Speculations emerged after Virat Kohli shared his image along with Dhoni on Twitter.
The speculations regarding MS Dhoni’s retirement were put to rest on Thursday with chief selector MSK Prasad saying that there was no update on the 38-year-old wicket-keeper batsman bidding adieu to cricket.
Prasad on Thursday announced the India squad for the Test series against South Africa at a press conference. When he was asked if there was any update on Dhoni’s retirement, Prasad said: “No, absolutely not. I am really surprised to hear that.” A deluge of speculations emerged after India skipper Virat Kohli shared his image along with Dhoni on Twitter. Kohli captioned the image as “A game I can never forget. Special night. This man, made me run like in a fitness test @msdhoni.”
In the Test squad, KL Rahul has failed to find a spot while Shubman Gill has been named in the squad. Prasad said that Gill has done well in both the positions as an opener and a middle-order batsman.
“Shubman Gill has done well in both positions as an opener and middle order, so he can be a back up in both the slots,” he said.
