Umesh Yadav, the right-arm fast bowler, thinks that it is too early to say anything about the retirement of MS Dhoni, and if he wants, he will play.
The topic of MS Dhoni’s retirement has been trending for a few months. It seems like his own nation has stood against him and wants him to retire. MS Dhoni has served India Cricket for so long and he, no doubt, deserves a farewell with dignity. A few are of the thoughts that if he has not taken part in international cricket since ICC World Cup 2019 and has been on the gap for this much longer, he shall think about retirement, however, a few think that it is totally up to Dhoni whether to come back or not.
According to MSK Prasad, Dhoni himself wanted a rest for some time so he was not seen playing on the grounds. However, it is his fitness that will decide whether he is capable of comeback or not. He was seen practicing in nets for the Indian Premier League (IPL) which has been suspended until further notice amid Coronavirus outbreak. He thought that after performing in the cash-rich league, he would make a comeback on behalf of his T20 league’s performance.
Umesh Yadav: If MS Dhoni wants to play, he will
“My T20 XI would have Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer as the batsmen. Then, you have MS Dhoni bhai. Abhi kya bol sakte hai, unki marzi rahegi toh wo khelenge [We can’t say anything now. If MS Dhoni wants to play for India, he will play]. If MS Dhoni bhai does not play, then Rishabh Pant,” Umesh was quoted as saying in an Instagram Live with Sportskeeda.
