When asked about the criticism Dhoni has had to deal with, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, speaking at the post-match presentation ceremony, talked about the India wicketkeeper’s experience.
“He is not eligible to play for New Zealand,” Kane Williamson said.
“Is he looking to change nationalities? Because we will consider that selection if we have to!
“He’s a world-class player. Had I been the India captain? Yeah, his experience at his level and in these occasions is so important and his contribution today and yesterday, but throughout this campaign, it was extremely, extremely important. That partnership he was involved in with Jadeja who came in and hit the ball better than anybody in both teams was very, very valuable and he’s a world-class cricketer.”
Hence, this proves that Kane’s statement is manipulated and the above post is misleading.
