IPL 2024: How can MS Dhoni Play in T20 World Cup 2024

How can MS Dhoni Play in T20 World Cup 2024: Since the competition’s first T20 World Cup, which was held in 2007 and was captained by MS Dhoni, the Indian cricket team has not triumphed.

Throughout the current IPL, Dhoni has been playing in incredible form. He hit more home runs with a greater strikeout percentage.

Dhoni demonstrated his class in the most recent encounter against LSG, helping CSK record 176 for 6 in 20 overs by going undefeated on 28 deliveries from 9 deliveries.

The captain for the 2022 T20 World Cup will be Rohit Sharma. Both in the league and Super Six stages, they performed admirably.

In the semi-finals at Adelaide Oval, they were severely outclassed by England and lost by a margin of 10 wickets.

On June 2, 2024, the USA and the West Indies will host the ICC T20 World Cup. Given that they are paired with Pakistan, Ireland, the United States of America, and Canada in the group stage, the Indian team is probably going to advance. Each group’s top two players will advance to the Super Eight stage.

The competitors in the Indian Premier League 2024 have put up some beautiful displays. Jasprit Bumrah and Rohit Sharma will undoubtedly be included in the team for the major tournament. Other positions, like wicket-keeping, are competitive.

Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan, Dinesh Karthik, and Rishabh Pant are contenders for the position.

MS Dhoni has played exceptionally well thus far, amassing 87 runs at a strike rate of 255 and making life difficult for the bowlers in the last overs.

With 42 years of age and physical issues, there is almost little possibility of making the Indian T20 World Cup. He has played only IPL seasons with less training and no competition between seasons.

MS Dhoni played a total of 98 T20I matches for Team India (85 innings) with 2 half-centuries to his name with best score of 56. Under his captaincy, CSK won a total of 5 IPL titles. He also led Pune Rising Super Giants to the finals.

Meanwhile, in an interaction on Cricbuzz, former India opener Virendra Sehwag made a case for MS Dhoni to play for India in the T20 World Cup 2024 as well.

He said, “MS Dhoni has a strike of 255 and doesn’t have an average because he hasn’t been dismissed yet. He has hit 87 runs in 34 balls this season. The kind of schedule we have for the T20 World Cup, how many good teams will we be playing against? He won’t get to bat in the first round.”

“He will only have to keep, which he is already doing (for CSK). (Dhoni’s) batting will come only against 3 teams: Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Even if you consider Pakistan, he will have to bat against 4 teams and only in the last 3 overs. Who is better than him then?” the former Indian bater added.

Given that the Indian squad has both young and seasoned players who can handle pressure, MS Dhoni may end up serving as their mentor. Having won three ICC titles, his invaluable advice may lead the team.

Thus far in this year’s IPL, he has demonstrated exceptional finishing skills. It is doubtful that MS Dhoni would rejoin the team, but India needs a finisher.

Whether the top player decides to put on the blue jersey once more or if the fans are content with his IPL performances will be intriguing to see.
