Scott Styris defends MS Dhoni’s position in the Indian team: Cricket commentator Scott Styris has defended MS Dhoni’s position in the Indian team.

Irrespective of the sport, irrespective of the status which any legendary player enjoys, with them not performing at the highest level can bring their position in their respective team in a spot of bother. Something similar has been happening with former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Dhoni might not be having a sword hanging over his head for his spot. But if he continues his indifferent run, it might well become the case. The selectors might still be in favor of persisting with him, but many cricket fans seem to have had enough of the 37-year old cricketer.

Most recently, former India captain Sourav Ganguly had also expressed his views regarding Dhoni’s current form, saying that he should keep performing to keep playing as past records won’t aid him for much longer.

In the ongoing Asia Cup, Dhoni was dismissed for a duck against Hong Kong and didn’t get to bat against Pakistan. Him dropping a catch against Pakistan didn’t help his case either.

Taking to social media platform Twitter, a couple of users were seen debating over Dhoni’s spot in India’s limited-overs team. Watch the tweets below:




Former New Zealand cricketer Scott Styris also joined this conversation. However, he was advocating for Dhoni, saying that he is the best wicket-keeper batsman in the world and that he should continue playing for India. Watch his tweet below:

What followed for an 8-year-old was an instant adulation for both Ganguly and the sport.
