Former Australia cricketer Dean Jones lauded MS Dhoni’s captaincy, saying former India skipper will always remain in his list of top five Indian players because of what he has done over the years.
MS Dhoni, who bowed out of international cricket with a simple yet emotional post on social media, will be leading the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020. Dhoni had reached Chennai for a pre-IPL training camp before making the unforeseen announcement.
“MS Dhoni is captain cool. He doesn’t sweat but he hasn’t played cricket for 14 months. He has had a camp back in Chennai. He is teaching some of the young guys back in quarantine some discipline because there is a lot of discipline in his game,” Dean Jones said in the latest episode of Star Sports’ chat show Cricket Connected.
He further added, “And as a captain, he is quite conservative in his tactics. But he waits for you to make a mistake and then the cobra goes for the squeeze. People will always remember what he has done. He will be in my top five Indian players of all time.”
People suggest that following the withdrawal of Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh, there is considerable pressure on the CSK captain who will be looking to win their 4th title. All around the nation, fans are eager to get a glimpse of World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni and see if the CSK skipper can lead the aging Chennai side to their record 4th IPL title in UAE.
