Must read

MS Dhoni retired from international cricket in 2020 but is still playing in the Indian Premier League. The T20 World Cup starts in July 1 in West Indies and USA.

MS Dhoni relinquished his Chennai Super Kings captaincy before IPL 2024.

New Delhi: MS Dhoni may have retired from international cricket back in 2020, but the former India skipper will be in the USA during the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 which starts on July 1, revealed current Men in Blue skipper Rohit Sharma. Both Rohit and Dhoni are playing in the ongoing Indian Premier League at the moment for Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings respectively. Having not won an ICC trophy since 2013, anybody in this world who follows Indian cricket, would want Dhoni in that Indian dressing room during the mega extravaganza.

But Dhoni is Dhoni and Rohit knows Dhoni’s answer if approached to be a part of the Indian team in July. Although Rohit revealed it’s hard to convince Dhoni but stated the two-time World Cup-winning former Indian captain will definitely be in USA for a different reason.“It’ll be hard to convince MSD for sure to come to West Indies, I guess. Uh, he’s sick and tired.

“He’s coming to US, though, to do something else. He’s into golf now, so he’s coming to play golf, I guess,” said the Indian captain while speaking on the Club Prairie Fire podcast which also featured former cricketers Adam Gilchrist and Michael Vaughan.

Probably in his final season of IPL, Dhoni had stolen the limelight whenever he came on to the field. While he is still one of the best readers of the game behind the wickets, his small cameos during the fag end of the innings, grabbed the headlines. While his 16-ball 37 not out against Delhi Capitals didn’t help CSK, but his four-ball 20 not out actually made all the difference against Mumbai Indians. CSK won by 20 runs in that very game.

“He (Dhoni) came to play four balls, made a huge impact, got those 20-22 runs and that was eventually the difference in the end,” said the former Mumbai Indians skipper. Earlier, Dhoni had accompanied the Indian team as a mentor during the 2021 T20 World Cup in Dubai. India didn’t even qualify to the knockouts.
