IPL 2017: Virender Sehwag ‘happy’ about MS Dhoni not being RPS captain

Posted On

Former India opener and current Kings XI Punjab coach Virender Sehwag, recently said he is happy that MS Dhoni is no longer Rising Pune Supergiants’ captain and gave an interesting reason behind it.


“I am happy that he isn’t captain because maybe now my team, Kings XI Punjab, can beat this Pune team. On a serious note, I believe that this is an internal decision of the franchise but he is one of the best ever captains India has ever had,”  said Viru at the ‘SporTale’, sports-themed literary festival.


The new IPL team of the last season, Rising Pune Supergiants, narrowly avoided the wooden spoon to Kings XI Punjab in their last league match, thanks to Dhoni who smashed 23 runs off the final over .
