MS Dhoni takes 2-month off to serve Army, not to play against West Indies
Mumbai : MS Dhoni has communicated to the BCCI that he will not be able to play for team India for next two months as he is joining the para regiment of Territorial Army for the next 2 months.
Dhoni, who holds an honorary post of Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute regiment of the Territorial Army, had made this commitment even before the Cricket World Cup 2019.
The BCCI will soon be announcing the names of players for West Indies tour soon.
India's tour of the West Indies will begin with a three-match T20I series starting August 3. The teams will then play three ODIs and two Test matches between August 8-30.
In a good news for Dhoni fans, he does not have any immediate plans of retirement from the cricket.
"He has no immediate plans to retire. The constant speculation over the future of a great player like him is unfortunate," Arun Pandey (Dhoni's business partner) told PTI.
