This IPL has been so great yet for MS Dhoni. He has hardly made any runs with bat so far in the four matches so far and there has been a certain degree of drop in one of the most deadly finishers of the game.
After his failure with the bat during his side’s heavy defeat to Gujarat Lions on Friday, #DhoniDropped was trending on Twitter. While the criticism has been strong, there has even been steady support for MSD from several quarters. RPS skipper Steve Smith and former Australian pacer Brett Lee were emphatic while backing the 35-year-old.
It was also Virender Sehwag who backed up a formless MS Dhoni saying that it is often difficult to score runs in the position that he bats, and said that there is absolutely no need to worry about his form.
“The position at which he’s coming in to bat is very difficult. He is still the best at No. 5 or No. 6,” said Viru. “There’s no doubt that he will be back in form sooner rather than later. There’s a lot of time left in the IPL. One should not judge a player of Dhoni’s stature just by the outcome of three-four games” Sehwag said.
“IPL should not be a platform to judge an experience player like Dhoni. It’s fine if you judge a youngster on the basis of IPL as it is difficult for a newcomer to showcase his talent in front of a huge crowd” added Sehwag that he recently scored an ODI hundred against England which still shows his worth in the team and also a worth of his form.
With this, Sehwag certainly rubbished any glitches that he had against Dhoni as per the fans.
