Former skipper MS Dhoni has been a great servant of Indian cricket over the past two decades as he led team India to new heights at the international level. However, the wicket-keeper batsman has been under the pump recently for his inconsistent batting performances.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli has also thrown his full support behind the veteran cricketer as he said that Dhoni deserves some space and time to figure things out since he has done so much for Indian cricket. He also pointed out the fact that the former captain stuck with him in his early days when he could have tried out new players, but he did not.
“It’s unfortunate to see so many people going after him. For me, loyalty matters the most. When I walked into the team he had the option of trying someone else after few games, although I grabbed my chances but for me to get that kind of backing, it was very crucial for me. Also, he gave me an opportunity to bat at No 3 because not many youngsters get to play at No 3,” he said.
