Indian cricket’s most decorated captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has been playing the role of a mentor to skipper Virat Kohli since giving up the captaincy. But he is not at his best in batting, as some of them feels so.
His last 50 came almost a year ago against Sri Lanka and since then it has been a lull. With his consistent poor form, Dhoni’s role in the upcoming World Cup 2019 is a mystery. However, Dhonis close friend and manager, Arun Pandey revealed that the Captain Cool is no mood to give up on the World Cup series.But still there is no alternative for him.
Dhoni in no mood to give up on World Cup 2019 says his manager. Over the recent past, MS Dhoni’s role as a batsman has become immensely debatable. Dhoni could be seen struggling this year with the bat and his poor performance got him out of the T20I series against West Indies and Australia.
“It’s been a long cherished dream of Dhoni – since he gave up the captaincy in white ball cricket – to play in the World Cup next year where he would be more as a mentor to the team. His idea was to give Kohli time to develop in this role and there is still no change in his thinking,” Pandey reportedly told the Gulf News.
