Former Indian cricketer, Virender Sehwag on Thursday opened up on MS Dhoni’s retirement speculations, saying it should be solemnly left on him. The veteran suggested that selectors should reach him and confirm he is no more seen as India’s regular wicket-keeper. 


“It should be left to MS Dhoni to decide when to hang his boots. The duty of the selectors is to reach out to Dhoni and inform him that he is no more being seen as India’s wicket-keeper batsman going forward. I wish the selectors had asked me as well about my plans so I would also have been able to inform them,” Sehwag said during a panel discussion.


Soon after the World Cup concluded, there have been talks about Dhoni’s retirement. It was expected that the former Indian skipper might retire after the mega event, however, nothing of that happened as of yet. Now, since he can no more be available for the 2023 World Cup, India needs to settle with other stumper going forward.


Giving his own example, Sehwag said,

“Vikram Rathore spoke to me after I was dropped. It would have made sense if he spoke to me before that. There’s no point talking to a cricketer once he is dropped. If MSK Prasad speaks to Dhoni after he is dropped, what would Dhoni say – that he would play first-class cricket and the selectors should pick him if he scores runs. The point is that the selectors should reach out to cricketers before they are dropped.”
