Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the former Indian skipper is arguably one of the greatest cricketers to have played the game. He is the only skipper in the world to have won all the ICC trophies under his leadership. Because of his cool personality, sharp mind and of course his brilliance in the game, MS Dhoni is admired by several cricketing greats around the world.
But it has been around more than seven months since MS Dhoni was last seen in action during an international cricket match and not a single match of Team India goes where the fans don’t miss the presence of former Indian skipper on-field. From his lightning-fast wicket-keeping skills to his Dhoni-Review-System, the absence of MS Dhoni’s brilliance in the game is felt in every match.
However, he is now all set to return back to the ground as he will once again don the Captain’s armband for his team Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League. The fans are very excited about the return of MS Dhoni in the cricket field in the upcoming season of IPL and just can’t wait for the season to begin.
Well, not just fans but seems like Ian Smith, the former New Zealand player turned commentator is also missing the absence of MS Dhoni on-field.
Recently, Ian Smith heaped praises on the former Indian skipper, Dhoni. He said that no one can replace MS Dhoni in team India and it is not possible that players won’t miss his absence on the cricket field.
He also said how Dhoni almost won team India the semi-final of World Cup 2019. He also expressed how he admires him and loves talking about Dhoni. He said:
“How can you not miss MS Dhoni on a cricket field? He has been a great leader and a great finisher. He almost won you the World Cup  semi-final. I admire him and love talking about him, but time moves on and at some stage, you have to accept that new generation will get a chance,”
