Team India's wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav has spoke about on how he misses MS Dhoni and how he would love to see him back again. Dhoni has been out of cricketing action from the last one year. He was last seen in India's 2019 World cup defeat against New Zealand in England and Wales.
The former Indian Captain was set to make a comeback to the field for the IPL 2020 as captain of Chennai Super Kings, however, Covid-19 played the spoilsport and all the fans were put on bay to cherish his comeback.
Though all the cricketing action around the world have been suspended amid the lockdown. MS Dhoni's return to International has always been the talk of the town mainly because of his sheer success as the Indian Captain. The fact that it has been more than a year the former captain represented the Men in Blue. This has been difficult for the Dhoni fans to digest.
With many views on this topic from various pundits and sources it still remains to been seen, if the 38 year old will be making a comeback.
Though Dhoni himself hasn't stated anything about his international future. Recently, his wife Sakshi had her first Instagram live session with Chennai Super Kings presenter Rupha Ramani where she addressed on the same and has stated, "He has had zero presence on social media during this lockdown, I don't know where and how these things come from. I just don't know."
Further, Team India wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav spoke about Dhoni's absence in an interaction with Times of India, "We all are missing Mahi bhai. I am a big fan of Mahi bhai personally. I really want him to come back into the team as soon as possible and play. Personally, I really feel he should play for Team India again.
Whenever we stepped onto the field, Mahi bhai would always come up with some instant advice. That advice has helped me a lot in my career. He is a great instant advisor,"
He further added, "He is someone who does not believe in giving advice ahead of and after the game. He will analyse the things and come up with instant advice on the field. That's what Virat bhai does as well." He added, "Mahi bhai is an instant advisor.Where as, Virat bhai is a great motivator.
Apart from these two, Rohit bhai has also guided me a lot on many occasions. I am really grateful that I am playing under seniors like Virat, Dhoni and Rohit bhai."
To back all these claims, The former Indian captain has been one of the best finishers of the game and undoubtedly the best Wicket-keeper of the era with 829 International dismissals and 136 dismissals in IPL.
He has been great force behind the stumps for years and has motivated many upcoming bowlers one being Kuldeep Yadav himself. His instincts and ability to judge the batsmen next move combined with pitch analysis has been the key to his success as the only captain to win all the three ICC trophies.
Will the India's most successful captain make a comeback to Indian team? Will IPL take place this year? Only time would answer these questions.
