Prasad backs young Pant for all three formats

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, July 21: Retirement is solely Mahendra Singh Dhoni�s prerogative but chairman of selectors MSK Prasad on Sunday clearly stated that young Rishabh Pant will be �groomed� as India�s first choice keeper across formats in the coming days.

Dhoni has not announced his retirement from international cricket amid widespread speculations but has made himself unavailable for the next two months as he will be serving his regiment in paramilitary forces.

Without divulging much on two-time World Cup winning captain�s future plans, Prasad said that a legend like Dhoni knows when to retire but the future course of Indian cricket will be charted by the selectors.

�Retirement is purely individual (decision). A legendary cricketer like Dhoni, he knows when to retire. What is the future course of action, that is in the hands of the selection committee. I don�t think we need to discuss anything more on it. First of all he is not available. Second, we have already started grooming youngsters,� Prasad said at the media conference. � PTI
