MS Dhoni has arguably been one of the key members of the national side over the last decade and a half. He has been a pillar stone for the young Indian team now. Despite his contributions to Indian cricket, his place in the side is often questioned. He has been under the pressure to perform or perish from the national side.
Many cricketers, including skipper Virat Kohli, have slammed the critics for coming hard at MS Dhoni. Recently, another team member joined the list of people batting for the former Indian skipper. Ajinkya Rahane, as per the quotes in India Today, remarked that Dhoni’s contribution to the Indian team is immense. He noted that it will not be wrong to quote that MS Dhoni has arguably seen everything on the cricket field in his career.
“Definitely MS Dhoni has cricket left in him. He is taking care of his fitness, he is looking after his body, he is looking after his diet I mean and also his advices on the field to Virat is such a big difference. And he has a skill and he is so experienced that he has actually seen everything. I feel he is the guy and we are lucky to have him in our team. His advice means a lot to us, it taught us a lot and he definitely has cricket left in him,” quoted Ajinkya Rahane.
