricket odds on Betwala.
