Former Indian team selector Roger Binny has said that the time has come for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to make way for the youth. Many young players are ready to knock in the India team. Dhoni does not have the same fitness as before. Also, he has not been the best player as before. It is useless to believe his fitness.
Dhoni played the last match in the semi-finals of One Day World Cup in July 2019. In this match, the Indian team was defeated at the hands of New Zealand. Under his captaincy, Dhoni has won the country in T20 in 2007 and ODI World Cup in 2011 and Champions Trophy in 2013.
Dhoni has lost his former fitness
“Looking at the last few seasons, he (Dhoni) seems to have spent his best cricket time,” Binny told Sportskeeper. With their strength and understanding, they have also lost the ability to win the lost match. Also, the matter of motivating the youth is no longer the same. He has also lost his earlier fitness. On the other hand, very young players are coming at this time. Actually, his best time has passed. They are capable of making decisions about themselves. “
Dhoni honors senior players
Binny said, “Dhoni respects the senior players too much. Obey his words. Dhoni is down to earth. Dhoni used to come and discuss what he wanted. “Binny was a selector of India team in 2012. Then Dhoni was the captain of the team. Binny said, “They used to live on the field. We had to give them the team they wanted. They did not demand for this. It was nice working with him. We never had any argument or debate between us about anything. “
Dhoni won Chennai IPL title 3 times
Mahi has scored 4876 in 90 Tests and 10773 runs in 350 ODIs so far. He has 1617 runs in 98 T20s and 4432 runs in 190 matches of IPL. Dhoni retired from Test cricket in 2015. He has won the Chennai Super Kings 3 times IPL title under his captaincy.
Dhoni is in form, he must play: Gambhir
Recently, Gambhir spoke on Star Sports’ cricket connected show, “Age is just number one.” I believe that if Dhoni is hitting the ball well, if he is in good form and is enjoying the game. If they believe that by batting at number 6 or 7, they can win the country, then they must play. “
