The World May Be Speculating About Dhoni’s Retirement But Opener K L Rahul Sees Him As An Inspiration

Published on 22 December, 2017 at 6:13 pm By

At the first T20 international against Sri Lanka on December 22, M S Dhoni appeared to be in a terrific form. First he scored unbeaten 39 off 22 balls and then affected four dismissals. These include two catches and two stumpings. It won’t be wrong to say that it was him who helped India register a significant 93-run victory over Sri Lanka.

There is no doubt that the end of M S Dhoni’s cricket appears to be quite close but for opener K L Rahul, the former captain is still a match-winner for India and a great motivator in the dressing room. The Deccan Chronicle quotes Rahul saying:

“I see him (Dhoni) as motivated in the dressing room as I always have. He’s somebody we look up to, he’s a match winner and he will always be one. He is in great shape, and he almost killed me as soon as he came into bat.”

He was clearly referring to the one highlight from the match that grabbed maximum attention was one “killer” shot from Dhoni. In the shot, Dhoni had given a stunning drive off Akila Dananjaya that had sufficient power to almost take out Rahul who could manage to avert the speeding ball before falling flat on the ground. The shot has been referred to as Dhoni’s bullet.

I don’t know what form you are talking about but every time I switch on the TV, or play with him in the dressing room, he always seems to get runs.
