Well, the presence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni has always been a great thing for the Indian National Cricket Team. His presence is going to be the major booster for the team in the upcoming edition of ICC World Cup 2019. Meanwhile, the former Test specialist VVS Laxman showers words of praise of MS Dhoni.
MS Dhoni carried the burden of the Indian cricket over the years and the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 would be his final weight. With the experience in his kitty, MS Dhoni will enter into the tournament with a lot of expectations on his shoulder.
MS Dhoni will have a wonderful World Cup – VVS Laxman
Speaking to Hindustan Times, VVS Laxman quoted that the presence of MS Dhoni is the must for the Indian team. He explained that MS Dhoni’s partnership with Virat Kohli has always been brilliant for the team. He is hopeful of Mahendra Singh Dhoni having a good time in the grand event.
”He is a very important member of this team. Not only as a batsman or keeper, but he also plays the role of a mentor. He has got abundant experience and he gets the best out of the players. He is a great asset to this team, and if he performs, it will give a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the team. I have a feeling he will have a wonderful World Cup.”
Further, he went on to add saying that MS Dhoni guidance to the bowlers will be handy for the team. VVS Laxman strongly believes that each member in the tournament will get great learning from the former skipper of India.
”Be it the Dhoni-Virat combination or Dhoni-bowlers, he almost (always) tells them where to bowl, just that bonding between Dhoni and all the players is very healthy. He is a great player, he was an exceptional captain, and I am sure the team management will use his experience and all players will benefit.”
Well, as VVS Laxman said, Dhoni’s form will be crucial for the team. His batting in the middle-order will be the key for India during the crunch times of the tournament. Dhoni’s guidance to the spinners during the course of the match will also be a great advantage.
Currently, MS Dhoni is plying his trade for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League 2019. He has been out from the team in the last game owing to back spasm. Hopefully, it won’t trouble him in the showpiece event.
