I don’t think Dhoni will play for India again: Harbhajan | Cricket News
Dhoni was in the category A during last season but has been on a self-imposed sabbatical since India’s World Cup semi-final loss against New Zealand in July last year.
“I don’t think he (Dhoni) is going to play for India again as he had decided that he will play (only) till the (2019) World Cup. He must be preparing for the IPL,” Harbhajan said when asked if the iconic former skipper will play in T20 World Cup since he has already started training.
Head coach Ravi Shastri had hinted that clarity on Dhoni’s future will only be available after IPL where the former skipper is known to give more than hundred per cent.
Asked what are the chances of Dhoni making it to India’s T20 World Cup team on the basis of a good IPL, Harbhajan said: “I am fully confident that Dhoni will have a great IPL for CSK. But having said that I don’t think he will play for India even if he has a great IPL.
“What if Rishabh has a great IPL? Would you drop him (Pant) from the playing XI,” said Harbhajan, India’s third highest wicket-taker in Test cricket.
