We have oodles of talent in India but there will never be another MS Dhoni, not ever in the history of Indian cricket. The calmness with which he took the field will never be seen again. The aura and stature of MS Dhoni are all but impossible to match. He is one of the shrewdest cricketing brains to have ever embraced this beautiful game. Meanwhile, there is speculation that MS Dhoni might retire any time soon. In fact, there is no doubt that it is going to leave a big void in the Indian team.
However, the promise of Indian cricket looks promising as the young guns are coming through to the top level. We take a look at four players who can replace MS Dhoni post his retirement.
1. Ishan Kishan
The talented southpaw had led India Under-19 side to the final of the World Cup in 2016. However, the team could not cross the last hurdle against West Indies Under-19 team. The left-hander has shown the promise to deliver the goods at a big stage. However, there is no doubt the Jharkhand batsman needs to work on his temperament as he can play rash shots which might suit the match situations.
Kishan has scored 2538 runs in the first-class format at an average of 39.04. The left-hander has scored 1780 runs in the 50 ODI matches at an average of 37.87. Kishan has scored 605 in the 37 matches at an average of 21.05 in the IPL.
