Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will probably not feature in the squad for the West Indies series next month as MSK Prasad and his team will announce the squad on Friday, July 19. The West Indies series is slated to begin from August 3.
According to The Times of India, the selectors will meet in Mumbai to select the squad for the West Indies tour and Dhoni has not communicated with the selectors till now. But they are expecting that he will make a decision in the coming few days.
“The selectors will meet in Mumbai on July 19. We have not heard from Dhonibut what is relevant is the communication between the player and selectors.
If you ask me, Dhoni did well in the World Cup but he is his own man. Only he can decide whether he wants to carry on or not,” a BCCI official told TOI.
Indian skipper Men in Bluewill play three T20s and three ODIs against West Indies. From August 22, they will play a two-match Test series against the Caribbeans which will be a part of the inaugural World Test Championship.
