IT IS VERY TOUGH TO BEAT WESTINDIES IN THE SHORTER FORMAT OF THE GAME: M.S DHONI

Mahendra Singh Dhoni the captain of the limited overs format is up with the mindset that it will be difficult to beat them, where are powerful hitters and all-rounders in the team. As they are the current T20 champion and their team fits completely for this format of the game.

 

Captain cool also said when being asked that, it will be a difficult ask for the Indian side to face the explosive batting order of the West Indies team, where two matches will be played subsequently on 27th and 28th respectively.

 

"West Indies is an extraordinary team in the limited-overs format," Dhoni told reporters on the eve of the first T20I. "Sometimes having one all-rounder can give you balance. They have two or three. Power-hitters become crucial in the smaller formats, and they have so many of them. They also play an entertaining brand of cricket, so it will be a challenge for us."

 

Dhoni showed up his curiosity to play under Kumble as he the new head coach for India, and said he is a really hardworking person and Dhoni is looking forward to join hands with him the shortest format and to help each other to reach the goals.

 

 

"He is a straightforward guy who will tell you what he has to on your face," Dhoni said. "I learnt a lot from him while playing with him. One of the things that struck me was how he planned dismissals and went about his game. I was amazed at his consistency and the thinking aspect he brought to the game. It will also help him as a coach because you can't have the same plan across different formats.


"I feel, the more time I spend with him, the more I'll get to know him. I've known him as a player. Now, I will know him as a coach. We've seen previously how people are slightly different in both cases. He's calm, composed and confident, and that will only help the team," he added.
