The senior selection committee headed by M.S.K. Prasad has not selected India's World Champion Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the three-match T20 series against South Africa. When Dhoni was not selected in the team, many people said that the selectors dropped him out of the team, but a member of the selection committee has said that the former captain has chosen the team for the next year's T20 World Cup. Has given time to the committee
According to selector will take big decision
According to the selector, Dhoni has said that once he is convinced that the future of the team is in the right hands, then he will take decisions on his career, a member of the selection committee said that it is surprising to hear the kind of things that happen on the day of the former captain. The selector said that Dhoni will never respond to such rumors
He said, 'There is no question of removing them. Rather they have given us time and have given the freedom to form a team keeping the T20 World Cup in mind. They know that team comes before social considerations. He knows that if Rishabh Pant gets injured, then we have no other option for him so Dhoni decided to stay until the T20 World Cup. There is no question of removing them at this time even before the Windies tour he took a break of two matches.
Dhoni gave freedom
When the selector was asked whether he has spoken to Dhoni since World Cup-2019? the selector said, No we are yet to meet and talk about the future. Therefore, he has given us time to plan our strategy for the future and think about our options. If Pant gets injured then after Dhoni we have no strong option.onths.
This has once again raised the question whether Dhoni is necessary for the team as a batsman because he does not look like the type of batsman he used to be. But the selector believes something else. He said, 'Is this what fans think? The team management clearly knows what they can do. Even today, as a finisher we do not have their option. Anyone who has played any international level knows how much pressure there is.
Why is Dhoni important for Team India?
The selector said, 'If we had the finishers, we would have sent Dhoni to bat above. Even in the World Cup, we knew that his experience will be necessary in the end so that he can guide the tail batsmen. Critics also questioned why Dhoni came down in the semi-finals. You have seen what they have achieved.
He said, 'When someone has played 350 ODIs and 98 T20 matches, it is very easy to comment on them. He has won as many matches in his career as no one may have seen in his life. In today's technology era, do you think that the opposition team does not pay attention to the strong and weak side of Dhoni? Honestly, we should accept one thing that if Pant gets injured, then there is no substitute for Dhoni.
