New Delhi: Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni Saturday made himself “unavailable” for the tour of West Indies but ruled out immediate retirement a day before the selectors meet in Mumbai to pick the squads for the upcoming away series. Amid mounting speculation around his international retirement after India’s semi-final exit from the recent World Cup, Dhoni has told the BCCI that he will take a two-month sabbatical from the game to serve his paramilitary regiment.Dhoni is an Honorary Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Regiment of the Territorial Army,“We would like to clarify three things. MS Dhoni is not retiring from cricket right now. He is taking a two month sabbatical to serve his paramilitary regiment which he had committed much earlier. We have now intimated his decision to skipper Virat Kohli and chairman of selectors MSK Prasad,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on Saturday.The 38-year-old Dhoni’s refusal to take retirement now leaves the ball in the court of the selectors, who were expected to drop him from the squad for the West Indies. India will play three T20 Internationals, as many ODIs and two Tests in the tour starting August 3.It is believed that the selection committee chaired by MSK Prasad wants to move forward with an eye on future but they would also like to get a sense of where the Indian captain stands on this issue.“The selection committee has always been clear on one issue. They have no right to tell anyone irrespective of their stature as to when they should call it quits but when it comes to team selection, it remains their domain,” a senior BCCI official said.With Dhoni pulling out of the tour, Rishabh Pant is expected to be first wicketkeeper in all three formats while Wriddhiman Saha will be Pant’s understudy in the Tests.From now, the focus will be more on T20 cricket keeping the World T20 in mind, which is scheduled to be held in Australia next year.India will be playing a lot of bilateral three-match T20 series in run-up to the global meet and with Dhoni expected to play one more season of IPL with Chennai Super Kings, things are a bit tricky at the moment.There are a few questions that the selectors need to answer.Whether they see Dhoni playing till World T20? If the answer is yes, are they willing to give him 15 to 18 T20s during the phase as a keeper-batsman?If that answer is also yes, it would boil down to whether skipper Virat Kohli sees him as a batsman in T20s where keeping isn’t the primary skill required.With Dhoni’s ever-declining hitting abilities, can he come in at Nos 6 or 7 where he might, at best, get 6 to 8 balls in most games and even less in some?If that answer is also yes, the next question that would crop up is if he can hit the likes of Jofra Archer, Jason Behrendorff or Mohammed Amir straightaway in the slog overs.There is a case about Dhoni’s stellar success in death overs at the IPL. He always gets one weak Indian bowler—say a Mohammed Siraj, Harshal Patel or Dhawal Kulkarni or Sandeep Sharma from whom he scores those 15 to 20-run overs.But would that be possible against a Lockie Ferguson or a Pat Cummins?The current selection committee’s term ends in October when the BCCI elections are scheduled and they would like to put a transition phase in place in consonance with what the captain and the coach want.However, once the board members take over after the elections and if Dhoni decides to stick with his decision of not retiring, there could be some twists and turns in the coming months.Till then, all roads lead to the BCCI headquarters on Sunday where Prasad will address the most defining press conference of his eventful tenure.

Facebook Twitter Google+ Dina Hegab sat in her class on Monday night and kept refreshing her phone. She tried to be courteous to the others presenting but was anxious to find out Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament seed and opponent. At 6:48 p.m., as “Syracuse” appeared underneath Wisconsin on the selection show board, Hegab’s questions were answered.After falling to then-No. 1 North Carolina in the ACC tournament quarterfinals, the Orange earned the two-seed in Stanford’s region. No. 31 Syracuse (13-12, 5-9 Atlantic Coast) will face No. 35 Wisconsin (18-5, 9-2 Big 10) in a first-round match Saturday at 12 p.m.Here’s what to know before Saturday’s matchup.Last time they played: This is the first-ever meeting between the Badgers and SU. Earlier in the season, the Orange knocked off then-No. 9 Michigan 4-2 and lost to then-No. 16 Ohio State 5-2 in their first two matchups against Big Ten opponents this season.The Wisconsin Report: The Badgers enter Saturday’s match winners of five of their last seven matches. Wisconsin lost to No. 30 Illinois 4-0 in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament last Saturday but still earned its first bid to the NCAA Tournament since 2005. No. 88 Sara Castellano held the top singles slot for all 23 matches this season and enters with a 14-7 record, highest of her career. The redshirt senior transferred from Kansas State after two seasons and played at second singles last season before jumping to the top spot.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWisconsin and Syracuse had two opponents in common this year: OSU and Purdue. The Badgers lost to the Buckeyes 6-1 and defeated the Boilermakers 5-2; the Orange also defeated the Boilermakers, 4-3, to clinch a spot in the ITA National Indoor Team Championship.How Syracuse Beats Wisconsin: It starts with the doubles point. All season, SU head coach Younes Limam has stressed the importance of that first point, one that Syracuse has won only nine times. In matches it wins the doubles point this season, SU is undefeated. In the ACC tournament, Limam split up his second and third pairs, despite Sonya Treshcheva and Sofya Golubovskaya’s then-No. 84 ranking, but still lost the point in both matches. Gabriela Knutson and Miranda Ramirez, SU’s top pairing, peaked at No. 8 in the ITA doubles rankings last season and became the first All-American doubles pairing in program history, but are just 13-10 this season with a high ranking of No. 55. At one point during ACC play, the duo lost five consecutive matches. By taking the doubles point, it relives the pressure to produce four singles victories, something the Orange have done only four times since conference play started on Feb. 22.Stat to Know: 5 — The number of Wisconsin players who have tallied more than 14 wins in singles, compared to three from SU. After Syracuse’s first match against Brown on Jan. 19, and after many others that followed, Limam praised the Orange’s depth. He said that SU is capable of picking up points at any singles slot. However, in the ACC tournament, the Orange went just 2-6 at its bottom-four singles slots.Player to Watch: Ava MarkhamThe holder of Wisconsin’s best singles record this season isn’t Castellano, it’s Markham’s 19-4 mark at fourth and fifth singles — primarily fourth — that holds the top spot. Markham, a freshman from Demarest, New Jersey was a five-star recruit and ranked No. 43 in her class, according to tennisrecruiting.net. For 17 of Syracuse’s 25 matches, that fourth spot has been held by Guzal Yusupova, a junior transfer from Washington State, and her 8-9 record. All together, that fourth singles slot is 10-14 for the season, one that will likely need a win on Saturday for the Orange to advance past the first round.
