Picking the squad for the upcoming One Day World Cup is not a cake walk for the selectors of the Indian team. The restless debate about the ideal player for the number 4 slot has been going on for years. In addition, we talk about who will be the main goalkeeper of the World Cup. Because of that scenario, fans are now clamoring for Mahendra Singh Dhoni return to international cricket.

MS Dhoni’s International Stint and Retirement

MS Dhoni last played international cricket for the Indian team in the ODI World Cup 2019. He then announced his retirement in August 2020. Dhoni managed to score only two fifties in this World Cup. Since then, he has only been seen in the IPL, so his return to international cricket seems unlikely.

With Rishabh Pant injured and KL Rahul’s fitness in doubt, all eyes are on the selectors’ choice for the wicketkeeper’s role in the upcoming mega event. The competition is led by a young prodigy, Ishan Kishan. Ishan Kishan displayed exemplary batting skills during the Caribbean tour and impressed everyone. Kishan, who was the opening batsman, scored half-centuries in all the three matches. Right now, there doesn’t seem to be a better option than him for the Indian team. The Asia Cup also offers a golden opportunity for the team management to test him in the middle order.
