Former England skipper Nasser Hussain stated that Indian cricket will now realise the actual worth of MS Dhoni after he has gone. MS Dhoni’s retirement from international cricket has left a big void in Team India.
His lightning-quick reflexes behind the stumps and his genius decisions on the field will be very hard to find an apt replacement for a time being. He retired as the only captain to win all major ICC trophies (ODI World Cup, T20 World Cup, and Champions Trophy).
The cricketing world salutes MS Dhoni for the name he made for himself and his country at the biggest stage of the sport of cricket. MS Dhoni played his last game in the Indian colours during the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Nasser Hussain Hailed MS Dhoni As The Best White Ball Captain There Has Ever Been
The former England skipper has hailed MS Dhoni for his out of the world skills and ingenious captaincy.
“Quickest gloves in the world, the best finisher in the world and for me the best white-ball captain there has ever been, whether it be for Chennai or for India. The man was so cool, so calm under pressure,” Nasser Hussain said.
“I think Indian cricket will only realise how good MS Dhoni was now that he has gone. Enjoy your retirement MS,”he added.
MS Dhoni’s Staggering Numbers For Team India:
MSD has astonishing numbers for team India in 538 matches he has scored 17,266 runs, 16 centuries and 108 fifties. The former team India skipper had an early retirement from Test cricket back in 2014. He made 90 appearances in red-ball cricket to score 4876 runs.
He carried on playing the other two formats and handled the captaincy to Virat Kohli in 2017. With 10,733 runs, Dhoni is fifth in the list of India’s all-time run-scorers in ODI behind Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Sourav Ganguly, and Rahul Dravid.
