'Dhoni is the best captain ever in white-ball cricket'

Sports Desk
ODIs, T20 World Cups, Champions Trophy. Success in Indian domestic cricket IPL. There is nothing wrong with Mahendra Singh Dhoni as captain in limited edition cricket. But the names of other legends, including Clive Lloyd, Steve Waugh, Ricky Ponting, came up in the best judgment of all time. But India's head coach and former cricketer Ravi Shastri thinks no one else is close to Dhoni as captain.

Dhoni is the only captain to have won three titles organized by ICC. He won the first Twenty20 World Cup in 2006 and India won the ODI World Cup in 2011 after a long drought. In 2013, Dhoni was able to lift the ICC Champions Trophy title.

There were, of course, not so many global tournaments during the time of Clive Lloyd, Steve Waugh. Shastri doesn't think it is necessary to go into the issue of whether they would have won it if they had. In a video portal called, Shastri said without hesitation, "Dhoni is the best captain of all time in white-ball cricket. See his record at the global event. Didn't he win? Won all ICC tournaments, won two World Cups, IPL, Champions League. Nothing is left out. There is no one around him. Of course, he is the best of all time. You can call him "The King Kong".

Even in difficult situations, Dhoni is seen as impassive. He likes to work with the brain to control emotions. Because of this quality, Shastri has no hesitation in calling Dhoni the best. In any case, the opponent may hit four-six. But when you see Dhoni, it seems that he is stable, the whole situation is in his hands.

Shastri will be working with Dhoni in the next T20 World Cup. The Indian Cricket Board has appointed former captain Dhoni as their mentor for the World Cup. Dhoni is part of the team's decision and plan as well as head coach Shastri. Shastri has hinted at stepping down as India's coach soon after the World Cup.

Shastri's departure and Dhoni's mentor were making headlines in the Indian media. However, for the time being, Shastri hid all those things by praising captain Dhoni.
