The 38-year-old Dhoni has not officially retired from worldwide cricket but has not played for India since the World Cup and instead made a decision to serve a term in the country's military.

Leading diary brand company Amul has won hearts with its latest cartoon-based advertisement on Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President-elect Sourav Ganguly.

"I need to find out from the selectors when I meet them next", Ganguly told reporters. It's not my opinion.

Ireland and other European Union members say any checks in Ireland are unacceptable. DUP leader Arlene Foster said the party had not yet consented to a deal.

Asked if a cricketer can take such a long break, he said: "I was nowhere in picture (when it transpired)". The MSK Prasadled selection committee, which is approaching the end of its tenure, is keen to try out a couple of new faces ahead of the T20 World Cup scheduled in Australia next year. The coach will be there, but not the captain. "Something that we will look to relive our rivalries on the field and as you must have picked we are good friends off the field - we might be pushing each other on field and competing really hard but off the field we are good friends and that is what matters..." The meeting is scheduled in Mumbai on October 24, wherein the selectors are likely to convey that Indian cricket has moved on from Mahendra Singh Dhoni. "It is too early for me to comment on how we will work on this, but let me take office and then we will discuss this with every member", he said. "They'll decide on the way forward". Even VVS Laxman, who is touted to be close to Ganguly, wished "the Prince of Kolkata" on social media and said that he has got no doubt that under Dada's leadership, Indian Cricket will continue to prosper. "What he [Dhoni] wants to do, what he doesn't [want] to do".

Rashid Latif also went onto compare Ganguly with Bengal leaders and freedom fighters.
