Nowadays the talk of the town is all about former skipper MS Dhoni’s retirement. He helped the Men in Blue to win the 2007 World T20, 2011 World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy. But after he retired from captaincy, India failed to win any ICC tournament.
The only odd occasion was the 2018 Asia Cup, which India won under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy. Can Dhoni break this jinx of India once again? Will Captain Cool take a call on his career or will he surprise everyone with another bold move?

ToggleHere are 5 reasons why Dhoni can be used as opener in T20s:
1. Takes time to settle before going for big shots
In the last couple of years, the playing style of Dhoni has changed a lot. Previously he played as a finisher, hitting big shots from the word ‘go’. But now he likes to take his time before going for big shots.
Even then his calculations has been right and he has done a decent job. Had it not been for Martin Guptill’s brilliant throw, MSD would surely have taken India to World Cup finals. Once Dhoni gets settled, he can brutally assault any bowler.
For time being, it seems the management is giving Rishabh Pant some time. But as Dhoni hasn’t announced retirement, he is still in the plans. A set MSD can accelerate the innings as well as hold the other end.
