“As his fan (I would like to see him play the T20 World Cup). But as a cricketer, it’s miles dependent on the management. If he hasn’t played for 12 months, what do you expect? I suppose he has to play more suits.
“He has to play greater matches to be inside the team. Otherwise, you’re unfair to other players. It shouldn’t be that there are unique parameters for one-of-a-kind players,” stated Kapil.
Dhoni has no longer performed any form of aggressive cricket in view that India”s semi-very last exit inside the World Cup in July 2019. He was closing played a T20I against Australia in Bengaluru in February 2019, and his last T20 in shape become the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) very last among Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians.

Dhoni has already done so much for the country. He is on his closing leg. So anything he plays, we must feel happy.
“I’ ‘m his fan, and I love to see him. But I am no longer watching IPL just for him, I”m seeing for the subsequent technology. IPL is for the subsequent generation, and I search for that.”
The fact, however, remains that the remaining time India had gained an ICC event become inside the captaincy of Dhoni. The 38-year-antique resigned as captain of the restricted overs side in January 2017 after having retired from Test cricket in 2014.
