"None has right to ask MS Dhoni to bid adieu from cricket," says Shahid Afridi

Dhoni has had a disastrous year with the bat part from IPL.

MS Dhoni is on the hit list of critics and everyone has already made a decision on his future. They want the former Indian cricketer to hang up his boots. The under-fire Dhoni has failed to deliver and his back-to-back failures have only made things worse.

After a poor show against West Indies in the 50-over format, he was removed from the Indian T20I side for series against the Caribbeans and Australia.

But the former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi has come out in support of Dhoni and said no one has the authority to right to call it a day for the Indian wicket-keeper batsman.

Afridi strongly believes India need their most experienced guy in the team for World Cup 2019. In an interview with Times Now, he said, “What Dhoni has done for team India nobody else can and nobody has the right to tell him when to retire. 2019 Dhoni needs to be there for India to have good chances."

Afridi had earlier said that Virat Kohli is one of his favorite players but he believes Kohli needs to improve as a skipper.

“Virat Kohli is one of my favorite players but he needs to improve as a captain. India-Australia series is going to be a very exciting contest and this Indian team has what it takes to beat Australia in Australia but the team needs to play together,” he added.
