New Delhi: The former Team India selector has revealed that the Corona virus (Covid 19) seized the opportunity to play in the T20 World Cup with former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In fact, many former cricket veterans have said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is waiting for the T20 World Cup and wants Team India to win another World Cup and say goodbye to cricket on the pitch, but due to the Corona T20 virus, the World Cup was postponed and Dhoni couldn’t do what he wanted.
Former India chief selector Sarandeep Singh has revealed that Mahendra Singh Dhoni will play the T20 World Cup in 2020, but the Corona virus (Covid 19) was a game-changer and Dhoni had to retire.
Sarandeep Singh said in an interview with SportsKida that Dhoni was in good shape and could play in the 2020 T20 World Cup, which was later postponed. If the Corona virus had not disrupted, Mahendra Singh Dhoni would certainly have played the T20 World Cup.
Sarandeep Singh added: “Everyone on the selection committee believed Dhoni deserved to play in the T20 World Cup. What he achieved for Team India as a player and captain and won so many trophies for India he deserved this opportunity.
1 Cricket World Cup (2011)
1 T20 World Cup (2007)
1 Champions Trophy (2013)
3 IPL titles (2010, 2011, 2018)
2 T20 Champions League titles (2010, 2014)
10,773 ODI + 444 tracks behind the ticket office
4,876 tests + 294 counters behind the counters

Let us know that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the only world cricket captain to have won three major ICC trophies. Under Dhoni’s leadership, India won the ICC World T20 (2007), the Cricket World Cup (2011) and the ICC Champions Trophy (2013). Apart from that, India became number one in testing for the first time in 2009.
