His task was difficult: Aakash Chopra replies to Gautam’s comment on Dhoni not giving India the enough potent players
“He is absolutely right that Sourav Ganguly gave a lot of match-winners to India. Dada even took over the captaincy when cricket was in difficulty due to the black clouds of match-fixing hovering over it and the public’s belief lost. From that situation to develop a team that went abroad and won, the eye for talent was absolutely fantastic,” Chopra was quoted as saying on his YouTube channel.
“In my opinion, Dhoni’s task was very difficult and a person like Dhoni was only required there, who could manage the team tactically with care and also manage the transition,” Chopra stated.
“According to me, it is a wrong comparison and it is a slightly incorrect outcome as well. I personally don’t agree with the opinion, I feel the team that Kohli got was assembled with great love by MS Dhoni,” Chopra added.
Recently, the retirement of Dhoni has bee the trending topic as people are forcing him to wear the boots of retirement whereas, the age just being a number, makes the decision to stay limited to his choice only.
