MS Dhoni made a big name for himself by making the country proud with his achievements after coming from the cricketing backwaters of Ranchi. He has achieved immense success as a player and also grew up to be one of the most successful captains and achieved almost everything the ICC tournaments had to offer.
All the success has made him one of the most influential person on the cricketing circuit but he was not the same when he was first introduced to the national team. Besides that, MS Dhoni has also been the go-to man for his teammates whenever he is on the field.
MS Dhoni Will Provide Help To Virat Kohli With His Cricketing Acumen: Wasim Jaffer
MS Dhoni understands the game well. He knows the strength of the side and backs his players accordingly. He does not takes any kind of frivolous decisions and likes to maintain his calm. It is due to these qualities Dhoni comes up as one of the most calm and composed character on the cricket field.
Domestic legend Wasim Jaffer believes that the former India captain can still help Virat Kohli with his cricketing knowledge and the decision to retire completely relies on him. He, however, pointed out that a clear sense about his fitness will be displayed if the IPL takes place. But Dhoni still remains a ‘lethal’ weapon in the shortest format.
“See, I think it is up to MS Dhoni. People always make perceptions but that doesn’t matter. He is ready to play the IPL. We all know he was working hard at the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) nets. After IPL, we might get a clear picture regarding his form, fitness, etc. His creditability can never be questioned. Plus, he is lethal in T20 cricket,” Wasim Jaffer told Times Now.
“Moreover, he will provide so much help to Virat Kohli with his cricketing acumen. When he has not been there, we see many DRS reviews turn out to be wrong. So, he brings a lot to the table. No doubt!,” he added.
Veteran Dhoni has represented India in 350 ODIs, 90 Tests and 98 matches in the shortest format.
