He might have been out of the captaincy scenes but MS Dhoni is still the best leader for many cricketers. Recently, Dhoni played his first IPL game as a no-captain under Steve Smith but as usual contributed as much as he could have from behind the stumps.
“If you have seen, he was giving the inputs to Smith”, Rahane said. “Smith has done well for Australia but for me MS Dhoni is still the best leader. This is my first game under Smith but he is learning from Dhoni as well. I was actually watching them when he was taking advices from Dhoni and he would like to take more advices from him in coming games”, he added.
“It is very difficult as I have just played one game under Smith. I have played a lot more under Mahi Bhai’s captaincy and we all know he is a world-class leader. I think people should not compare Smith and Dhoni’s captaincy. He (Dhoni) is still a world-class player,Rahane said.
When asked about his views on the captaincy of Dhoni and Smith, Rahane said: “Smith was seen taking more tips from him. Dhoni was seen giving tips and inputs to Smith in the middle.”
