MS Dhoni is under the scanner for a long time now for his comparative par performances in the Indian team for a while.
Talking about Dhoni’s retirement, the former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly said that every player has to retire someday. Every big player has to hang up his shoes. That’s sport. Look at football, Maradona had to quit. There hasn’t been a bigger player than him. Tendulkar, Lara, Bradman.. everyone had to quit. This is the way the system has been and will be. So this scenario will come for MS as well,” he was quoted as saying by India Today.
“He is at that stage of his career where he has to evaluate where he stands. He has to decide if he can win matches for India. If he can continue to contribute like MS Dhoni, not someone else,” Ganguly said.
He further added: “Because with players like MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, until they play, there will be expectations that they will play like in this way and win matches in this fashion. I think Dhoni has to make this decision. Only a player knows how much fuel is left in the tank and how much of his match-winning ability is intact. Indian cricket will have to get used to the fact that MS Dhoni won’t be playing forever and he won’t be around for too long. But I believe this decision has to be taken by Dhoni himself,” he said.
Meanwhile, Dhoni has returned from his duty with the Army and is now busy with the commercial commitments.
