Mumbai, February 22: Former India captain MS Dhoni retired from international cricket on August 15 last year. Before retiring, Dhoni was expected to play in the 2020 T-20 World Cup, but the World Cup in Australia was canceled due to the corona virus. After this, Dhoni announced that he was retiring from international cricket.
Dhoni played his last match in the 2019 World Cup before retiring. Dhoni has not been seen in international cricket since the semi-final against New Zealand. After losing this match against New Zealand, India’s dream of winning the World Cup was shattered. Dhoni had not played competitive cricket for almost eight months before Corona. The world then went into lockdown due to the corona, which led to the cancellation of several cricket tournaments. But without the corona virus, Dhoni would have played in the 2020 T20 World Cup, claims Sarandeep Singh, a former selection committee member.
‘Dhoni was one of the fittest players in the Indian dressing room. He also had a good record of injuries. He was injured very rarely in his career. Dhoni was also in the spotlight for the T20 World Cup. It would have been Dhoni’s last big competition for his country, ‘commented Sarandeep Singh.
‘Had it not been for Corona, he would have played in the T20 World Cup. We felt the same way. He was fit. There was no reason for him not to play. Dhoni did not even take a break from practice. Even the selection committee thought he deserved to play in the World Cup. He also had the right to play in this tournament, ‘said Sarandeep Singh while talking to Sports Insects.
