Ranchi: Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is on a sabbatical, will take a call on his future after next year’s Indian Premier League (IPL).
At a time when there is absolutely no clarity over Dhoni’s future, sources have confirmed that the legendary batsman will take a call on his future only after the next IPL. He was recently seen training with Jharkhand’s under-23 team in Ranchi, triggering a fresh round of speculation on a possible comeback.
Recently a video of Dhoni training with the Jharkhand U-23 team at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi had gone viral, sparking speculations of a comeback in the national side.
Dhoni has been on a sabbatical since India’s semifinal exit from the ODI World Cup in England in July. He has missed the tour of the West Indies and the home series against South Africa and Bangladesh.
It was expected he would return to action at the start of the home season. However, MS Dhoni decided against it and is yet to confirm the dates for his return. Consequently, he has already missed the home series against South Africa and Bangladesh.
