For the last few days, much speculation is being made about the future of the former captain of Team India. Dhoni’s retirement is the biggest topic in Indian cricket today. But do you remember that if the Coronavirus had not caused havoc, then the IPL would not have been postponed, and all of us would have been watching Dhoni hitting fours and sixes at this time.
They say that if fate is allowed something else then your path is not easy and the same happened with Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Where cricket experts were talking about Dhoni’s return to Team India after the IPL and where the IPL was postponed. In such a situation, Dhoni’s close friend and Indian team batsman has revealed that Dhoni was very keen on IPL 2020 and his preparation was much different than before.
Talking about Dhoni’s preparation, Raina said, “This time Dhoni was making completely different preparations for the IPL. When Dhoni arrived in Chennai for practice, he was accompanied by Ambati Rayudu, myself and Murali Vijay, who were batting for 2 to 4 hours in a group. But this time he was not tired of batting at all. He used to do his gym session every morning in the morning, followed by about three hours in the evening. When you spend a whole day at the gym, nets for batting and fielding practice, the next day you feel some stretch in your body. ‘
Raina further said, ‘We have now reached that stage of age where our body has slowed down a bit and for this you have to try something else. In this case, a total of 5 hours of practice makes you fully prepared for a 4-hour match. I have played a lot with him at both Team India and IPL level. But this time I have never seen Dhoni like he was preparing. Once the IPL was there, people would have seen Dhoni in a different way this time. ‘
