MS Dhoni is a role model for the youngsters, he should continue playing for Team India: Syed Kirmani

The 38-year old has not been at his best in the recent past, and he is unlikely to play the 2023 World Cup as well. Fans, thus, feel that it is the right time for him to retire, though rumours suggest that he is not considering walking away anytime soon.

Former Indian cricketer Syed Kirmani wants MS Dhoni to carry on playing for India even as critics and fans alike want the former skipper to hang up his boots. Kirmani stated that the talks should stop and that the decision to walk away should be Dhoni's. The 38-year old has not been at his best in the recent past, and he is unlikely to play the 2023 World Cup as well. Fans, thus, feel that it is the right time for him to retire, though rumours suggest that he is not considering walking away anytime soon. 

"Leave him alone. There will be a time when he will retire, but we must stop talking about his retirement now," Kirmani was quoted as saying by IANS.

Rishabh Pant is the likely contender to replace Dhoni in the team, but his inability to raise his game in crunch games has led to a lot of criticism. Dhoni is currently on a two-month break, during which he served in the Territorial Army in Jammu and Kashmir. 

"The way he has captained the Indian team, he's the best captain ever. He has taken the Indian team to the highest level in Test cricket, in ODI, in T20s...Dhoni should stay as he's a big role model for the young Indian cricketers. He must stay. He already has stepped aside from Tests. It's his decision. We should not interfere. Has anyone else earned such fame like Dhoni?" he added.
