New Delhi : Former captain of the Indian team, Mahendra Sindh Dhoni's retirement is hot. After the tweet of Team India captain Virat Kohli on the previous day, speculation of his retirement intensified, but later this news proved to be false. Now Virat has made a big statement about Dhoni's retirement.
The first match of the 3-match T20 series between India and South Africa will be played at Dharamshala on 15 September. In the discussion with the media before the match, Virat talked about this series, but he also made a big statement about Dhoni's retirement. Dhoni himself will decide
When Virat was asked about Dhoni's retirement, he said - The decision to retire will be Dhoni's personal decision. They themselves will tell about it. But as far as his role in the team is concerned, let me tell him that his experience has always been useful for the team. He has always been an important contributor to the team's victory.
This answer was given regarding tweet
When he was asked to post a photo of Dhoni on social media, he said - I was sitting at home and I posted that photo without thinking anything. Let me tell you that Virat had posted a photo sitting in front of Dhoni in the past. After this news spread on social media that Dhoni will announce his retirement in the evening. This case was hotly received and fans received various reactions on social media. However, in the evening, the selection committee chief MSK Prasad had clarified that this is sheer misinformation. Significantly, Dhoni has taken a break from cricket since the World Cup in England. He was not included in the team that visited the West Indies and will no longer play in the T20 series against South Africa.
Virat said that next year is the T20 World Cup and before that the team will do many experiments. He said - Our team will give new players a chance in the next few series so that their ability can be tested. We are yet to play in 4-5 series. In such a situation, we would like to test new players. We will give them a chance. Keeping the T20 World Cup in mind, the next few series will see new faces in the team. Those who have done well in home matches and IPL will be given a chance in the Indian senior team. The reason for this is that we are preparing a better team for the upcoming T20 World Cup. The first match of the 3-match T20 series between India and South Africa will be played in Dharamshala on Sunday, 15 September. While the second T20 match will be played in Mohali on 18 September and the third match in Bengaluru on 22 September. After this, the 3-match Test series will be played. The first Test will be played in Visakhapatnam from 2 to 6 October, the second Test in Pune from 10 to 14 October and the third Test in Ranchi from 19 to 23 October.
