Chairman of selectors MSK Prasad drew flak on Twitter for his comments on former skipper MS Dhoni’s position in India’s ODI team.

Prasad on Monday had said that Dhoni’s future is being discussed at selection meetings but they will look at alternatives only if the Jharkhand dasher doesn’t deliver.

After explaining Yuvraj Singh’s omission, Prasad was asked about Dhoni and he replied:c”You have been fair and I will be honest. Discussions happen about everybody. It is not just MS. When we pick, when we talk about combinations, we talk about everybody. You will also see in times to come.”

Asked about Dhoni’s future, the chairman said that it’s difficult to predict but till he is delivering for the team, it shouldn’t be a problem.

“You never know. We don’t say it is an automatic thing (selection) but we will see. We are all stakeholders. We all want the Indian team to do well. If he is delivering, why not? If he is not, we will have to look at alternatives,” Prasad answered in a pragmatic manner.

The comments, however, didn’t go down well with Dhoni’s fans.
