Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni is said to be one of the most calm-headed players the game of cricket has ever seen, and no one has more knowledge about the game in the Indian dressing room than the wicket-keeper batsman himself.
Everyone including Virat Kohli and other players trusts the decision making and judgement of Dhoni which proves to be right on most occasions. After winning the game against West Indies, Kohli revealed that Dhoni is the real person who goes out to examine the pitch and helps the management in deciding a winning total on such tracks.
“His experience, 8 out of 10 times, works for us. We have quite a few players who play instinctive cricket. He’s one guy who sends out a message of what the par score is on a pitch. If he says 265 is a good score on a pitch, we don’t aim for 300 and end up scoring 230. He’s a legend for us, and hopefully he’ll continue,” said Kohli.
