New Delhi: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly on Friday said there was "absolute clarity" among the team management on how to deal with former India skipper MS Dhoni's future and things will get clearer in a few months time.
"No no, there is clarity, but certain things cannot be said on public platform. There is absolute clarity on MS Dhoni and you'll find out in time," Ganguly told PTI.
"There's transparency between the Board, MS and the selectors. When you deal with such champions -- MS Dhoni is an unbelievable athlete for India -- certain things have to be kept within the closed doors. It's very transparent and everybody knows where they stand," Ganguly added.
Dhoni has been on a sabbatical since the conclusion of grueling India Premier League season and the 2019 World Cup. At an event in Mumbai on Wednesday, the ace wicket-keeper said "January tak mat pooch (don't ask me till January)" before questions on his sabbatical could be asked from him.
The 38-year-old missed the West Indies tour and home series against South Africa and Bangladesh. Some days back, Dhoni was seen training with Jharkhand's under-23 team in Ranchi, triggering speculations that he would return to the field ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
Meanwhile, head coach Ravi Shastri expressed his thoughts on the future of the former skipper. He said, “Half the guys commenting on can’t even tie their shoelaces. Look at what he’s achieved for the country. Why are people in a hurry to see him off? Maybe, they don’t find enough talking points. He and everybody who knows him know he’ll be going away soon. So, let it happen when it has to.”
“Let me say this: MS Dhoni has earned the right to retire when he wants to. And let this debate end once and for all,” he further added.
