Former Indian opening batsman Virender Sehwag has come out in support of MS Dhoni who is not enjoying a good season with the bat in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).
“The position at which he’s coming in to bat is very difficult. He is still the best at No. 5 or No. 6. There’s no doubt that he will be back in form sooner rather than later. There’s a lot of time left in the IPL. One should not judge a player of Dhoni’s stature just by the outcome of three-four games,” Sehwag was quoted as saying by ABP News.
Sehwag emphasized that IPL should be the platform to judge the youngsters’ skills rather than focusing on experienced players.
“IPL should not be a platform to judge an experienced player like Dhoni. It’s fine if you judge a youngster on the basis of IPL as it is difficult for a newcomer to showcase his talent in front of a huge crowd,” Sehwag added to his words in the chat.
Dhoni has scored only 33 runs in the last 4 games he has played, but it is only a matter of time before he comes back to form. And now, the only question which remains is the time he would take to come back in form as he too would be desperate to knock the criticisms away.
