In a surprise from BCCI, MS Dhoni is back

NEW DELHI - The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made a surprise announcement of return of MS Dhoni to the T20 squad.

BCCI announced the One-Day International (ODI) and T20 squads for the series against Australia and New Zealand. With MS Dhoni’s name added to India's T20 and ODI squad list against New Zealand, netizens have come out and poured their love for the former Indian skipper.

Dhoni return comes as a surprise since he was dropped from the T20s against Australia only last month.

However, justifying the 37-year-old's selection, a BCCI official, on conditions of anonymity, told PTI, "Since there are only eight ODIs (three against Australia and five against New Zealand), selectors want to give MS as much game time as possible (before the World Cup).

Three T20Is means 11 international matches through the next one month."
