Former Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar praised MS Dhoni for his tenure as captain of the Indian cricket team after the BCCI announced the Dhoni’s resignation.
Tendulkar was part of the team that Dhoni led to victory in the 2011 ICC World Cup.
Sachin Tendulkar was quoted saying:
“Congratulations to MSD on a wonderful career as a captain leading India to success in both T20 and ODI World Cups,” he said, “Have seen him emerge from an aggressive player to a steady and decisive captain. It’s a day to celebrate his successful captaincy and respect his decision. Wish MSD the very best as he continues entertaining us on the field with his exploits.”
Sachin Tendulkar had shared some of the greatest moments of his career in the Indian team under MS Dhoni. Apart from winning the World Cup in 2011, which he characterised as the biggest moment of his career, Dhoni was the man on the non-striker’s end when Tendulkar became the first player to score a double hundred in ODI cricket.
News of Dhoni’s resignation comes days before the announcement of India’s ODI and T20 series against England. His decision was announced by the BCCI. It was also stated that he is available to be selected for India ODI series against England.
