Chief Selector M S K Prasad also denied all the rumours saying that there is no update on Dhoni's retirement.

Prasad announced the India squad for the Test series against South Africa at a press conference here. When he was asked if there was any update on Dhoni's retirement, Prasad said: "No, absolutely not. I am really surprised to hear that."

A flurry of speculations emerged about Dhoni's retirement after India skipper Virat Kohli shared a picture with Dhoni.

Kohli captioned the picture as, "A game I can never forget. Special night. This man, made me run like in a fitness test @msdhoni."
