With the 2019 World Cup just a couple of years away, the debate over the future of MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh rages on.
Speaking about the same, the chairman of the national selection panel, MSK Prasad, was quoted as saying in a Wisden India report, "We will see, we need to talk on that. We will have to take a decision, let s see how it goes. We all know who can add value.
“Again, we will go slot by slot. We should know when to take a call. It s not that suddenly you take a call and you are nowhere. You can t be totally unprepared, so we need to be balanced on that aspect,” he added.
Prasad asserted that the World Cup preparations are in full swing. "The best thing that happened from our point of view was that the Champions Trophy was in England. That has really opened our mind in many aspects. We know what our real strengths are. Our team did really well.
“There are a few shortcomings that we have noticed and maybe we will fix those shortcomings in the next 18 to 20 months that we have leading up to the World Cup," Prasad said.
Prasad played a few ODIs and Tests on the forgettable 2000 tour of Australia, which finished his international career.
