I am not a good fielder without gloves- MS Dhoni

Indian captain MS Dhoni is not having the best of form in the recent times and has been under immense pressure to deliver. The 35-year old however reduced a little weight off his shoulders at Mohali when he scored a crucial 80 which helped India clinch a 7 wicket victory.

But questions were once again raised when he got out cheaply at Ranchi as he struggled during his time on crease managing only 11 runs in 31 balls. However, there is one doubt that crept into the minds of Indian fans as they feel the over-reliance on Virat Kohli while batting which resembled the 90s team which was heavily dependent on the master Sachin Tendulkar.

After a poor performance in Ranchi, MS Dhoni was forced to answer some tough questions as series is now all squared at 2-2 with decider to be played in Visakhapatnam this Saturday.

“Stats don’t tell you the full story. We have not played too many ODIs in the last one and a half years and during that period there was one series against Zimbabwe. When we did play a lot of the times our top-order batted beautifully. So you can’t really say that. We do have other batsmen who can also do the job.”

The 35-year old has been asked another interesting question in which he was suggested to leave the wicket-keeping duties to concentrate more on his batting which has been poor in the recent years. However, Mahi has admitted that he is not a good fielder without the gloves and is likely to continue as a wicket-keeper.

“Who’ll field for me? I’m not a good enough fielder without the gloves,” he remarked.

Being one of the best wicket-keepers in cricket of all-time, Dhoni has been a remarkable gloves-man behind the stumps for India over the past decade as his keeping earned him a lot of plaudits over the course of his career.
