Talking about the former Indian skipper MS Dhoni, Shah Rukh had said Dhoni doesn’t need to do sledging ever. His mind is ticking so fast, I am sure batsmen could hear that. He also added that Dhoni is that guy who can play the last bet, without anyone realising gets a bowler that you never expected to bowl the final over like in the world T20 ( referring to the 2007 ICC T20I World Cup final, where he had asked Joginder Sharma to bowl the final over). He named Mahi “Baazigar” for his decision-making skills on the field, that comes off well more often than not.

A fan also asked him to give his best wishes to the Indian team since they will face England in the 2nd T20I tomorrow having lost the first match. SRK said, ‘India has to win tomorrow’

This is not the first time a Bollywood actor has spoken in awe for the former Indian skipper. Earlier, when MS Dhoni had stepped down from the captaincy post, Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan had lauded his decision and written a couple of lines for him. Amitabh had cited that Dhoni has the character traits of a true leader.

He did not let his ego come in between and is ready to play under the leadership of someone else. He had lauded Dhoni’s decision to step down as the captain. He had tweeted, “T 2494 – So MS Dhoni retires from Captaincy, but open for selection .. this true quality of a leader .. !! better ‘why’ than face ‘why not’.”
