Sourav Ganguly, BCCI president-elect, said that he will speak to the national selection committee about their plans regarding MS Dhoni’s future and then give an opinion on the matter. Dhoni, who has been on a sabbatical post India’s World Cup exit in England, is unlikely to return to action for the T20I series against Bangladesh which begins on October 24.
“I will find out from the selectors when I meet them on October 24. We will find out what the selectors are thinking and then I will put forth my opinion,” Ganguly told reporters at Eden Gardens.
“We will have to see what Dhoni wants. I will also speak to him about what he does not want to do.”
Ganguly, 47, also revealed that he will be discuss the matter with the selectors and captain after he takes charge at the AGM on October 23.
The selection meeting, which was earlier scheduled on October 21 will now be held on October 24.
“During all this time, I was nowhere in picture. My first selection committee meeting will be on October 24. So I will ask the selectors and talk with the captain. Coach (Ravi Shastri) won’t be there as per the new Constitution,” Ganguly signed off.
