WTC Final will be played between India and Australia from June 7
Ravi Shastri responds on Dhoni’s return from retirement to the Test team
New Delhi. The final of the World Test Championship will be played between India and Australia at the Oval in England from June 7. The 15-member Team India has been announced for this great match. Rishabh Pant will not play the final of the World Test Championship due to injury. So who will do the wicketkeeping for India in this high voltage match? These questions are in everyone’s mind. By the way, in the 15-member team selected by the BCCI, KS Bharat has been included as a specialist wicketkeeper. At the same time, KL Rahul is also in this team and can play the role of wicketkeeper. However, in the midst of all this, the name of former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has retired from international cricket, has also emerged for wicketkeeping in the WTC Final. Let’s tell what is the whole matter.
For WTC Final, who among KS Bharat and KL Rahul should get a chance as a wicketkeeper in the playing-XI. Amidst this question, while talking with ESPA Cricinfo, when Ravi Shastri was asked about Dhoni as wicketkeeper for the final of the World Test Championship, he gave an interesting answer. Shastri was asked that we should appeal to Dhoni to come back from retirement. Because he looks fit and is still doing great wicketkeeping.
The former Indian coach said in response to this question, absolutely yes, he (Dhoni) has told our youth through IPL how wicketkeeping is done. He never played for the record, when he made up his mind to walk away from Tests, no one could change his decision.

The former Indian coach further said that no, Dhoni would never do this. Because when they take a decision, then they do not change it. He left Test cricket when he was 10 Tests away from playing 100 Tests and was also in excellent form. But, he suddenly retired and gave a chance to new people. Dhoni retired from Test cricket in December 2014 and 3 years ago he said goodbye to international cricket.
