After speculations of retirement doing the rounds, India's wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni broke his silence and dismissed the reports.
According to ABP News report, Dhoni said that he was not sure when he is retiring from the sport but some people want him to retire before India's next World Cup game against Sri Lanka.
Considered as India's best finisher, Dhoni has been facing severe criticism for his baffling batting approach against England in the World Cup match on June 30.  Earlier PTI reported India's last match in the ongoing World Cup, in all likelihood, will also be MS Dhoni's last game in India colours.
If India qualify for the finals and go on to win the World Cup on July 14 at the Lord's, it would be ideal setting for a fitting farewell to one of the legends of Indian cricket.

"You never know with MS Dhoni. But it is unlikely that he will continue to play for India after this World Cup. But since his decisions to quit captaincy from the three formats have been taken so suddenly, it is very difficult to predict at the moment," a senior BCCI official told PTI on condition of anonymity.
The current selection committee, which is likely to stay till the October AGM, will obviously start the changeover process looking at the ICC World T20 in Australia next year.

When the new selection committee takes over from the incumbents, the possible replacements for the shorter formats will be identified with reasonable time left for the World T20s.

However, with India qualifying for the semi-finals at the World Cup here, neither the team management nor the BCCI wants to talk about the sensitive issue.
