The national selectors have made it clear that former Indian Captain, wicket-keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be a part of the Indian Team for the 2019 World Cup in England. Chief Selector, MSK Prasad said that, ‘MSD is the best wicket-keeper in the world. His spot is sealed for the 2019 World Cup in England. All the selectors are on the same page about MSD spot.’
His calm approach suits Indian batting
Dark clouds have been casting on Dhoni for a long while. It is true that he had lost his ability to tee off towards the end of an innings. But he has proved vital in the middle order. Given the uncertainty in the Indian batting middle order, and the board refusing to play Ajinkya Rahane in the No.3 and No.4 spot, and Dhoni’s calm approach during the recent with Sri Lanka and previously with Australia have suited the team.
Selectors should look for alternatives – Kiran More
Former Indian stumper and selector Kiran More disagreed with MSK Prasad’s comments on wicket-keeper resources. ‘Dhoni is the best keeper we have. That doesn’t mean we don’t have enough resources. 2019 is a long way ahead, and it is important to have a backup. Dinesh Karthik is there. But I’m surprised Saha is not there.’
