Former Indian cricketer added that the World Cup winner’s international retirement is “close of an era”. He is upset that he wouldn’t see Dhoni in Indian jersey but is glad that he would play for CSK in the upcoming IPL edition. 

“When Dhoni says he is retiring, it is more than close of an era. He has captained India to the 2007 T20 World Cup win, he has taken India to 2011 World Cup win, in between there was a Champions Trophy. He was an outstanding leader, a great wicketkeeper, an attacking batsman. A person who motivated the entire team,” Srinivasan told PTI.

“What more is there for him to achieve? Every sportsperson knows that at some point he will call it quits. I am sad that he will not wear the India colours again. But I am glad that he will continue to wear the CSK colours.

Srinivasan said that MS Dhoni’s fans would be happy to see his captaincy and brilliant wicketkeeping skills in the T20 league. He wishes that the CSK skipper forever plays for the franchise and lead them to win in the . 

He will continue to be seen on the cricket field. CSK is an universal brand now. People will be happy that his skills will be seen and exhibited on the cricket field going forward.”

“I have been a sportsman myself, I still play.. Whatever I do I do competitively. CSK has to go win the IPL now. I hope Dhoni plays forever.”

Srinivasan highly spoke about Dhoni’s leadership skills which played a major part in building the team. He said that Dhoni never took success seriously and was focussed on his game. 

“From the day he was appointed captain of India and even now, leadership and success sit very lightly on his shoulders.

“He is a very focussed person. Very committed to the team. And he has his own way of motivating every player in the team. Ultimately, as one legend told me, on the field nobody can touch him. That is his brilliance. That is not taught,” he added.

Further, The 75-year-old said Dhoni has an uncanny knack of spotting talent and credited him for building the CSK team. He said that Dhoni is credited to reframe the career of players who played under him during the CSK. 

“He is a person, you know, you give him any team he will lead it. He is good at spotting talent. There are some players in the CSK team suggested by Dhoni who were not as prominent as they are today.

“He has got an uncanny knack of spotting a person who is capable. A lot of them have grown. See the entire team has grown, I think that there is a special commitment that a player brings to the field when he is in CSK,” he said.

Currently, MS Dhoni is in Chennai preparing for the league, starting from 19th September.
