MS Dhoni has been at the centre of a lot of discussions lately with the Indian cricket team selections opting to rest the veteran wicket-keeper for the T20I series against West Indies and Australia. However, former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi believes that no one has the right to dictate when MS Dhoni will retire and the Indian cricket team will need the veteran wicket-keeper to succeed in the 2019 ICC World Cup.
“What Dhoni has done for team India nobody else can and nobody has the right to tell him when to retire. 2019 Dhoni needs to be there for India to have good chances” Afridi said. Afridi had earlier said that Virat Kohli is one of his favourite players but he believes Kohli needs to improve as a skipper.
“India-Australia series is going to be a very exciting contest and this Indian team has what it takes to beat Australia in Australia but the team needs to play together,” he added.
