Former India pace bowler S Sreesanth referred former India captain, MS Dhoni, as the Don of Indian cricket and he also said that he believes his former captain would like to continue his play as long as he can. The former pacer also gave compliment to Dhoni's fitness despite him currently being 37 years old.
"See, I am not following this much, but as far as I know he (Dhoni) is very fit. For me he is Don - inkopakdnamushkil hi nahinamukinhai," S Sreesanth said on a live session on Helo. "He would love to play for the country, he's got that in his blood, he is only 37. Sachin and others have also played till 40."
MS Dhoni has been in the news ever since he has gone out of action after India’s loss to New Zealand in the ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final last year. Although he was supposed to return with this year’s Indian Premier League, the tournament has been postponed for the time being because of the global pandemic novel coronavirus.
Meanwhile, rumours of his impending retirement went on the floor when a Twitter user shared a link claiming that he would hang up his boots soon. The rumour took no time to be a trend on Twitter, which led to his wife Sakshi give a clarification in a now-deleted tweet.
“Its only rumours ! I understand Lockdown has made people mentally unstable ! #DhoniRetires ..Get a life !” her tweet read.
However, in the live session, Sreesanth spoke about his cricketing days, adding that he had no enmity towards Chennai Super Kings but always wanted any captain to be dismissed off my bowling. Even he also revealed about his pumped up celebrations after dismissing Matthew Hayden once. He said, "It is all the inspiration from WWE, nothing else. Even Shoaib Akhtar used to do that!"
