M.S. Dhoni has been away from cricket since July 2019 and when former cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who declared his retirement early in June this year was asked about the ex-skipper, his reply to it was, “I don’t know boss. You should ask your great selectors when you meet them. That’s their call, not mine,”

“We do need better selectors, for sure. Selectors’ job is not easy. Whenever they select 15 players, there will be talks that what will happen to the other 15. It’s a difficult job but their thinking in terms of modern-day cricket is not up to the mark. It’s my opinion,” Yuvraj said.

Yuvi also spoke about players taking a break from the game due to mental health issues. Mental health is a sensitive issue in our country and people tend not to talk about it openly. Recently, Australian cricketer, Glenn Maxwell took a break from the game owing to the mental health issues he is facing.

“We see outside India, if players are fatigued and tired mentally, like is the case with (Glenn) Maxwell, he has taken a break because he is feeling it.”

“Our players can’t do that because they fear they may lose their place. So a players’ association is very important,” he added.

It was good of Yuvraj to talk about these tabooed issues. This also gives us an insight into how the team selection takes place in our country and what sort of pressure our players go through.
