M S Dhoni and other senior players must play domestic cricket to be eligible for selection in the national team says, ‘Former India all-rounder and selector Mohinder Amarnath.
Dhoni now playing only ODI cricket as being dropped from the Twenty20 side recently and retired from Tests long ago.
Despite having the time, the former captain did not play the 50-over Vijay Hazare Trophy this year and will go into the three-match series in Australia next month without any match practice.
“Every individual is different but one thing I have always believed in is that if you want to play for India you have to play for your state as well. I think they (BCCI) should change this policy altogether. A lot of senior players don’t play domestic cricket,” Amarnath told PTI on sidelines of an event organised by Royal Stag in collaboration with the ICC.
