ICC World Cup 2019: MS Dhoni Did What Was Right For India – Sachin Tendulkar On Dhoni’s Innings Against Bangladesh
On Tuesday, MS Dhoni was once again criticised for his slow knock against Bangladesh. The fans and a few experts felt that MS Dhoni would have been much better than he was during his knock against Bangladesh. Meanwhile, Sachin Tendulkar comes in support of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
India defended 314 against a spirited Bangladesh and became the 2nd team after Australia to reach the semi-finals of World Cup 2019. Dhoni has taken a lot of flak for his poor strike rate in this World Cup. MS Dhoni was booed against Afghanistan and against England, Nasser Hussain and Sourav Ganguly said they were baffled with his go-slow approach in a steep chase.
MS Dhoni drew criticism for his knock of 33-ball 35 against Bangladesh in the World Cup match at Edgbaston on Tuesday once again. Fans and experts all seemed to agree that Dhoni’s strike rate was found to be wanting again.
Meanwhile, Sachin Tendulkar, who had previously questioned Dhoni’s approach in the match against Afghanistan, has now come forward and stated that Dhoni played an important knock, and did what was needed for the team.
For MS Dhoni, It is more about the team – Sachin Tendulkar
Further, he went on to add saying that he responded to the need of the hour. Sachin Tendulkar feels that one of the batsmen need to play in such a manner in order to stay in a protective zone.
“I felt it was an important inning and Dhoni did exactly what was right for the team. If he stays till the 50th over, he can help other guys around him. He is expected to do that and he did that,” Sachin Tendulkar said.
“For him, it is more about the team. Whatever is the need of the hour, one needs to do that and on Tuesday, he did that perfectly,” Sachin added while speaking to Inda Today.
Notably, Dhoni’s strike rate of 120.4 is the fifth lowest at the death overs (40 and 50) in World Cup 2019. Only Kagiso Rabada (92), Kedar Jadhav (102), Mushfiqur Rahim (102) and James Neesham (117.1) have poorer strike rates than Dhoni for players who have played at least 50 balls at the death.
