MS Dhoni, the name is enough to describe a complete cricketing brain. Dhoni, one of the best in the business – be it as a finisher or the role behind the stumps – has impressed as well as inspired everyone and continues to do so. Although he has announced his retirement from international cricket, he is still active in the Indian Premier League (IPL) where he plays for Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
There is rarely any cricket legend or an active or former player, who has not praised Dhoni for his batting prowess and tactical acumen. One of his admirers is former KKR player Rajat Bhatia. In SportsTiger’s show ‘Mid Wicket LIVE’, Bhatia praised Dhoni’s amazing knowledge of the game. He lauded him by saying, “Jahan humari soch khatam hoti hai, wahan MS Dhoni ki chaalu hoti hai (Where we stop thinking, MS Dhoni starts from there).”
Dhoni keeps everything quite simple: Rajat Bhatia
The former KKR all-rounder highlighted that Dhoni knows his team and that’s why youngsters perform well under his captaincy.
“Along with leadership, he has done homework too. He knows he has an experienced core group who have been playing for a long time and he doesn’t bring many changes to the team. He keeps everything quite simple,” said Bhatia, adding, “Even, they don’t have many team meetings, as well as they don’t discuss one topic much as well. Moreover, when a player is playing for Dhoni’s team, he knows his role and that is the reason why youngsters perform well under his captaincy.”
However, CSK failed to win the game against Mumbai on Saturday, courtesy of Kieron Pollard’s blistering knock of 87* runs that came off just 34 balls. Chasing a massive total of 219 runs, Mumbai Indians reached home on the last ball of the innings.
