June 20, 2019
The experience of Mahendra Singh Dhoni is good for the Indian limited-overs side, says former Australia fast bowler Glenn McGrath. He said Dhoni should keep on playing as long as he enjoys the game.
McGrath is currently in Dhoni's hometown Ranchi to groom young fast bowlers from Jharkhand. He said Dhoni must keep playing even after the World Cup. Speaking to a newspaper he said,
There are talks of his retirement, but Dhoni should keep playing as long as he enjoys the game. - Glenn McGrath, Former Australian cricketer
Dhoni played his 341st ODI on Sunday against Pakistan, becoming the second-most capped Indian player in one day international matches overtaking Rahul Dravid. Dhoni, who is now 37, has constantly been under the spotlight since his strike rate came down in the last couple of years.
Dhoni has been scoring at a strike rate of 78 in the last two years compared to his career strike rate of 87. But he was shining at the recent IPL season for Chennai Super Kings.
McGrath, a former international cricketer, was at a workshop in Jharkhand.
