Chairman of selectors MSK Prasad made it clear that MS Dhoni might be India’s wicketkeeper until the 2019 ICC World Cup. “We’re grooming some wicketkeepers throughout India A excursions. However roughly, we’ve fastened up (our) minds until the World Cup (on persevering with with
Dhoni) and after that at later levels we are going to begin grooming a few of these (wicket-keepers),” Prasad is quoted as saying by PTI.
Prasad stated that Dhoni’s current performances present that the previous India skipper stays the very best wicket keeper on the planet. “I think MS Dhoni still remains the No 1 wicket-keeper in the world and day in and day out we have been saying this. In the current T20 series (against Sri Lanka), the stumpings he has effected and caught-behind he has taken are phenomenal,” he stated. “There is no comparison and I don’t see any wicketkeeper, who can even come closer to him in world cricket, leave alone Indian Cricket.”
His declaration gained’t be excellent news for the likes of Rishabh Pant or Sanju Samson. “Let me tell you frankly, those boys still are not up to the level as what we would have expected. We will still be giving them chances on India A tours and see that they are nurtured,” he stated.
