Chairman of selectors MSK Prasad on Saturday made it clear that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is about to proceed until the 2019 World Cup as a few of the youthful keepers, who’ve been tried, haven’t carried out on anticipated strains. Prasad’s views appeared to recommend that Delhi captain Rishabh Pant has now fallen off the radar fairly sharply with the second keeper in restricted overs being 32-year-old Dinesh Karthik.
Requested if they’re taking a look at Dhoni on a collection by collection foundation, Prasad stated: “We’re grooming some wicketkeepers throughout India A excursions. However kind of, we’ve got fastened up (our) minds until the World Cup (on persevering with with Dhoni) and after that at later phases we’ll begin grooming a few of these (wicket-keepers).”
“I believe MS Dhoni nonetheless stays the No 1 wicket-keeper on the earth and day in and time out we’ve got been saying this. Within the present T20 collection (towards Sri Lanka), the stumpings he has effected and caught-behind he has taken are phenomenal,” Prasad was effusive in his reward.
“There isn’t a comparability and I do not see any wicket-keeper, who may even come nearer to him in world cricket, depart alone Indian Cricket,” his assertion kind of sealed the destiny of all younger keepers until the 2019 World Cup.
What Prasad stated after that might be fairly disturbing for the likes of Pant and Sanju Samson, who’re subsequent in line.
“Let me let you know frankly, these boys nonetheless are less than the extent as what we’d have anticipated. We are going to nonetheless be giving them possibilities on India A excursions and see that they’re nurtured,” Prasad, himself a former India stumper, stated.
