Michael Vaughan says “Best decision to put ‘master’ Dhoni in a mentoring role for T20 World Cup.” Michael Vaughan includes the move to appoint MS Dhoni as a mentor. Also, the T20 World Cup is among the greatest decisions. It is made in Indian cricket. Dhoni was in his element as captain. Chennai defeated Bangalore by six wickets in Match 35 of the IPL 2021 in Sharjah on Friday. Vaughan hailed Dhoni’s authority moves. Amid CSK’s triumph over Bangalore. He was especially inspired by the way Dhoni used Ambati Rayudu. Moreover, to handle the Glenn Maxwell threat.
“You look at Rayudu, why did they put him in the position that he got put in? Because the off-spinner was on. And what did he do the first ball to the off-spinner? He danced down the track and whacked him for four. It was smart cricket. You have got combinations in the Chennai Super Kings’ batting line-up that can change depending on the pitch, depending on who is bowling,” Vaughan said.
In other words, in accordance with Dhoni is always trying to one-up the opposition.
“MS Dhoni and his team would have realized that if Maxwell got a wicket, he would probably bowl again and more than the two overs that he eventually did. That’s why they sent in a right-hander to make sure that it doesn’t get to that stage. That’s being flexible and not having an ego about where you bat. CSK are always thinking about what the opposition are going to do,” Michael Vaughan said.
Lastly, Dhoni, Vaughan backed the BCCI’s decision. Also, to appoint Dhoni as the mentor of India’s T20 World Cup squad.
“I know there was a bit of commotion when Dhoni was put in the mentoring role for the T20 World Cup. It is the greatest decision the Indian T20 team has made. Moreover, you need that kind of brain in and around that dugout and training zones, getting into these players’ minds over how to play T20 cricket. He just does it without thinking. Also, he is such a natural at what he delivers and he seems to get it right 90-95 percent of the time. He is a master,” the 46-year-old opined.
