Nobody in the cricketing world can even dare to doubt the fact, former Indian captain MS Dhoni has one of the finest and tactical brains in the modern day cricket. Under his leadership, India has successfully grabbed the 2007 World T20, 2011 World Cup and the 2013 Champions Trophy titles and is also the only skipper in the history of the game to win these three major ICC trophies. After retiring from Test cricket and stepping down as the limited-overs skipper, the veteran wicket-keeper batsman has been a great support to current captain Virat Kohli as well as for the rest of the players in the dressing room.
Recently former England cricketer Michael Vaughan was asked to pick the best international captain of his era and his answer was MS Dhoni. Vaughan also stated that the New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is outstanding as well as he handles the team sensibly.
“Kane Williamson is outstanding. has the gift to lead without having to say too much. He can maneuver his team in a sensible way and not a noisy way. Everyone realizes he is the leader, the power,” quoted Michael Vaughan.
Alongside Dhoni, the former England skipper also talked about England’s 2019 World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan. Vaughan stated that he likes Dhoni’s out of the box decision-making skills and the way he reads the game.
“Eoin Morgan was a revelation in 50-over cricket. MS Dhoni doesn’t do international captaincy anymore but in our era, Dhoni is the best white-ball captain I have seen…the way he maneuvers from behind the stump just reads the play, thinks out of the box, handles the pressure card and is also great with the bat,” Vaughan entailed.
“In Tests, Virat Kohli is busy, energetic, a brilliant batsman, full of life. I like the way he captains,” he concluded.
