MS Dhoni Should Be Playing Domestic Cricket: Sunil Gavaskar
Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar has recommended MS Dhoni to turn to domestic cricket to inspire young cricketers from Jharkhand.
Meanwhile, Dhoni hails from Jharkhand which did not boast of any big name before his arrival at the international stage. However, the scenario has changed for the better in recent years. The likes of Saurabh Tiwary, Shahbaz Nadeem, and Ishan Kishan are making it big from Jharkhand.
However, Sunil Gavaskar feels the return of MS Dhoni should inspire more cricketers in the coming days.
“Absolutely (when asked if Dhoni should feature in domestic cricket). Dhoni should be playing domestic cricket. And should be playing the four-day games as well because he will help so many of the emerging players from Jharkhand,” Gavaskar said to India Today.
“I know he travels with the team (Jharkhand). He acts as their mentor but to actually have him playing with them is a great inspiration. He will be a great inspiration to the younger players in the team,” Sunil Gavaskar adds.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni has struggled with the bat in the recent tour of England and subsequently in the Asia Cup. This year Dhoni has aggregated just 189 runs in 9 ODI innings at a paltry average of 27 with the highest score of only 42.
The talismanic cricketer attracted severe criticism for his poor batting since the tour of England. While the right-handed batsman managed to score handy runs, he copped criticism for his defensive approach.
However, the suggestions of Sunil Gavaskar can undoubtedly help MS Dhoni to gain some confidence ahead of the World Cup next year.
