Reviving India vs England series back in 2014, India managed to win ODIs, T20Is under MS Dhoni’s captaincy but failed miserably and lost all the three tests against the opponent.
As a consequence, the opponent media asked Dhoni to focus more on his technical aspects on which Dhoni told him not to be jealous of IPL.
MS Dhoni told British Media to don’t be jealous of IPL
During India vs England series in 2014, MS Dhoni was asked for signing off from his IPL contracts and to join England Cricket Clubs in order to focus more on his technical batting aspects. Dhoni replied to him to ask the Indian board about it and not to be jealous of the Indian cash-rich league, IPL.
Notably, IPL has grabbed noteworthy attention in recent times and has become one of the most successful cash-rich T20 leagues in the world. From the tone of the journalist, Dhoni analyzed the level of jealousy of the British media and gave him a fuming reply.
“Ask the BCCI about it. And don’t get jealous of IPL,” Dhoni had said back then.
MS Dhoni was absent from the international cricketing events for almost a year. After semifinals of ICC World Cup 2019 against New Zealand, Dhoni has not been spotted on the grounds. However, he was seen doing net practice sessions for the upcoming Indian cash-rich league, the Indian Premier League (IPL), that has got suspended indefinitely.
The retirement of MS Dhoni is being the fuming topic for the cricketing media for the last few months. It seems like his own nation has stood against him and wants him to retire. MS Dhoni has served India Cricket for so long and he, no doubt, deserves a farewell with dignity. A few are of the thoughts that if he has not taken part in international cricket since ICC World Cup 2019 and has been on the gap for this much longer, he shall think about retirement, however, a few think that it is totally up to Dhoni whether to come back or not.
