Ever since India’s semi-final exit from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, there are speculations regarding MS Dhoni’s future in the shorter formats of the game and while there is still no clarity regarding his future, newly elected BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has stated that Dhoni will be respected and what he thinks about his career will be taken into consideration while taking a call.
“I don’t know what’s in his mind. India is very proud to have MS Dhoni. Till I am around everybody will be respected. Dhoni’s achievements make India proud,” Ganguly said about his former teammate whom he had backed during the latter’s initial days in International career.
He also added that he is yet to speak to Dhoni about the same.
“I am yet to talk to him. I will have a word soon with one of the greats of the Indian game,” he added.
Explaining further by giving his own example, he said, “I have always said when I was left out and the entire world said ‘I will never make it.’ I came back and played for 4 years. Champions don’t finish very quickly.”
Dhoni’s last game for India was the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-final where India’s campaign was brought to an end by New Zealand.
