Why MS Dhoni was not selected for the ICC Hall of Fame?
Then the question must have arisen in everyone’s mind as to why MS Dhoni was not selected for the ICC Hall of Fame even after announcing his retirement. Now the ICC has stated the reason. The International Cricket Council has made it clear that the ICC Hall of Fame award is given to players who have completed five years of retirement. That’s why ICC’s Sachin Tendulkar was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2019, followed by Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s joining as a captain and a wicketkeeper-batsman is remembered not only in India but in the entire cricket world. Whose qualifications have been recognized by the entire cricket world? Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the only captain in the world of cricket to have won three major ICC events, the ODI World Cup, the T20 World Cup, and the Champions Trophy, is in fact a big contender for all the honors of the ICC.
But shortly after the retirement of MS, the ICC selected three cricketers for the ICC Hall of Fame, including Jacques Kallis, Zaheer Abbas, and women’s cricketer Lisa Sthalekar. On the other hand, Mahendra Singh Dhoni does not have a name.
