NEW DELHI - Long-serving India wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni may quit one-day internationals soon but could still be in contention for a place in the country's squad for the Twenty20 World Cup, coach Ravi Shastri said.
Dhoni, who will turn 39 in July, quit test cricket in 2014 and has not played for India since taking a break after the team's semi-finals exit at the 50-overs World Cup in July last year.
The phlegmatic former India captain has steadfastly refused to elaborate on his future and is set to return to action at the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is likely to begin in March.
A good outing in the franchise-based Twenty20 league could see him join Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson in a three-way race for the stumper's role in the World Cup in Australia.
"He has finished (playing) test match cricket. In all probability, he will finish one-day cricket. At his age I think, the only format he will want to play is T20," Shastri told CNN-News18 channel.
