The Indian wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni unlikely to be part of the Indian T20 squad for the upcoming series against South Africa. The Team management will pick the team on September 4.
India’s three-match T20 home series against South Africa is starting from September 15 in Dharamsala. The rest of two matches will be played at Mohali (September 18) and Bengaluru (September 22).
A senior BCCI official said,”There are only 22 T20 Internationals before India play their first World T20 game and selectors are clear in their vision that it’s time to move forward.”
“They are planning on getting a pool of three keepers ready for limited overs, especially T20s.”
“Retirement is an individual decision and selectors or for that matter, no one has any right to decide on that front. But they have every right to decide the roadmap for the 2020 World T20 and that’s to give Rishabh Pant maximum chances,” the official added.
