India head coach Ravi Shastri has hinted that former skipper MS Dhoni will announce his retirement from ODI cricket soon. Shastri’s comments add to the uncertainty surrounding Dhoni’s future in international cricket given the fact he has not yet played for India since the ICC World Cup in July last year.
"I have had a conversation with MS and that is between us. He has finished his Test career; he may soon end his ODI career. So he will be left with T20, he will definitely play the IPL,” - Shastri said in a recent interview.
Dhoni’s possible return to the Indian side thus hinges on his performances in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL). He is fighting against time to make sure he is able to secure a spot in the national team for the T20 World Cup scheduled to take place in October.
