MS Dhoni’s future in international cricket continues to be one of the most talked about topics in the game right now. Ever since the World Cup ended in July last year, MS Dhoni’s future has been the talk of the town. The former India skipper has not played a single competitive game since the World Cup ended.
Even while the tournament was going on, reports suggested that the former India skipper would retire after the end of the World Cup. However, he sprung a big surprise by taking a sabbatical from the game which is yet to end.
His sabbatical would have ended last month in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He had also started training for the league in Chennai before the BCCI suspended the league indefinitely in the light of the coronavirus pandemic. The IPL was seen by many as the tournament which could have helped MS Dhoni make a comeback to the Indian team.
But with the fate of IPL not clear, the 38-year old’s future in international cricket is also unclear. However, former Australia and Chennai Super Kings batsman Mike Hussey believes that MS Dhoni is still good enough to play international cricket. At the same time, the Australia legend stated that nobody can answer the question better than MS Dhoni.
“Of course he is still fit to play international cricket. But Dhoni is the best person to answer what is in his mind,” Mike Hussey was quoted as saying by Indian Express.
The World Cup-winner also spoke on the fate of this year’s T20 World Cup. Australia are scheduled to host the marquee event but there are questions marks over it due to the pandemic. There have been suggestions that the tournament should happen behind closed doors. But the likes of Allan Border have spoken against the idea. As far as Hussey is concerned, he said:
“I am sure ICC is considering all options at this stage.”
