Ravi Shastri, in an interview with The Hindu, when asked if the team has an open mind about MS Dhoni's return, said: "He will go down as one of our greatest players, very, very high up the list."
"Whether he wants to come back, that's for him to decide. I have not met him after the World Cup. He has to first start playing and let's see how things go," he added.
Dhoni, who was the captain when Indian team lifted 50-over World Cup and T20 World Cup trophies, is spending a gala time off-field.
Recently, Dhoni participated in a charity football match along with tennis star Leander Paes in Mumbai.
Dhoni had made himself unavailable for India's tour of the West Indies and took a two-month leave from cricket to serve his territorial army unit in Kashmir after the World Cup 2019, after which he was captured enjoying a game of billiards at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in his hometown of Ranchi.
