MS Dhoni will reunite with Ravi Shastri in the 2021 T20 World Cup in the UAE. The BCCI roped him in as the mentor of the side for the marquee tournament. Meanwhile, this news has got the Indian head coach Ravi Shastri smiling. Shastri and Dhoni go back a long way. The commentator-turned coach saw the emergence of the former Indian skipper and was a part of many memorable moments with him
Speaking to Fancode in an interview, Shastri said the legendary cricketer’s record 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” said Shastri.
Shastri further said that MS Dhoni’s control over things as the skipper of the side is what separates him from his counterparts.
“When you see Dhoni captaining a side, and you see Chennai Super Kings (CSK), there’s that assurance and calmness of things in control. The other side might me whacking sixes or fours but you still get the feeling there is this composure and control”.
