India’s veteran all-rounder, Irfan Pathan has made it clear that former Indian captain MS Dhoni should definitely keep playing for India. It is notable that MS Dhoni was last seen in the Indian colours in the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 against New Zealand.
Unfortunately, India lost the game and were eliminated from the World Cup. Since then, Dhoni has been absent from the international circuit and speculations over his future intensify. Dhoni was expected to make a return to the cricketing circuit with IPL 2020 but with the tournament being postponed, Dhoni’s return looks a cumbersome task.
However, Irfan Pathan believes that MS Dhoni should keep playing for the Men in Blue and said that MS Dhoni is the most amazing cricketer in India.

Irfan said, “He obviously needs to play. If he does, he should for India. He is the most amazing cricketer we have. He has been fantastic for the country. He has given so much to the world of cricket. But if he is just drafted in, will it be fair for those who have been playing regularly is an important question.”
“KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant have been playing consistently for a year. So, this question needs to be answered by the board,” Pathan added.
