Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar praise Dhoni and names him as the best captain in the IPL history, saying “There hasn’t been a captain like him and will never be one like him in future”.
Sunil Gavaskar Praise Dhoni
MS Dhoni completes 200 matches as a captain of CSK in the match against Rajasthan Royals in Chennai on April 12, where CSK lost the match by three runs.
“CSK know how to get out of tough situations. This has been possible only under MS Dhoni’s captaincy. Captaining 200 matches is very difficult. Captaining so many matches is a burden and it could have affected his performance as well,” Gavaskar, himself a former India captain, said.
“But Mahi is different. He is a different captain. There hasn’t been a captain like him and there will never be one like him in the future,” said Gavaskar in a release from IPL broadcasters.
MS Dhoni remains an integral part of the Chennai Super Kings since the beginning of the IPL. Technically, MSD played 214 matches as the captain of the team. During CSK’s 2 years ban, MSD led the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiants in the 2016 season in 14 matches.
Gavaskar Praises Kohli
Gavaskar also praised star batter Virat Kohli for giving his side Royal Challengers Bangalore a flying start in their matches so far this season.
“Virat Kohli is giving RCB flying starts at the start of the innings. He deserves a lot of credit for the starts RCB is getting and the runs the team is managing to post on the board because of his starts. These are good signs for RCB.”
