Former India skipper MS Dhoni is almost always trending in cricket news. Ever since uncertainty crops up about Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, Speculations started to flood the internet whether MSD will get one final chance before hanging his boots. The 13th edition of the cash-rich league had special importance for Dhoni. India’s head coach Ravi Shastri said, If Mahi can play well in IPL 2020, then he might get a chance to play for India in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2020.
But coronavirus has forced the tournament to be postponed for an indefinite period. Before this happened, Dhoni began this year’s IPL preparation in Chennai. Players like Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu were also present in the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) camp. Suresh Raina has seen Dhoni closely. Raina revealed that Dhoni was trying to innovate a few things with batting at the CSK pre-IPL camp. “He was batting well. Cricket is still left in him. He has looked innovative. We played practice games and those sixes are as big as they were. Three hours of batting in the evening, that too in Chennai heat is not easy and we did that (during the camp). If you ask me, Mahi Bhai is batting brilliantly” said Raina in an Instagram live session, as published by Times of India.
Even though there are speculations whether Dhoni will be selected for T20 World Cup or not, But Suresh Raina is confident that the Ranchi-born wicketkeeper-batsman will be included before the event which will start from October 2020. Raina further added, ” His body is not showing signs of aging. He was looking different and was trying to do something else, something different, new. So people will get to know when they see him.”
