Former Indian captain MS Dhoni retired from international cricket in late August 15, 2020 and he announced the decision on the microblogging portal, Instagram.
Since then, he has been plying his trade for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. Under his tutelage, the yellow army won as many as four titles since the start of the competition.
Moreover, he has positively influenced the perception about Indian cricket during his heydays. MS Dhoni is the only captain in the history of cricket to have won three ICC trophies – T20 WC 2007, ODI WC 2011 and CT 2013.
Apart from being a terrific captain, he has helped the players transform the careers as well, which is a known thing. In fact, even the opposition players admire him.
UAE spinner Karthik Meiyappan recalls the advice given by MS Dhoni before the Ireland series in October 2021
Meanwhile, Karthik Meiyappan has recalled the advice given by MS Dhoni ahead of the Ireland series in October 2021, which helped him bring the best out of himself against Ireland.
For the unversed, Karthik Meiyappan is an Indian-born cricketer who represents United Arab Emirates national cricket team. He couldn’t come up with a better plan or strategy while playing against Ireland cricket team.
Since Ireland batters are well known to sweep the ball well, they had been easily taking on spinners. However, MS Dhoni’s advice helped Karthik Meiyappan to improve his bowling.
“MS Dhoni gave me advice before the Ireland series in October 2021 about how to handle them sweeping the ball because Ireland are more of sweepers,” said Karthik Meiyappan while speaking to ESPNCricinfo.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni will be back in action for the sixteenth edition of India’s premier T20 tournament. If reports doing the rounds are to be believed, then it will be his last season in IPL. Reports state that MS Dhoni would be a part of the coaching staff for T20I set-up which would help India lay a better roadmap for T20 World Cup 2024.
