MS Dhoni’s place in the team was questioned last year due to his poor form with the bat and not behind the stumps. His wicket-keeping has no match in the cricketing world at the moment and the veteran has proved it time and again. His understanding with India’s spin-twins Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav is well known and the duo more often than not credit their success to Dhoni.
Dhoni is often seen giving tips to the bowlers, especially spinners while keeping close to the stumps. His comments are always heard in the stump mics and those are the testament to the fact of his importance in the team. While Dhoni – the batsman – has also found his mojo back at the right time, the Men in Blue look a team to beat now in the upcoming World Cup.
We are lucky to have him
Kuldeep Yadav, in a conversation with the Indian Express, was all praise of MS Dhoni and felt that the team is lucky to have him. More than anything, Kuldeep was in awe of his wicketkeeping skills and the way he takes the bails off in a flash. He termed that ability of Dhoni as extraordinary and also called him a game-changer.
“Mahi bhai has vast experience and keeps telling us the nitty-gritty of the game. He is like a game changer and we are lucky to have him in our team. But what I find most extraordinary about him is the speed in which he dislodges the stumps. It is simply unbelievable and honestly, I have never played with someone with such quick glovework,” the chinaman said.
Kuldeep Yadav, meanwhile, is looking forward to the upcoming five-match ODI series against Australia which starts on March 2. He has been rested from the two T20 Internationals which precede and will be played on February 24 and 28.
