India squad for West Indies Tour to be announced on July 19 and some rumors are spreading all over the nation about M.S.Dhoni’s retirement after loss from runner ups, New Zealand in World Cup 2019 semi-finals. But M.S Dhoni hasn’t made any such decision or announced anything such yet. He has been criticized lately by many critics because of his low scoring rate and struggling knocks. But he has played an immense role in India in this World Cup and contributed by making scoring 273 runs in eight innings but his 50-run knock in the semi-final against New Zealand could not help India cross the finish line. M.S. Dhoni has made himself unavailable for India’s upcoming full tour of the West Indies and Rishabh Pant will be replacing him as a front-line wicketkeeper. M.S. Dhoni can play a big role in the transition phase of Indian Cricket.
Also, there were rumors of Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah will be given rest after hefty cricket schedule and World Cup campaign but after being disappointed by India’s World Cup performance it is confirmed that he will travel to West Indies for the full tour from August 3 to September 3. After India’s tour to West Indies, India has a fully packed domestic season of lots of cricket.
Indian team management was questioned about Dhoni’s batting position in World Cup 2019 semi-finals against New Zealand and now The B. C. C. I. has started the procedure of recruiting the support staff including head coach, batting coach, bowling coach, fielding coach, physiotherapist, strength and conditioning coach and administrative manager. However, All the coaches can re-apply for their spots but it’s upon B. C. C. I who they select. After Ravi Shastri was appointed head coach in July 2017, India has not won a major ICC event under his guidance though the team managed to make history by winning their first Test series in Australia at the beginning of the year.
India will be willing to forget their disappointing World Cup campaign and focus on upcoming matches and tours. However, India still has good ODIs ranking as they are placed 2nd after World Cup 2019 champions England with 123 points. Chances are India can have some young faces like Prithvi Shaw and Shubhman Gill in their squad as they will be looking to nourish some young talent for future perspectives.
