Ex-India captain Sunil Gavaskar has said the time has come for India’s long-serving wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni to quit international cricket and he should go before he’s pushed. Gavaskar added, “He’s 38 and will be 39-plus during next T20 World Cup. I think India should be looking ahead.”
The former India captain and opening batsman Gavaskar said, “Nobody knows what’s in MSD’s mind. Only he can clarify what he thinks his future with Indian cricket is.”
Dhoni captained India to the World Twenty20 crown in 2007, and the 50-over World Cup title at home four years later, and enjoys cult status in the cricket-mad country.
