‘I’m not playing T20 World Cup’ : Dhoni’s viral video
A video of MS Dhoni discussing the T20 World Cup has gone viral in advance of India’s opening match against Pakistan in Melbourne on Sunday. The supporters were in a frenzy after Dhoni’s excellent reaction, which was as follows: “I won’t be competing in the World Cup. The group has already departed,” said he.
In one way or another, MS Dhoni has been a crucial member of Team India ever since the T20 World Cup began in 2007. He served as India’s captain during the first six tournaments, which took place in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016, and he is still the only Indian captain to have captured the T20 World championship.
The current T20 World Cup in Australia would be the first time Dhoni won’t be involved with the Indian team because he served as the team mentor in the last edition of the event in the UAE.

The iconic Indian skipper can be seen chatting with supporters on stage in the brief video when the moderator warns him that failing to ask him a World Cup-related question may result in his lynching.

On August 15, 2020, the former India wicketkeeper-batter, who is regarded as one of the greatest captains to have ever played the sport, announced his retirement. Since that time, Dhoni has only participated in IPL games for the Chennai Super Kings. If rumours are to be believed, Ranchi’s talisman will once again captain CSK in the IPL’s 2019 season, which will mark the league’s three-year return to the home-and-away format.
The India team, captained by Rohit Sharma, will aim to end their 10-year title drought. Under Dhoni’s leadership, India last won a World Cup at home in 2011. One will need to look further back in time to 2007 for the T20 World Cup victory. The Champions Trophy, won by them in 2013, was also won by Dhoni.
In the Super 12 stage of the competition, India begins their campaign against Pakistan before facing the Netherlands, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. To advance to the semi-final, the top two teams from each group of six teams must finish first.
India was eliminated from the Super 12 stage in the previous tournament after failing to defeat the two major teams in their group, Pakistan and New Zealand. They’ll try to reverse the situation this time.
