The speculations regarding MS Dhoni's retirement were put to rest on Thursday with chief selector MSK Prasad saying that there was no update on the 38-year-old wicket-keeper batsman bidding adieu to cricket.
Prasad on Thursday announced the India squad for the Test series against South Africa at a press conference. When he was asked if there was any update on Dhoni's retirement, Prasad said: "No, absolutely not. I am really surprised to hear that." A deluge of speculations emerged after India skipper Virat Kohli shared his image along with Dhoni on Twitter. Kohli captioned the image as "A game I can never forget. Special night. This man, made me run like in a fitness test @msdhoni."
In the Test squad, KL Rahul has failed to find a spot while Shubman Gill has been named in the squad. Prasad said that Gill has done well in both the positions as an opener and a middle-order batsman.
"Shubman Gill has done well in both positions as an opener and middle order, so he can be a back up in both the slots," he said.
