Will Dhoni commentate during India vs Bangladesh day-night Test: A source close to the legendary cricketer has opened up on the matter.
There is a lot of mystery regarding former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s immediate future as an international cricket.
The 38-year old cricketer had last played during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Dhoni had missed the West Indies tour due to his training for the parachute regiment of the Indian Army in Kashmir valley.
While there was no official reason why Dhoni missed the home T20Is against South Africa, it was reported that he himself made him unavailable for the Bangladesh T20Is.
