Indian team spinner Yuzvendra Chahal said that the news of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s retirement had surprised everyone. He said that the major reason for Dhoni’s retirement is the changed atmosphere due to Corona epidemic. Otherwise he wanted to play T20 World Cup.

I still want to see Dhoni playing: Chahal
“The news of Dhoni’s retirement was very shocking,” Chahal told a news channel. I believe that Corona also played a big role in his decision. Otherwise Dhoni wanted to play T20 World Cup. I still want to see him playing, because it is because of him that Kuldeep Yadav and I have been able to succeed. ”
Dhoni understands the mood of the pitch with the first ball
He said, “He helped us a lot from behind the wicket, which benefited us a lot.” If Dhoni is on the field, then 50% of our work is already done. Dhoni understands the mood of the pitch very well. For this reason, we get a lot of help from the first ball itself. Otherwise, in the absence of Dhoni, we have to bowl at least two overs to understand the pitch.
Dhoni was great captain, wicketkeeper and batsman: Srinivasan
At the same time, former president of BCCI N Srinivasan said, “An era has come to an end with Dhoni’s decision to retire. Under his captaincy, India won the T20 in 2007 and the ODI World Cup in 2011. Also, the Champions Trophy is also named after him. He was a great captain, wicketkeeper and aggressive batsman. They had nothing left to gain. The entire team was inspired by Dhoni.
