Biggest challenge for Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Biggest challenge for Mahendra Singh Dhoni
                                 The biggest challenge for Mahendra Singh Dhoni

The cool leader Mahendra Singh Dhoni has won several name and fame in the World Cricket. He has given his entire energy for cricket and cricket has given him big things. As a captain, Dhoni has won 2007 T20I World Cup, 2011 World Cup, Champions Trophy etc but this time World Cup 2019 is one of the biggest challenges for him.

World Cup 2019

Dhoni has to focus on wicket-keeping, batting, planning, guiding the young team and so many other aspects. The whole world is a big fan of Dhoni. Unlike the 2011 World Cup, this time the crown of captaincy will not be on MSD but the responsibility of the whole team will be on his shoulders. He has given chance to many young players to show their hidden potential and in return, players have satisfied him with extraordinary performances. Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar etc are the live examples.

There were a lot of question marks on the playing of MSD for this world cup also but his recent performance in New Zealand have put full stops on many faces. Dhoni is the world’s best wicket-keeper, finisher and leader of cricket. May his experience and dedication turn out good for team India.

Virat Kohli has learnt a lot from Mahendra Singh Dhoni on and off the ground fora couple of time. He has won many series as a captain. Now Dhoni, Virat and Rohit Sharma have big respinsibilities to win World Cup title.

Dhoni Kohli Rohit

Big game, a big challenge but India can do it.!!!

Jasprit Bumrah Becomes Second Indian to Take 50 Wickets in T20Is

Jaspreet Bumrah, who took 50 T20 wickets after his three wickets against Australia in 1st T20 in Visakhapatnam, became the second Indian bowler after Ravichandran Ashwin on Sunday. India lost the first match by 3 wickets due to being the last-ball thriller, however, the Indian bowlers were terribly positive for the line-up because they compete for 126 runs against a robust Australian team.
Bumrah got 3 wickets with 16 runs in 4 overs because he gave the match to India on the brink of success when eliminating consecutive Peter Handscomb and Nathan Coulter-Nile in the nineteenth over.
Handscomb was not the only muster-out of Bumrah in the match. Right-handed bowler took 3 wickets, two of which came on consistent balls.
26-year-old bowler of India trapped Australian captain Aaron Finch on the first ball. After Handscomb was dismissed, Bumrah made Nathan Coulter-Nile clean-bowled with the threatening yorker. He finished the match with 3/16 of his four overs in the match.
Bumrah now gets second place with 51 wickets in T20I, while Ashwin has 52 wickets, and if Bumrah draws two more wickets in the second T20I, then he will overtake Ashwin to took the leading wicket-taker for India in T20I.
After the three-wicket defeat against Australia in the first T20I in Visakhapatnam, Indian captain Virat Kohli praised Bumrah’s superb effort and hailed for the half-century of KL Rahul, which he plays runs in the first innings.
Handscomb was not the only dismissal for Bumrah in the match. The right-armbowlerBumrahpicked up three wickets, two of which came in consecutive deliveries.
Bumrah is the world’s 26th bowler to cross the 50-wicket mark in the lowest format. Still, nobody has broken the 100-mark mark in the format. Shahid Afridi of Pakistan has currently made 98 wickets in his name.
