The Indian coach Ravi Shastri has finally opened up about the future of the former Indian captain and the current wicketkeeper batsman MS Dhoni. Shastri cleared all the doubts about the availability of Dhoni till the 2019 World Cup.
In the recent Sri Lankan limited over series, MS Dhoni was in the great form and also show his fitness during the matches. He was unbeaten in the entire series and scored 162 runs.
Dhoni also completed his 100th Stumping in the One Day International format, which is the highest by any wicketkeeper of the world. After leaving from captaincy, the performance of MS is so good, as he easily plays till the next World Cup for India.
Ravi Shastri said,”Where else will you find a legend like M.S. Dhoni? Dhoni is in the same league as Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar or Kapil Dev. We have to respect his achievements.”
“A player is evaluated on the basis of his current form and fitness and Dhoni has both. If you see his wicketkeeping, he is the best in ODI cricket. His fitness is superb, he batted well in Sri Lanka. And let me tell you, it was just a trailer what you saw in Sri Lanka now wait for the movie,” he added.
As we all know that India is ready to take the Australian cricket team for the limited over series. The first match of the series is ready to play on 17th September. So it will be interesting to see the performance of this star Indian player in that series.
Shastri said,”If he continues to play like this, there no question of not having him in the team for the 2019 world cup. You can’t even think of a team without Dhoni.”
