New Delhi. If captaincy is an art, then MS Dhoni is the senior artist who has set really high standards in the white-ball format. The history of cricket is full of stories that explain the genius of the former India captain. Those who have seen him closely say that there is no better person than Dhoni in terms of leadership. India’s head coach Ravi Shastri is one of them. Shastri believes that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the greatest white-ball captain of all time.
Ravi Shastri said in a conversation with Fan Code that he has achieved almost everything that a captain can achieve in the limited overs format. He said that Dhoni’s captaincy records speak for themselves.
Shastri said, “Dhoni is the greatest white-ball captain of all time. Check out his record in ICC tournaments. What is it that he didn’t win? IPL, Champions League, all ICC tournaments, two World Cups. When it comes to white-ball cricket, no one is close to him here. He is the greatest. The King Kong, you can call him like this.”
Coach Ravi Shastri further said that Dhoni’s calm demeanor and control of the situation make him different from others. He said, “When you see Dhoni captaining a team and when you see Chennai Super Kings (CSK), there is assurance and peace that things are under control.
Let us tell you that after retiring from international cricket, Mahendra Singh Dhoni continued to captain Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. In this season of IPL, the team of CSK is on top of the points table. Under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Chennai Super Kings has become the first team, which has qualified for the playoffs this season.
