Recently, veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh said that according to him MS Dhoni has played his last match for India.
“As far as I know him, he won’t want to wear India blue jersey again. IPL he will play but for India I think he had decided World Cup (2019) was his last,” Harbhajan said.
Dhoni has not played competitive cricket since India’s semi-final loss to New Zealand in the World Cup 2019.
The former India captain was set to lead Chennai Super Kings in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) but the Board of Control for Cricket in India postponed the lucrative league indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
