Reports reveal that it was Virat Kohli who convinced MS Dhoni not to retire yet

Recommended Posts

A week back, there was uncertainty over MS Dhoni's future in international cricket. Some believed Dhoni, who is on the verge of retirement, will bid farewell, while others hoped for him to continue. However, neither of both happened as the 38-year-old decided to take some time off from cricket. 

Even MSK Prasad in presser cleared that decision of retirement is individual, and he can't comment on the same. 

The reports from DNA India reveals that Dhoni was supposed to hang up his boots after World Cup 2019 and had even informed his teammates about it. But DNA's sources disclose that it was Virat Kohli who didn't want Dhoni to go.

"It was only after Virat (Kohli) advised Dhoni not to quit immediately that the latter changed his mind," said a source close to Kohli.

"Virat feels that Dhoni has no fitness issues and can continue till the T20 World Cup next year if required by the team. The logic is that while grooming Pant, the Indian think-tank does not want any other wicketkeeper in the team. And, if Pant suffers any injury or loss of form during this time, then Dhoni can easily come in without any issues," added the source.

Chief selector Prasad has cleared that Rishabh Pant is going to be India's first-choice wicket-keeper and will feature in all three formats going forward. 

There are several potential wicket-keepers set to make an entry into the side, with the likes of Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson and Wriddhiman Saha waiting in the wings. "All these names can't replace the experience of Dhoni when it comes to playing in a big tournament. Dhoni's guidance has always been welcomed by Virat, and that's why he wants him to be around for some more time till the team is settled," the source said.

With Dhoni set to continue to represent CSK in the next IPL season, his match fitness will not be an issue for the team management. "The T20 World Cup (to be held in Australia from October 18 to November 15, 2020) will only be about four months away from next IPL season. If the team management feels that his services are required, then why not have him in the mix till then?" the source said.

There are chances that Dhoni may end up losing his Grade A contract too. He won't be a part of the team for next two months, and as per a BCCI official, the contract is going to expire on March 2020, and with not many games, Dhoni may lose it.

"The contract may be in danger if he makes himself unavailable despite being fit. If he is continued to be ignored by selectors during the remainder of his contract, which will expire in March 2020, then certainly his Grade A category could be in danger," said the official. "The final decision in such contractual matters is taken by BCCI (COA in this case) in consultation with the team management and selectors."

Okay....so no other keeper is standby for Pant so that This leach called dhoni can make an entry for t20 wc after Pant is ' niggled out '.

 

These two are making fans turn away in disgust.

Indian cricket is their  personal property now!

Its vile deeds of Kohli keeps him as number 1 Indian bat. There is millions to be made by maintaining this status. So, no newcomer is going to get any chance unless Kohli is temporarily kicked out of team.

 

Hence I dont blame Dhoni. Blame lies with Kohlis and his greed

They both have a nice symbiotic relationship going where they both feed off each other.

The future of Indian team can go to hell as long as these two get to have the biggest pie of the advertising deals.

Two leeches.

Dhoni dropped many players bigger than Dhoni when he was skipper,  so No, Its incorrect notion that Kohli cant drop Dhoni. Or Dhoni just want to stay with Indian team because of money.

 

Believe me when i say it, " Saying no to captain is next to impossible".

 

You curse him, You dislike him, You know your captain is retard, but you dont say it in his face. Dhoni did right thing by taking a break. Hope Kohli gets the message.

If BCCI wants Dhoni to play T20 WC then Kohli should retire & give captaincy to Dhoni.  Sick of seeing these 2 in T20 team. Indian cricket will be so better without these two maniacs.  

Compare these two against Dravid, Ganguly who gave up T20 cricket for youngsters .. BCCI should make a rule that nobody above 30 should play T20 World Cup

Looks Like kohli has no faith in his LOI captaincy anymore- he is going to WI which high chances he wud have skipped and now this where he still feels he needs dhoni suppourt. If Exp keeper was the need of the hour DK has been far better then dhoni in t20

I love how you left sachin out, lol. Dhoni wouldn't even be in the picture if these 3 hadn't stepped aside and india hadn't won t20 wc. He would never have been this big in cricket

The day srinivas stepped in to save dhoni is the day every single equation died. Someone that powerful cannot be messed with. And kohl would rather go with someone so powerful and want to be equally powerful 

 

That one decision by srinivas (which some people cheered) was the day player power trumped all. The repercussions will be felt for long long time and Indian cricket is going to suffer

Both dravid and ganguly were never going to get picked in t20 anyway. They were pretty slow even for odi standards.

Thats because I think Sachin was disappointed at not being part of 2007 T20 squad. Will dig the article when I find time. But he did fully concur with the idea of T20 game  being for youngsters

New form of fanboism. Since it's becoming increasingly difficult to defend dhoni directly, shift the blame and focus only on Kohli. This indirect defense of dhoni is evident in all your posts. Get well soon brother. Kohli and Dhoni are equally shameless.

He can't lead without Dhoni's help and he won't let anyone else become skipper.

 

He is turning into a curse!

You sound like the voice inside Kohli’s head.

Image result for kohli and dhoni

In this picture, you can see Jaddu eyeing them both. He will show them both what it means to be a true sword-wielding man.

 

This love affair of VK with Dhoni is nauseating. makes one wonder who VK is closest with: Anushka, Bewda or Dhoni. I say MSD, Bewda and Anushka. VK reminds me of the generic protagonist from harem anime - lacks a personality and can't do anything by himself so he builds up a large number of acolytes to do things for him. bewda to stroke his ego, MSD to serve as the de facto captain, and anushka to teach him PR glitz.
