“Virat Kohli wants a player like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he is lacking,” said the West Indies player.
Former West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding has said that Virat Kohli needs a player like Mahendra Singh Dhoni in his squad. Holding, one of the deadliest bowlers in the world in the 70s and 80s, believes that if Kohli’s team has to chase big bells in white-ball cricket, they need to find a player like Dhoni. His statement came at a time when the Indian team had failed to reach the target of 375 in the first ODI against Australia.
Australia scored 4374 for the loss of wickets in 500 overs in the first ODI against India at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney. In reply, Virat Kohli’s side could only manage 3088 for the wicket in overs0 overs. The Kangaroos took a 1-0 lead and won the series. “India has a lot of good players, but I think one thing is that Virat Kohli’s team is struggling after the death of Mahendra Singh Dhoni,” Michael Holding said on his YouTube channel. We know that Dhoni used to be in the middle order. They wanted to control the run chase.
Holding said, “When Dhoni was in the team, India did better in the chase and never thought of winning the toss because they knew what Dhoni could do.” This batting order is also excellent. We have seen a lot of talented players and great shots, but we have still picked a player like Dhoni. Not only because of his ability to be Dhoni, but also because of his determination.
The veteran West Indies bowler said, “We have never seen Dhoni scared on such an occasion.” He ran the innings well while chasing runs. They could do this because they knew their abilities. He knew how to chase runs. Anyone who bats with them is always talking to them. India have good batting, but MS Dhoni was a special man in the chase.
