Ravi Shastri says “The King Kong” in the Indian Premier League. Shastri has entitled MS Dhoni the greatest white-ball captain ever. According to Shastri, Dhoni has achieved almost everything. He can achieve this in the limited-overs series. Dhoni and Shastri will work together. During India’s campaign at the upcoming T20 World Cup. While Dhoni has been named mentor of the team for the ICC event. Moreover, the T20 World Cup is likely to be Shastri’s final task as Team India coach for the game. Hailing Dhoni, Shastri said the legendary cricketer’s record. It is as a leader in white-ball cricket speaks for itself.
“Dhoni is the greatest white-ball captain ever. Just look at his record in ICC tournaments. What has he not won? IPL, Champions League, all ICC tournaments, two World Cups. There is no one close to him when it comes to white-ball cricket. He has to be the greatest. The King Kong, you can call him in that fashion,” Shastri said.
Also, according to Shastri, Dhoni’s calmness. As well his control as leader separates him from the rest.
“When you see Dhoni captaining aside, and you see Chennai Super Kings there’s that assurance and calmness of things in control. The other side might be whacking sixes or fours but you still get the feeling there is this composure and control,” Shastri said.
MS Dhoni announced his retirement. Also, from international cricket last year. He has continued to lead the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2021. Following their win over Hyderabad, Chennai became the first team to qualify for the Indian Premier League 2021 playoffs.
“The ball is in CSK’s court, how they want to play. They have qualified, they are going to finish 1 or 2, there is no question about that. It’s how Dhoni sees it. Does he want to rest players or does he want to try one or two players for the game? The endeavor would be to win. They would start as favorites, but no one likes to lose momentum,” Ravi Shastri said.
