The selectors have already stated that Dhoni is no more an automatic selection for the squad, he need to prove his dominance to stay back in the team or else he might be replaced by the player performing better than him, though it is a very harsh comment on him but this fact has come out as an explosive for everyone
Former captain Dhoni is practicing hard in the nets with Kedar Yadav for the upcoming 5 ODI series against Sri Lanka which is going to start from 20th of August 2017
There is a very fair chance of Raina returning in the limited team squad and prove his dominance thereon, he is a proven player in the limited overs of the game and will definitely try to make a comeback after a long await for Cricket
The Indian cricket team has been at its very best in Sri Lanka, and the hosts have found the challenge of getting better of the world’s No. 1 Test side very tough for a majority of the Test series so far.
India lead the three-match affair 2-0, and the third Test at Pallekele starting August 12 is expected to go the visitors’ way unless there is a drastic change that Sri Lankans can come up with
Come the limited-overs assignments — as many as five ODIs and one-off T20I — the hosts are set to find their challenge of beating this Indian team in their backyard even more difficult, with several reinforcements set to take place in the visiting side.
Yuvraj Singh had posted a few videos a few days back of him working out in the gym, and on Friday, MS Dhoni joined him in doing so.
Raina last played a ODI was in October 2015 after that he was not seen in the squad after than, and this is what he wish to say
“What can I say now? It’s really disappointing and hurting. I was expecting a comeback call this time. I have been performing well and consistently, proving myself in the ongoing IPL season. Certainly it is not on the expected lines but I would let my bat do the talking as I am sure of my comeback in the Indian squad one day,” Raina had told Hindustan Times after he learnt about his exclusion for the ‘mini World Cup’.
