Former Indian captain, MS Dhoni’s childhood coach, Keshav Banerjee has said that the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy will be crucial in deciding the fate of the wicketkeeper-batsman.

 

Dhoni has stepped down from captaincy earlier this year to concentrate more on his batting. Keshav Banerjee has assured that if Dhoni comes out in flying colors, he will certainly be a part of the Indian team till the 2019 World Cup.

At the launch of an under-14 tournament, Banerjee said,



At the moment, his sole focus is on the Champions Trophy. If he’s successful there, I think he would go on till the World Cup 2019. It’s natural that with age, you would not hit the same strike rate. But his will power and game-analysing sense are the two qualities that make him special. He’s out there playing domestic one-dayers (Vijay Hazare Trophy) to keep himself in shape ahead of the Champions Trophy.

According to Dhoni’s childhood coach, Dhoni is still at the top of the game. Becoming a part of Jharkhand’s team was a smart move as it has reaped success for him after having a successful series as a batsman against the visiting English team in January.

Banerjee also said that Dhoni stepped down from the captaincy as he doesn’t like others pointing fingers at him. Talking about Dhoni’s decision of stepping down, Keshav Banerjee said,

He never liked to be pushed so he called it quits before anyone could point fingers at him in the Tests format. He never kept anyone in the loop, even his best friend or parents did not know when he quit Tests.

There is no doubt that Dhoni is one of the best cricketers in the Indian history of cricket. But do you think he deserves to be in the team of 2019 world cup? Do share your views in the comments section below!
