In the recent past, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly had laid emphasis on talking to Dhoni before passing a comment on his international future. In a recent interview with PTI, Ganguly himself talked about the much-discussed topic.
“No, no, there is clarity [about MS Dhoni’s international future], but certain things cannot be said on public platform. There is absolute clarity on MS Dhoni and you’ll find out in time.
“There’s transparency between the board, MS [Dhoni] and the selectors. When you deal with such champions – MS Dhoni is an unbelievable athlete for India – certain things have to be kept within the closed doors. It’s very transparent and everybody knows where they stand,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by PTI.
As far as India’s international schedule in January is concerned, they are slated to host Sri Lanka for three T20Is and Australia for three ODIs before traveling to New Zealand for five T20Is and a couple of Test matches.
