Mohammad Kaif comes up with the perfect statement describing MS Dhoni’s position in the Indian team for World Cup

After Sunil Gavaskar and Head Coach Ravi Shastri, former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif has described MS Dhoni’s position in the Indian team.

As India heads up for their final series against Australia before the 2019 World Cup, it will be all tests and trails for the selectors before the final showdown. While the Men in blue seems to be perfect in ever unit since the Champions Trophy 2017, they still have to figure out the middle order saga. Many of the biggies suggested several names for the number 4 position, however the best name for the spot for many is MS Dhoni.

Though Dhoni had a little tough time in 2018, he shattered the critics with his exemplary performance against Australia, where he scored three half-centuries consecutively followed by player of the series award in India’s historic 2-1 win over Australia Down Under. He also played some fair innings verses New Zealand in the limited overs game as India managed to clinch the five match ODI series against the Kiwis 4-1.

In a recent interview with Hindustan times, former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif mentioned that Dhoni was going to be a crucial player for India at the World Cup.  

“Dhoni has been the key player in this side. He is not the captain, but Virat Kohli trusts Dhoni to help him with decisions in crucial situations. The team revolves around Dhoni; the young bowlers go to Dhoni. The captain, when he is in trouble, he goes to Dhoni. The current form of Dhoni has been brilliant – the way he played in Australia was great. With Kohli, Dhoni and other players in form, we have a great chance to win the World Cup,” Kaif said.

AUTHOR’S TAKE:

Despite the middle-order trouble, Team India overall is quite sorted in every unit. The Men in Blue are the ICC’s number-two ranked ODI team. The team has a combination of everything, from young Turks who have enthusiasm and excitement to win, the skipper, an all time learner and run machine for India to a master in mind games and a tank of experience, MS Dhoni. The combination of these three makes India one of the hot favorites as far as this year’s World Cup is concerned.
