MS Dhoni has been informed by the chief selector MSK Prasad that he does not feature in the future scheme of things as far as the Indian cricket Team is concerned. 

The 38-year old made himself unavailable for the upcoming T20I and ODI tour to West Indies to serve in the paramilitary regiment with the Territorial Army. 

There was a lot of speculation regarding the keeper's future after India lost the semis of the World Cup 2019 against New Zealand. The BCCI had informed sources a few days before the squad for Windies was picked on Sunday that Dhoni would not be picked again in the future if he did not retire. Coincidentally, the cricketer ruled himself out. 

“He [Dhoni] has told Prasad that he’s not retiring for now. However, he has been told that he’s not in the scheme of things. We’re going ahead with the youngsters. He told us to go ahead with our plans. That’s why in the presser, Prasad said that we’re looking ahead now. Now, it’s up to him if he wants to retire today, tomorrow, or whenever he wants to." reports stated.

However, Prasad did not state whether it was the end of the road for Dhoni. 

“Retirement is totally individual and a legend like Dhoni knows when to retire. But as the selection committee, we have to make road map, so we started to give the chances to youngsters like Pant,” he said during a press conference on Sunday.

“Subsequently, we’ve laid down a few more plans and thought of giving as many opportunities to Pant and to see how he is groomed. We did discuss it with Dhoni. This is our plan right now,” he added.

The break taken by Dhoni has put the selectors in a sticky situation and it remains to be seen if he is selected for the next series that India play in.
