"He (Dhoni) has expressed his opinion and we should respect that," he added.
The Indian Team for the series against England was announced on Friday with Virat Kohli being made captain of both sides.
After announcing the team, Prasad was showered with different questions from the media. On Yuvraj Singh, he said," "We should appreciate how Yuvraj has played. He did extremely well in domestic cricket, which has been appreciated."
Prasad said that skipper Kohli spoke to the selection panel through Skype before selection.
