MS Dhoni’s repeated failures with his willow has been known by all for quite some time and former Pakistan skipper has a talk on the same.
It isn’t shocking now a days to see talks, debates and discussions revolving around the former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni. The subjects mostly focuses on his lost form and future plans on retirement. In a recent talk, former Pakistan skipper, Ramiz Raza also threw light on the repeated failures of MSD.
He referred to the golden days of his past history and compared it with his current situation. He focused on the fact that Dhoni is one the most successful skippers of all time with three major ICC titles – ICC World T20 title in 2007, followed by the ICC World Cup in 2011 and the ICC Champions trophy in 2013 under his regime.
The former skipper, however feels that things are no longer the same and the stuffs that worked for the last 15 years of his international career are shockingly no longer working.
“MS Dhoni would be flabbergasted as what he did for last 15 years isn’t working any more.”
MS Dhoni hung his boots in 2014 for the red ball format to focus on the limited overs but his repeated failures have failed to earn him a place in the squad now. Although his lightning fast action behind the stumps is still evergreen yet his batting skills have seen a steady downfall.
Seeing Dhoni’s scarce chances of featuring in the upcoming T20 world cup in 2020, he is also being rested for important tours and his replacement, Risabh Pant is being given ample opportunities to fill his boots in the meantime. Dhoni is currently in India and would join the ODI squad for the series against Australia.
Former Pakistan skipper, Shahid Afridi also heaped praises on the skipper by saying that the contributions made by him are indeed remarkable and hence there should be absolutely no pressure on him to decide his future in international cricket. He also stressed on the importance of Dhoni’s presence in the side for team India’s success in the upcoming 2019 world cup.
“What Dhoni has done for team India nobody else can and nobody has the right to tell him when to retire. 2019 Dhoni needs to be there for India to have good chance.”
