Putting rest to all speculations, Indian cricket team captain MS Dhoni on Monday clearly stated that he won’t retire from any form of cricket till the World Cup in 2015.
“Yes I did say that (will take a decision in a year or two whether my body is ready to play all forms of cricket). Let time take its toll. It’s very important where I am right now. Now it’s a point of no return. The reason being the World Cup is one year away,” MS Dhoni told newspersons here this evening when reminded that in 2012 during Australia tour he had said that he would take a call on whether he would play all formats of the game or not.
“If I leave now, the new guy coming in (the new captain) will not get the ideal time to play at least 40 to 50 matches getting into the world cup. It will tough for him,” the Indian captain observed during a question answer session at a product launch event.
Dhoni had been playing continuous cricket then and looked tired and jaded and was desperate for a break. But things have changed since then, it seems.
“As of now its looking good. The body is closely knit together. How will it be later? I don’t know. So far so good.” he summed up.
