Why MS Dhoni has opted for break from international cricket
Most recently, a report also claimed that Dhoni will continue to remain unavailable for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Bangladesh. Having said that, a latest development regarding Dhoni is that he made himself unavailable citing a couple of injuries that he succumbed to during the World Cup.
While Dhoni had suffered a hairline fracture in his finger during the World Cup, he is also believed to have aggravated a back injury which he suffered during IPL 2019. The same was reported by a BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) source in an interview with The Indian Express.
With Dhoni ruling himself out of the Bangladesh T20Is, it will be interesting to watch if he makes himself available for the ODI series against West Indies in December.
