MS Dhoni has no immediate plans to retire despite the intense speculation surrounding his future, his longtime friend and business partner Arun Pandey said on Friday. Speculations over MS Dhoni's future intensified ever since India lost their big-ticket World Cup semi-final against New Zealand earlier this month. "He has no immediate plans to retire. The constant speculation over the future of a great player like him is unfortunate," Pandey told PTI.
Pandey's comments came ahead of Sunday's team selection for the West Indies tour. The picture on Dhoni's plans will be clearer once the squad is picked for the tour beginning August 3.
BCCI officials are expected to speak to the two-time World Cup winning captain.
Pandey has been associated with Dhoni for a long time and also handles his business interest besides heading Rhiti Sports, a sports management company.
