“I think he could have gone on to play the T20 World Cup. The way India supports its stars, the way they love them, and recognizes them, they would have played him in T20s. But it was his personal choice,” Akhtar said in an interaction on Youtube channel ‘Bol Wasim’.

“But again he has won everything, a person from Ranchi has rocked the whole of India, what else do you need. At the end of the day, the world should remember you. And a nation like India, they will never let you get forgotten,” Akhtar added.

While being asked about Dhoni’s last game, he said, “

India will be geared up to give him a farewell game, trust me. If he doesn’t want it, it is a different thing, but entire India will be ready. The whole stadium will be booked for him to play a couple of T20 matches. He still has not retired from IPL. He is going to score big runs in the IPL.”

Akhtar also went on to say that if Prime Minister Narendra Modi requests Dhoni to play the world cup next year, he will not refuse the request.

“He still is not done. He is still going to play IPL for at least two more years. You never know, the Prime Minister may call him and request him to play the T20 World Cup. That is also possible,” he stated. 

“Imran Khan was asked by General Zia-ul-Haq not to leave cricket after 1987, and he played. You cannot say no to the Prime Minister,” Akhtar said.

MS Dhoni will be playing for Chennai Super Kings in the 13th edition of Indian Premier League that is scheduled to commence from September 19th in the UAE.
