MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh need to work out themselves if they have the motivation to continue: Adam Gilchrist to India Today

first_imgFormer Australian cricketer Adam Gilchrist suggests India should go talent hunting now that the Champions trophy is over, like the rest of the cricket world to find the right balance for the World Cup, which is only two years away.His view comes on the back of Rahul Dravid’s opinion where he suggested the selectors needed to take a call if there was space for both veterans Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni and whether they needed to continue exploring fresh faces.In an interview with India Today, Gilchrist says it will soon be decision time for the Indian selectors.”India like the rest of the nations will have the challenge of working out what the right balance will be. Guys like Dhoni and Yuvi need to work out themselves if they have the motivation to continue that long. They need to be in conversation with the captain, the selectors and the board. I don’t think they need to make these decisions right now but they will be talking about them in the next couple of months to work out what the best direction is,” he said.Gilchrist falls short of calling whether Dhoni and Yuvraj need to stay or go but says the players will know when its time.”I am not going to tell them what to do. They will know. I have been through it myself and you know as a player if you have it in your heart, the desire to continue on and that’s the discussion they will be able to have (with selectors),” he said.advertisementBut Australia’s greatest wicket-keeping all-rounder does opine, it eventually has to be the selectors’ call.”It’s the selectors who pick the team. Unless the players pull out themselves. Who knows MS and Yuvi may do that,” he said.last_img read more
