The legendary Indian captain MS Dhoni told former national selector Sanjay Jagdale after he was appointed as the captain of the first T20 World Cup (2007) that he would take home the T20 World Cup trophy.
MS Dhoni is considered one of the most successful cricket players in the international cricket world. His game analysis ability is absolutely top-notch, and he is always ahead of the game. Mahi immediately became his favorite when he first appeared in an international cricket game. Some people like his style of play, some like his hairstyle.
After he won all the major ICC trophies in his time, his name went down in history in golden letters. It is worth noting that Duny led India to win the 2007 T20 World Cup, the 2011 Top 50 World Cup and the 2013 championship trophy.
“He was appointed captain for the first time, he said: sir, hum World Cup Jet Ke Ayang”: Sanjay Jagdell
At the same time, former national selector Sanjay Jagdale is a member of the selection committee, which includes Dilip Vengsarkar, Venkatapathy Raju, Ranjib Biswal and Bhupinder Singh, who appointed MS Dhoni as the captain of the first 20 World Cup in September 2007.
Sanjay Jagdale thinks that the former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a very cool person and his understanding of the game is very good. He said:
“He is cool and can read games, situations, opponents and conditions very well. Especially at Twenty20. I will never forget the 2007 World Cup in South Africa. I was in London as a selector for the series against England. We chose one. A new team headed by Dhoni.“
At the same time, Jagdell recalled a brief conversation with Duny after he was appointed as the captain of India. Jagdell said:
“He was appointed captain for the first time, he said: sir, hum World Cup Jetke Ayang (we will come back with the World Cup). I will never forget what he said. He is not casual at all, he said to himself Looks very confident. India won the World Cup.”
Sanjay also talked about the events that occurred during the 2007 ODI World Cup match between India and Sri Lanka in Port of Spain. He said:
“I’m the selector and manager. And, I’m watching the game with coach Greg Chappell. Donnie got up and sat on the stairs. When Muttiah Muralitharan started bowling around the wicket. I just mentioned him to Greg. Will his “doosra” be effective in bowling around the ticket gate? Dhoni told me in Hindi; “Sir, mai aapko yahan se bata doonga, about his doosra (I will tell you from here). Duny explained. “
Meanwhile, shortly after MSD hit the ball, Greg Chappell asked Jagdale Dhoni what he said in Hindi. Sanjay Jagdell asserted:
“I told him about the conversation between me and Duny, and Greg told me immediately: “Sanjay, he (Dony) is your future captain. With Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly withdrawing from the 2020 World Cup, he has indeed become the captain of India. I will never forget this,”
“I know that Dhoni has a good relationship with Virat (Kohli)”: Sanjay Jagdale
It is worth noting that MS Dhoni has been appointed as the mentor of the Indian National Cricket Team for the upcoming 2021 T20 World Cup. Speaking of Dhoni’s participation in the World Cup, Jagdale said:
“But one thing I know is that Dhoni has a very good relationship with Virat (Kohli). Indeed. He will use his experience and knowledge to add something to the team.”
At the same time, the last thing that Jagdell talked about happened in the match against Australia in Nagpur in March 2019, which shows that Villat Koli and Ms. Donny Share mutual respect.
“This was before the World Cup in England. I watched the game from far behind and from the side of my sight. We are ten people from Indore in the gallery. That was my first international game in three or four years. “
“Marcus Stoinis hit the ball very well, while Virat shot from a long distance, right in front of us. I can hear Dhoni yelling Chiku (Virat’s nickname), And asked him to move 15 to 20 feet for extra cover. Dhoni asked the Indian captain (Virat) to move. This is an amazing event. Virat has no problem with this. He just moved. This is the respect they have. And harmony. Even before Dhoni became the captain, all the players had a good balance with Dhoni. I even explained to my friends what happened on the court and the players’ respect for Dhoni.”
