Mahendra Singh Dhoni made a point during the Sri Lanka tour. Amidst all concerns about his form with the bat, he hammered a crucial couple of knocks to win it for the Indian Cricket Team in the island nation.
This was not all. MS Dhoni was equally good behind the stumps. He completed 100 stumpings in the ODIs. Meanwhile, India’s head coach Ravi Shastri praised the old warhorse, and termed him the best in the world.
“Dhoni is still the best wicketkeeper in the world and he is the quickest,” Shastri said. “The break from Test cricket has been great for Dhoni. He is an asset to the Indian team. He is an elder statesman in the dressing room.”
Shastri, earlier, had dispelled doubts over Dhoni’s future. He called him a massive influence in the dressing room.
“MS Dhoni is a massive influence on the team,” Shastri pointed out. “He is a living legend in the dressing room and an ornament to the game. By no means or by any stretch of imagination he is finished or even half finished yet.”
