Indian head coach, Ravi Shastri has smashed all the Dhoni critics out of the park with his latest statement on him, where he has lavished high praise on India's 37 years old wicket-keeper batsman. Shastri put Dhoni in the rare category of people like Sachin Tendulkar, Kapil Dev, and Sunil Gavaskar. He also targeted his haters and advised them to learn about cricket before taking potshots at the veteran India batsman.
"Dhoni is like Sachin Tendulkar, Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar. These guys come once in 30-40 years. He is an ornament to the game. He has been the captain of a number one Test team and has two World Cups to his name. In fact, tell me which trophy has he not won? Name it. There is no space in his trophy cabinet. I think people should learn a thing or two about cricket before they start talking about Dhoni. You don't get a guy (of his experience and ability) overnight," he said.
Shastri also appreciated Dhoni's wicket-keeping skills and even likened him to a con artist. "That was Dhoni at his very best, like a con artist. He was not even looking at the ball, and the run-out was done in a flash, and it changed the course of that game," he said.
