Indian fast bowler S. Sreesanth has expressed his desire to lift legendary wicketkeeper-batsman, MS Dhoni, once India wins the upcoming T20 World Cup.
The comeback of the Indian matador has been a subject of massive speculation since fans saw Dhoni last in the semi-finals of 2019 ODI World Cup in England.
Since then, he has not played any competitive game to put his contention in front of the selectors electing the squad of the Indian cricket team for the T20 showpiece event.
The 2020 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was the perfect opportunity for Dhoni to prove his match-fitness and boost his contention for a berth in the squad.
Moreover, the possibility of both 2020 IPL season, as well as the T20 World Cup, has been severely hit with the ongoing pandemic situation. Thus, fans have no option but to wait and see what fate lies for the Indian veteran.
“He should definitely play the T20 World Cup. I genuinely hope IPL happens before the World Cup so that we get to see Dhoni bhai’s crazy innings because a lot of people have been talking and he has been silent. He knows what he does,” Sreesanth told CricketAddictor.
“The biggest example for a human being is let the world say, whatever they say, he is serving our country. He is serving Army. He has made it clear I don’t want to join politics and all. He has said, I want to do service and don’t think I even deserve to comment on it,” he added.
Further, Dhoni’s retirement has been a significant subject of attraction all over the media. Sreesanth, on the other hand, believes that the decision should lie with Dhoni, much like other greats and pundits.
“Let Dhoni bhai decide. As a cricket fan, as I used to see Sachin paaji, I really want Dhoni bhai to be playing and win the World Cup. Maybe then someday like Sachin paaji called it a day, that Dhoni Bhai can decide. I want Dhoni Bhai should walk the field on someone’s shoulder, and it will happen,” Sreesanth concluded.
