Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Wednesday (November 27) tried to steer clear of questions on his return to international cricket by saying that he will take a call over returning to cricket only after January. “January tak mat poocho (don’t ask me till January),” Dhoni said at an event in Mumbai on Wednesday.
It is to be noted that Dhoni decided to take a break from cricket after India’s loss against New Zealand in semi-final of 50-over World Cup in July 2019. Dhoni also missed the three-match T20I series against the West Indies and did not play in the T20I series against South Africa too. Then ahead of the T20I series against Bangladesh, Dhoni informed the selectors that he was unavailable for selection.
Dhoni, 38, who is currently the captain of Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League, will not play in the three ODIs and an equal number of T20s against the West Indies starting December 6.
