India had last won the World Cup in 2011, then Dhoni was the captain of the team.
There will be no discussion on whether they will retire after the World Cup: Prasad
new Delhi. MSK Prasad, the head of the selection committee of the Indian Cricket Team, believes that wicketkeeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni will prove to be crucial for Team India in the recent World Cup in England due to his recent form and experience. According to Prasad, whether it is to advise captain Virat Kohli, be it from wicketkeeping or guiding young players in the field, Dhoni will prove to be the most important person for India in the World Cup.
Mahi returned to his natural game
He said in an interview to the Sports website Cricinfo, "It is clear from the way Mahi played against Australia and New Zealand in the last two series, that he has decided to play his natural game. This is the only Dhoni whom we know. "He said," We will be very happy if they can show their style of playing great innings. There is a power inside them that they use in their batting. We need the same old Dhoni. The way they are playing, we are seeing their old touch. '
Team India had won the World Cup in 2011 under Dhoni's leadership.
This will be Dhoni's fourth World Cup in 37 years. They will be 38 years old after the World Cup on July 7. India had won the ODI World Cup in 2011 for the last time under Dhoni's leadership. They are an integral part of the team's leadership group at the moment. However, he has been criticized for batting on several occasions in the last one year. Happy Prasad said with the recent form of Dhoni, "Dhoni will play in IPL before joining India's World Cup. They can get to play 14-16 matches in IPL. Almost all matches of the IPL are high pressure. In such a situation, Dhoni will be able to pursue his Australia-New Zealand form. "
Dhoni's Wicketkeeping Skills Never Doubt
He said, 'We never had any doubt about his wicketkeeping. Just worrying about his batting form. However, we knew that they will get their form as much as they will. Such fluctuations arise in a player's career. Big players like them do not have to tell anything. They know what to expect from them. '
Dhoni was not removed, but instead of trying to find an alternative: Prasad
On the issue of not choosing Dhoni in the T-20 series against the West Indies and Australia and questioning his future, Prasad said, "He has not been removed. I spoke to myself and the team management. I told them that we have to identify the second wicketkeeper for the World Cup. We want to spend more time with Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant. That was the reason that Karthik and Pant played in those 6 T-20s. "Asked whether Dhoni has indicated that this will be his last World Cup, Prasad said," We have not discussed anything on this matter. . Prior to such a big tournament, it would not be fair to forget that their focus is to get lost. All our energy should be on the good preparation for the World Cup. '
