Dean Jones: MS Dhoni is among the Top 6 greatest cricketers of all time
He believes if Dhoni will go ahead with good IPL stats in the thirteenth season, he can also make his place in the World Cup.
“Look I am a huge MS Dhoni fan. I think he is among the top 6 greatest cricketers of all time for India. If he has a good IPL and the other boys don’t then come to the World Cup he might be looked at,” he said.
“So, it’s a big opportunity, and knowing MS he will prepare himself to absolute perfection to get himself ready for this, and I hope he does well,” Jones said.
“What he does is he makes past players like myself and people to just move forward in their seats and watch how he goes about his cricket. There aren’t too many players who could do that. If you have gone to watch a match and MS is playing, people are always on the edge of their seats because they don’t know what he is going to do next,” he said.
“He is a great entertainer and I hope he will have a great IPL because I am looking forward to how he plays,” he said.
Jones also discussed the ex-president of Pakistan and said that he is graceful and everyone talks of him in politics whereas, Dhoni is discussed in the world of cricket by prime ministers and presidents as well.
“Probably the hair cut in Pakistan. I was commentating and President Musharraf told him to keep the hair cut and said he looked good in it. He is that style of player that even presidents and prime ministers talk about him because he captivates everyone,” he said.
