Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, who was a member of the World Cup-winning team, believes that if IPL 2020 is canceled due to Coronavirus, then former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s return to Team India will be difficult. Gambhir also questioned on what basis Dhoni should be selected in the team.
- Dhoni has not played any competitive cricket match since last year’s ICC World Cup.
- Gambhir asked, what performance will be the basis for Dhoni’s selection for the T20 World Cup
- IPL 2020 held due to deadly coronavirus
Dhoni was about to return to the cricket field from the IPL, but due to the deadly coronavirus spreading from China, this prestigious T20 league was currently postponed till 15 April. Now due to the lockdown and in view of the increasing number of infected in the country, the organization of IPL is also being feared.
Dhoni has not played any competitive cricket match since the ICC World Cup last year. In such a situation, Gambhir asked what performance would be the basis for Dhoni’s selection for the ICC T20 World Cup to be held in Australia this year.
He said, ‘Team India would like all players to show their best. If there is no IPL, then Dhoni’s return will be very difficult. He has not been representing the team for a long time.
