Saqlain Mushtaq, the former Pakistani leg-spinner, believes that MS Dhoni was not treated well by the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), and a player like him deserves a farewell with dignity.
It is to be noted that his retirement’s topic was frenzied for the last few months and many forced him to retire giving a vacancy to the youngsters. However, the veteran has served his nation for long and achieved many selfless feats for India.
Saqlain Mushtaq believes BCCI did not treat MS Dhoni well
“I always say positive things and try not to spread negativity in any way but I think I should say this. This is kind of a defeat of BCCI. They did not treat a big player like him in the right way. The retirement shouldn’t have happened like this,” Mushtaq said.
“This is coming straight from my heart and I believe millions of his fans feel the same way. I’m really sorry to BCCI that I’m saying this but they didn’t treat Dhoni well, I’m hurt.”
“May God bless him in his future endeavors and whatever decisions he makes but there is one regret that I have. I think Dhoni’s every fan will have the same regret. It would’ve been great to see him retire after playing in the India kit for one last time,” he added.
The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) is to arrange a farewell match for MS Dhoni as he has bid a farewell to the international game without playing his last goodbye match.
He is undoubtedly known as one of the greatest leaders and the best among skippers either in India or in the globe. Dhoni is the only leader to win all ICC trophies and Asia Cup twice.
Dhoni has said goodbye to international cricket on 15th August along with his best buddy, Suresh Raina, as they pre-planned to retire together.
The greatest leader of all time played his last game back in 2019 in the semifinal of the World Cup. It was on his agenda to take a year gap and make a comeback in cricket featuring in the thirteenth season of the IPL first.
