Cape Town - New BCCI president Sourav Ganguly said he will need to meet with the national selectors to find out if MS Dhoni will be selected for India again.

The 38-year-old Dhoni has not officially retired from international cricket but has not played for India since the World Cup and instead decided to serve a term in the country's military.

Ganguly, who will take charge of the BCCI on 23 October, was asked about the future of Dhoni but the former India skipper said he would need to meet the selectors to find out if there were any arrangements made.

"I need to find out from the selectors when I meet them next," Ganguly told reporters.

"We should find out what the selectors think. It's not my opinion. I was nowhere in the picture during all these days.

"My first selection committee meeting will be on the 24th. The coach will be there, but not the captain.

"What matters is what Dhoni wants. Maybe, there is clarity between Dhoni and the selectors, but I do not know of it as yet.

"Neither side has discussed anything with me. They'll decide on the way forward."

When asked if he will speak to Dhoni, Ganguly said he might if he needs to. "What he [Dhoni] wants to do, what he doesn't [want] to do."
