Sydney, Jan 5: MS Dhoni could come out of retirement and wear the big gloves in the fourth and final Test against Australia starting tomorrow here at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
Dhoni, who stunned everyone by quitting the five-day game after the third Test in Melbourne last week, may play in India whites again in case there is an injury to Wriddhiman Saha. (Kohli era begins in Sydney)
"Dhoni is the second keeper in the squad as of now. So God forbid if something happens to Saha on the morning of the match, obviously he will have to step in because I can't keep wicket," Kohli said on Monday.
Dhoni retired after playing 90 Tests, 60 of them as captain. He has stayed back with the team.
Australia have clinched the four-Test series 2-0 after wins in Adelaide and Brisbane. The third Test in Melbourne was drawn.
After the Test series, India play a ODI tri-series with Australia and England.
