Indian Cricket Fans Slam MSK Prasad After His Recent Comment On MS Dhoni
Former World Cup-winning Indian captain MS Dhoni’s international cricket future is in serious doubt after the chief selector MSK Prasad has recently revealed that they are moving on from Dhoni and backing the youngsters. The Indian cricket fans have slammed Prasad for commenting like this.
The 38-year-old is a very crucial member of the present Indian limited-overs sides. However, since the heart-breaking semi-final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, MS Dhoni hasn’t played a cricket match yet.
MS Dhoni has already missed out the limited-overs bilateral series against the host side West Indies and visitors South Africa. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) earlier called that Dhoni was unavailable for the selection. However, everyone including Dhoni himself was silent on his international cricket future.
Their silences are raising the retirement speculation on MS Dhoni. But some close source claimed that Dhoni had no immediate plan to retire from international cricket.
On last Thursday (24th October), the national selectors announced the T20I and Test squads for the upcoming home series against Bangladesh. MS Dhoni has once again missed out the T20I squad.
MSK Prasad claimed they are supporting the youngsters
After announcing that Indian team, MSK Prasad has claimed to the media that they are moving on from Dhoni. The chief selector further added that they were backing the youngsters for the future.
Prasad commented in the press-conference, “We are moving on and giving opportunities to youngsters and see that they establish themselves in the side with Rishabh Pant doing so well and even Sanju Samson coming into the side, I am sure you will understand our thought process.”
This may be a big sign of Dhoni’s upcoming retirement from international cricket. But some Indian cricket fans are not happy on MSK Prasad. They have slammed the chief selector and some have even advised BCCI to sack him.
Here are some twitter reactions:

Sir i need to ask you a question..Who the hell is #MSKPRASAD…he doesn't have any experience in international cricket and he is saying that we are moving on from Dhoni…First of all he destroy ambati rayudu career and now he is insulting the great MS Dhoni….— Mohit patni (@Mohitpatni6) October 24, 2019
If #mskprasad has 'moved on' from #MSDhoni and doesn't want to select him again then why the hell is he saying that playing domestic cricket, getting touch back is Dhoni's personal call. Bhai tujhe agar Select hi nahin karna hai toh domestic cricket khelne mein ghanta logic hai.— Satyakam (@satyakam92) October 25, 2019

If #MSKPrasad thought @msdhoni was at his mercy, he be better off being silent. Mahi has a greater role in nation building and hope MSK does not embarrass himself when asked to work under Dhoni, one day or the other! MSK smacks of arrogance!— Viswanathan Shastri (@giviswa) October 25, 2019
Dear MSK Prasad sir, enough of politics in cricket. You can't get away from what you are doing just by saying "Dhoni always wanted to give chance to youngsters" enough is enough #MSKPrasad#MSDhoni#INDvBAN— Ayush (@ayushl07) October 25, 2019
