IPL 2021: Ms dhoni is the greatest skipper ever in the limited-overs, says Ravi Shastri
Indian head coach Ravi Shastri heaped a bundle of praises on the former Indian captain MS Dhoni. He mentioned during a recent interview that Dhoni has been the best captain so far when it comes to white-ball cricket. He said that his greatness in the Limited-over cricket reflects in the record that he made over the course of his career and added that Dhoni has achieved everything that is there to achieve for a skipper.
The Indian cricket team will be busy in the T20 world cup this October. It will be the last T20 world cup of the Indian team under Ravi Shastri as a coach. In this T20 world cup, Ms dhoni has been appointed the mentor of the Indian team. He along with Ravi Shastri will be mentoring the Indian team in the T20 world cup.
He hailed Dhoni for his legendary records saying:
“Dhoni is the greatest white-ball captain ever. Just look at his record in ICC tournaments. What has he not won? IPL, Champions League, all ICC tournaments, two World Cups. There is no one close to him when it comes to white-ball cricket. He has to be the greatest. King Kong, you can call him that fashion.”
Shastri said that dhoni’s calmness and cool attitude even in the most pressured situations is something that sets him apart from other players.
“When you see Dhoni captaining aside, and you see Chennai Super Kings (CSK), there’s that assurance and calmness of things in control. The other side might me whacking sixes or fours but you still get the feeling there is this composure and control,”
Currently, Dhoni is the captain of the Chennai super kings. In the latest edition, under his leadership, CSK has managed to enter into the playoffs by defeating Sunriser Hyderabad.
Upon asking about the CSK, Shastri stated that Dhoni will be keen on not losing the momentum and dhoni will be trying to get the title for the team. He said:
“The ball is in CSK’s court, how they want to play. They have qualified, they are going to finish 1 or 2, there is no question about that. It’s how Dhoni sees it. Does he want to rest players or does he want to try one or two players for the game? The endeavor would be to win. They would start as favorites, but no one likes to lose momentum.”
