New Delhi, June 26: Senior cricketer S Sreesanth believes former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni could be a part of the T20 World Cup squad but hopes IPL 2020 happens prior to that.
The Kerala cricketer - who's now gearing up to wear the whites for his state team again after his seven years of suspension finally coming to an end - has opined a cricketer like MS Dhoni still has a lot got in him.
"He should definitely play the T20 World Cup. I genuinely hope IPL happens before the World Cup so that we get to see Dhoni bhai's crazy innings because a lot of people have been talking and he has been silent. He knows what he does," Sreesanth told CricketAddictor.
Sreesanth is one of India's most talented swing bowlers and has been a part of both the World Cup-winning sides under Dhoni. The right-arm speedster also hailed the wicketkeeper-batsman for the latter's love towards the Indian Army and his services.
"The biggest example for a human being is let the world say, whatever they say, he is serving our country. He is serving Army. He has made it clear I don't want to join politics and all. He has said, I want to do service and don't think I even deserve to comment on it," the 37-year-old added.
When probed further to share his thoughts on Dhoni's retirement, Sreesanth said it is a decision which could only be made by the Ranchi cricketer. Sreesanth further added that it will be nice if Dhoni plays his final game in the T20 World Cup final and the team gives him a retirement gift by winning the trophy.
"Let Dhoni bhai decide. As a cricket fan, as I used to see Sachin paaji, I really want Dhoni bhai to be playing and win the World Cup. Maybe then someday like Sachin paaji called it a day, that Dhoni bhai can decide. I want Dhoni bhai should walk the field on someone's shoulder and it will happen," Sreesanth added.
