VVS Laxman’s big statement on MS Dhoni’s retirement: Here’s what he said

Former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman who is the part of commentary team of broadcasters Star Sports advised MS Dhoni to let youngsters make their way.

In fact, Virat Kohli has not hurt his reputation of being the best batsman in spite of losing the second T20 against New Zealand.

However, MS Dhoni is facing all these things to step out of T20 series and to offer a chance to newcomers in spite of his 49 runs knock off 37 balls.

MS Dhoni has been gradually more under pressure to take a retirement from T20 International cricket matches following the slow performance in second T20 International held in Rajkot against New Zealand.

He was continuously fighting in the start. The time MS Dhoni came, Team India required 10 to 12 runs per over. However, he was not able to perform his shots owing to which it had increased it to 17 runs per over.

Because of MS Dhoni slow bating captain, Virat Kohli was also affected who after grasping 49 runs in up to 37 balls gifted the wickets to New Zealand bowler.

Ultimately the outcome was that India faced a defeat of 40 runs and the three-match series finished at 1-1. The final result of this series will reveal on 7th November when both the teams will come to blows in Thiruvananthapuram.

VVS Laxman supposed throughout the post-match show that ‘in T20 MS Dhoni turn was at number 4 and he has much time to consider and then perform. As today was the typical example as Kohli was batting and Dhoni should offer strike to him, and Kohli’s strike rate is 160 and Dhoni’s is just 80 which is much low’.

Former seamer Agarkar throughout an interview with ESPNcricinfo said that ‘ I consider that Indian should look for better opportunities, especially for T20s. for one day cricket, his role is perfect, but for T20 I don’t think India will miss MS Dhoni.

Agarkar added that ‘I even heard that MS Dhoni must bat at in different numbers; however, he came at 10th over in the game. How many times you will get a chance to bat at 10th over in T20 cricket and according to my views there was sufficient time’.
