MS Dhoni’s Absence Was A Big Miss For Youngsters In The Series: Rohit Sharma

| 3 months ago

India recently outclassed West Indies 3-0 in the T-20 series held at home. Indian Batsman Rohit Sharma was once again given the opportunity to lead the side as a stand in-captain with Virat being rested in the series. And as expected the Indian batsman did an outstanding job as skipper as all the experts hail the 31-year-old for his superb batting as well captaincy skills. 

Talking about Mahendra Singh Dhoni, post the series win, at the press-conference, Rohit said that the absence of MS Dhoni was still a big miss for not only him but also for all the youngsters in the team.

 “MS (Dhoni) was not part of the Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka also. MS not being in any team is a big miss. His presence in the team itself is a huge boost for a lot of the players, not just me, especially the younger players,” He said.

Earlier, the decision to exclude Mahendra Singh Dhoni also raised a huge controversy with many claiming that it was indeed the end of the road for the veteran wicket-keeper. However, the chief selector MSK Prasad cleared the air, later, over the same.


 “It is no brainer who is our No 1 wicketkeeper. In search of the second wicketkeeper, we have given opportunities to DK and right now we are giving an opportunity to Rishabh Pant. At an appropriate time, we will take a call as to who is the best among the two,” he said.
