The Men In Blue Can’t Afford To Look Beyond A Fit Mahendra Singh Dhoni:
On Wednesday, former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer said the men in Blue couldn’t step past a powerful Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Jaffer, who has just withdrawn from all cricket ways, claims the squad has an advantage over the real Indian skipper (Dhoni).
The right-hand batsman also said that Dhoni would take off the burden from KL Rahul behind the stumps.”If Dhoni is healthy and in shape, I think we cannot look past him as he is going to be an advantage behind the stumps and even lower down the order. It would reduce the burden to hold Rahul off, and India may even use Pant as a batsman if they choose a left-winger, “tweeted Jaffer.
If Dhoni is fit and in form I think we can't look beyond him as he'll be an asset behind the stumps and also lower down the order. It'll take the pressure of keeping off Rahul and India can play Pant as a batsman too if they want a lefty. #Dhoni #MSDhoni #IPL2020 pic.twitter.com/6ndDfdhkap
