Indian wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik heaped massive praise on coach Chandrakant Pandit who led Madhya Pradesh to their first-ever Ranji Trophy title. The 37-year-old compared Pandit to legendary football manager Sir Alex Ferguson. Pandit was the captain of MP when they lost in the finals to Karnataka in 1998/99.
He was able to relive those memories by leading them to a 6-wicket victory over Mumbai at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Karthik was mighty pleased with Chandrakant Pandit’s coaching, who led the team to an emphatic title win in his first season. He has won two titles with Vidarbha and three with Mumbai.
Karthik said Chandrakant’s ability to understand personalities and create strategies around players makes his teams successful.
Under Pandit’s guidance, Rajat Patidar, Yash Dubey, and Shubham Sharma, Kumar Kartikeya and Gaurav Yadav were exception for Madhya Pradesh.
Karthik, who is currently with Team India in Ireland, finished the tweet by calling him the “Alex Ferguson of Ranji”. Ferguson won 13 English Premier League titles with Manchester United.
