CRICKET- Indian skipper Virat Kohli will lead the 15 member squad at the upcoming World Cup and believes former captain and wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is indispensable for the team.
Speaking in defense of Dhoni, Kohli said, “What can I say about him. My career started under him and few have seen him from so close over the last few years as I have. There’s one thing about MS that’s far more important than anything else - and there’s a lot to him - for him, the team is always above everything else. It’s always about the team, no matter what. To top it, look at the experience he brings to the squad and we’re richer with it. Some of his dismissals behind the stumps, just recently too (in IPL), were match-changing.”
Dhoni has lead India to a T20 World Cup, Champions Trophy and a 50-over World Cup win.
He also asked cricket pundits and fans to be patient with Dhoni whenever he is unable to bat at his best.
