Dhoni has played his last match for India: Ashish Nehra

Tuesday, August 4, 2020 • Tamil Sport News Comments

Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni was last seen on field during India's semi-final exit from the 2019 World Cup, after which Dhoni has not played International cricket and refrained from answering questions regarding the same as well. With Dhoni's return to International cricket remaining uncertain, fans of the wicket keeper-batsman are now eagerly awaiting to watch their star player in action in the 13th edition of IPL set to begin on September 19 in the UAE.

Meanwhile, former Indian fast bowler Ashish Nehra is of the opinion that Dhoni has played his last game for the Indian team and will not be seen in the iconic blue jersey again. On the Star Sports show 'Cricket Connected,' Nehra stated, "As much as I know MS Dhoni, he has played his last game for India happily. MS Dhoni has nothing to prove and we, in the media, discuss all these things because he hasn't announced his retirement. Only he can tell what's in his head. See as far as MS Dhoni's international career is concerned, I don't think this IPL has anything to do with it. If you are a captain, a selector or a coach and if MS Dhoni is ready to play, he will be my number one name on the list."

"For me MS Dhoni's game never came down, till the last game he played India had hoped to reach the World Cup final, till the time MS Dhoni was there. The minute he got run out everybody's hopes were gone. It shows where his game was even at that time. He knows how to run the team, he knows how to push youngsters forward, all those things I don't need to repeat again and again. I don't think this IPL makes any difference to his stature, his aura as a player and I don't think so that a tournament like IPL should be MS Dhoni's selection criteria," the former fast bowler further added.
