On Thursday, India’s World Cup-winning coach Gary Kirsten spoke on the retirement of Former India captain MS Dhoni. Gary mentioned that MS Dhoni is amongst the greatest sportsmen in the modern era and he should be allowed to take a call on his retirement on his own terms.
#DhoniRetires was one of the top trends on Twitter on Wednesday. It wasn’t long after MS Dhoni’s wife Sakshi to put an end to those rubbish reports with a single tweet.
Dhoni has been very unpredictable and kept all his cards close to his chest. The 2011 WOlrd Cu winning captain hasn’t spoken anything about his international future. Dhoni’s future has often been one of the most talked-about discussions amid the lockdown in social media.
Earlier, During a promotional event, MS Dhoni had commented “January tak mat poocho,” when he was asked about his much-discussed future.
Speaking about the same, Gary Kristen said, “MS (Dhoni) is an incredible cricketer. Intelligence, calmness, power, athleticism, speed, and a match-winner separate him from others and puts him amongst the greatest sportsmen in the modern era. He (Dhoni) has earned the right to leave the game on his own terms and no one should dictate to him when that time is,” Gary said.
“Playing was more challenging. I loved coaching the Indian team. It was one of the great privileges of my life,” Kirsten added.
