Rising Pune Supergiants recently replaced Dhoni with Steve Smith as their captain. People condemned the team’s decision as the owners of Rising Pune Supergiants said that the team needs a young captain.
While Team India suffered in the Test match against Australia, former captain, Dhoni, had a glorious day. He gave a bang on reply to the people who doubted his capabilities with his destructive performance in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Jharkhand’s team was struggling at 57/6 and Dhoni launched a fierce counterattack against the bowlers.
Dhoni played in his fearless style, finished off with 129 in 107 balls and made Jharkhand reach 243/9. History repeated itself, as it was the place where Dhoni first created an impression back in the early 2000s with his big hitting. His batting had the same ferocity as it was in the early days of his cricketing career. Dhoni proved everyone wrong who believed that his age will hamper his performance.
It was a historic moment for the spectators present at Eden Gardens. Dhoni might be 36 but his destructive hundred sent a clear message that he is the same ferocious MS Dhoni that he was 15 years ago. He is still the best finisher around.
