NEW DELHI: Team India's chief selector MSK Prasad has added wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant to the Indian team for the West Indies tour. Pant has been selected for all three formats as veteran wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has decided to take a break from cricket for the next two months. After Dhoni's decision not to go on tour, people started speculating about his retirement. According to sources, Pant has been selected for the T20 World Cup. However, the team management does not want Dhoni to retire during this period.
The team management feels that if Dhoni retires and Pant gets injured, then there will be an emptiness in terms of the World Cup, which will be difficult to fill. Sources said Dhoni knows his role and position. Everybody talks about his retirement and when he decides to quit, it will not make sense that he is a team player. He will never react to any controversy.
I am sure you all know a lot about their morality. So when the team management is improving the T20 World Cup, they want Dhoni to be a mentor and be present whenever the team needs him. The source said, "You can see and tell who is the option if the pant is injured." To be honest, on the other hand, none of the names we have deserves to face Dhoni. There is no denying that Pant is the future of the team and should be tried out in all formats. But Dhoni's guidance and presence are also very important. Prasad had said that the team is looking at Pant for all formats and it is for Dhoni to decide when he is retiring.
