Even though the 35-year-old India’s all time best captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni might have stepped down from the limited-overs captaincy of Team India, but he will continue to be an important part of the one-day and T20 set-up in the days to come.
And MS Dhoni’s former coach Chanchal Bhattacharya believes that Dhoni’s timing to give up on captaincy is perfect, just like it was when he gave up the stewardship of the team in Test cricket.
As Speaking to the Pradesh18.com, Dhoni’s former coach Chanchal Bhattacharya said that, “Dhoni wants to play freely and that is the reason behind his decision,”
Chanchal Bhattacharya further added that the former Indian captain MSD is very serious about his cricketing career and has been practicing hard with the Jharkhand Ranji team.
“Not only did he practice a lot with the Jharkhand team, he has also been spending a lot of time in the gym to keep fighting fit for the rigours of international cricket.”
And according to Chanchal Bhattacharya the 35-year-old Ranchi man Dhoni doesn’t let anybody know about his personal decisions and that is the reason this news has come as a shock for everybody and believes that Dhoni can play till the 2019 ICC World Cup.
“If he doesn’t get injured and continues to play the way he is doing, Dhoni can represent India in the 2019 ICC World Cup in England,” Bhattacharya added.
MS Dhoni is one of the India’s most successful captain and has led the country to two world titles, one each in the 50 over and 20 over format respectively and his all contribution to the Indian Cricket are definitely not forgettable.
