Strongly indicating an imminent retirement for MS Dhoni, Retirement is chairman of selectors MSK Prasad on Sunday clearly stated that young Rishabh Pant will be “groomed” as India’s first choice wicket keeper.
He also categorically said that Rishabh Pant will be grommed across all three formats in the coming days. MSK Prasad made this comment while announcing the Indian team members for West Indies tour.
Dhoni has not announced his retirement from international cricket. Instead, he opted out of West Indies tour on account of serving his regiment in paramilitary forces for the next two months.
MSK Prasad said that a legend like Dhoni knows when to retire but the future course of Indian cricket will be charted by the selectors.
