Suresh Raina refuses to comment on Virat-Dhoni captaincy conundrum
The most debatable topic in Indian Cricket over the past few days has been, “Who should be the captain of Team India?”
From every fan of India cricket to every media person to every official in BCCI, the question has become the most debatable as Indian captain is one of the most coveted jobs in the cricketing world.
The debate has reached a pinnacle stage recently with Virat Kohli impressing both with his bat and captaincy as he led RCB to IPL finals almost single-handedly. There have been various instances in the past when such debates have happened when Sourav Ganguly faced off with Greg Chappell back in 2005 and Yuvraj Singh not getting selected for 2015 world cup despite an extraordinary Ranji trophy. This is definitely going right up there with everyone from fans to officials are evenly split to have their support of one of them.
The debate has reached a new peak point when MS Dhoni said that it is up to the board to decide on the ongoing captaincy row. On one side is the most successful captain in Indian cricket who helped India to two world cups whereas on the other side is the best batsman in the world at the moment and an able leader who is making a huge mark with his captaincy as well of late.
Meanwhile, former team director, Ravi Shashtri has backed Virat Kohli as he feels it is the right time to make a change with next world cup being 3 years away. While Yuvraj Singh acted angrily when he was asked about this during a charity event.
When Suresh Raina was questioned about this on-going debate, he said: “How can I talk about MS? You should ask him about his future plans. He went to Pune and I went to Rajkot and there is no point judging him. I have respect for what he has done for India and his IPL franchise (suspended Chennai Super Kings).”
The southpaw has remained silent over the on-going row as he doesn’t want to take sides and is looking to make a comeback to Team India.
