Mohammad Shahzad pays tribute to MS Dhoni as latter draws curtains to his international career

Former Indian cricketer, MS Dhoni, has inspired a generation of cricketers, in both his native country as well as all prominent cricketing nations.

During the promotional video shoot of the 2019 ICC ODI World Cup, the likes of Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Virat Kohli heaped praises on Dhoni. The video encapsulated the amount of respect garnered by Dhoni globally during his illustrious 15-year-long career.

Over the years, Dhoni donned the role of a wizardly wicket-keeper, feared finisher, and a calm and composed captain. The Jharkhand stalwart helped India win the 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 ODI World, 2013 Champions Trophy, and the ICC Test Maze in 2008.

Dhoni is the only captain to clinch all prominent ICC titles. As a result, he finished as the most decorated captain in the history of the sport. Even after stepping down from captaincy, Dhoni marshalled the Indian troops from behind the stumps, grooming the youngsters in the squad.

The greatest legacy left behind by MSD is a world-class unit, which he handed over to young Virat in 2017. Mahi came into the team in the presence of a star-studded Indian lineup in 2004.

During his tenure as captain, Dhoni was responsible for a smooth transition in the Indian team, with the retirement of Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble and VVS Laxman.

Watching Dhoni in action on the field inspired many cricketers, including Afghanistan’s wicket-keeper batsman, Mohammad Shahzad. As the Ranchi-born cricketer announced his retirement from international cricket on Saturday,

Shahzad also took to Twitter to pay his tribute for the former Indian captain. “It’s really sad to hear that my favourite and role model MS DOHNI is retiring from cricket. His services to Indian cricket is unforgettable, I will definitely miss you in the field of cricket and your kind advises for my improvement @msdhoni. miss you Mahi,” Shahzad tweeted.

IPL 2020: Ravindra Jadeja among the three Indian players to miss CSK’s preparatory camp

Former India captain and some of his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) teammates arrived in Chennai on Friday (August 14) for a training camp ahead of the commencement of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Apart from the Ranchi superstar, others who have reached ‘The Detroit of India’ for the training camp which kicked off on Saturday (August 15) at the MA Chidambaram stadium were CSK’s backbone , aspiring talent Deepak Chahar, new member Piyush Chawla and Kedar Jadhav.

“Thirteen or 14 of the 16 Indian players will be part of the camp, including MS. Since they came after undergoing COVID-19 tests, their next test will be 72 hours before leaving for the UAE on August 21. They will start training from tomorrow,” a CSK official had said.

CSK who have won the IPL title for three times posted pictures of Dhoni and other players arriving in Chennai on their official Twitter handle.

However, IPL’s most talked about franchise will not have some of its star Indian players joining the preparatory camp. These players are all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and medium-pacer Shardul Thakur.

As per the sources, the trio has decided to skip the camp for personal reasons, but they will join the team on the flight to Dubai on August 21.

“Harbhajan and Thakur had a few personal commitments, and we understand that. However, they have already started training on their own. So we aren’t worried about them missing our camp. They are expected to join the squad by August 19,” the source informed.

As per the SOPs issued by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), all the players would be subjected to two COVID-19 tests, and if they return negative, only then they would be allowed to fly to Dubai.

Earlier, the Dhoni-led CSK had organised a camp in the first month of March ahead of the initial date of IPL (March 29).

The 13th edition of the lucrative league will be played for 53 days, from September 19 to November 10. All the matches will take place across three venues — Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Dubai.
