Rohit Shama, when asked ahead of the India vs Bangladesh match about the rumours of the captain cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni retiring, he plainly refused, saying the team or the board haven’t yet heard anything about it. He’s the latest one to speak up against the rumours about Dhoni’s retirement and had been talking to reporters in the national capital on Thursday just a few days ahead of the T20 against Bangladesh.
“We don’t hear anything about these things. You guys make these things up,” Indian team’s stand-in captain Rohit Sharma stated.
It is pretty evident that no matter what position he holds for name-sake, MS Dhoni has been a guide and largely important part of the Indian cricket team. Hardly any discussion is complete without the mention of him, even though there are people who hold the opinion that the team has moved on. Dhoni had been integral in so many ways to the team and Indian cricket, after all.
So, meanwhile, though we have not yet seen any action from India’s Captain Cool after India’s exit from the World Cup, we can feel relieved that Dhoni’s retirement day isn’t here yet.
