Shane Warne—the Australian leg spinner—seems to be a big fan of Mahendra Singh Dhoni—the former Indian captain. This was seen from his latest tweet stating that MS Dhoni—a 35-year-old Indian player—does not need to prove to anything to anyone. He further states that he is also a motivating character one could have around. Warne—a 47-year-old Australian cricketer—tweeted on Tuesday backing and showing full support for Dhoni and posting his positive views for him. The tweet goes as below:
@msdhoni does not have to prove anything to anyone, he’s class & a wonderful player in all formats. MS is also a great captain & inspires!
Since the IPL 2017 has started, Dhoni is in talks for not having any big score yet. In the past 5 matches by Dhoni, he was successful in grabbing 61 runs in his account at an average of 15, along with a strike rate of 87. His best performance was seen in the latest game that was played against the Royal Challengers Bangalore; he grabbed 28 runs in his account batting at number 4. Though he gave an awesome six, Dhoni was not successful in helping RPS achieve required winning innings, since he lost his wicket to Shane Watson. However, we all expect an outstanding performance from Dhoni as he is having an opportunity to defeat the Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday and prove that Warne is supporting the right person.
Despite the fact that Dhoni has been taking efforts to grab runs in the IPL 2017 so far, there are few harsh criticisms regarding his low performance. According to these few disappointed fans, Dhoni is not the same cricketer he used to be few years back. MS Dhoni surely needs to show some serious gameplay in the coming match and win the trust of his fans. Since Dhoni has always been a legend in the game of cricket, crowd will obviously expect from him. Do you think the criticisms against Dhoni are right as far as his performance is considered till date?
