Ravi Shastri feels MS Dhoni at 36 can beat players aged 26 !!!

Fitness is the most important aspect of any sport. In the case of cricket, it has become one of the major criteria for selection into the national squad. A player has to pass a certain number of tests to be eligible for selection. This makes it necessary for him to maintain high fitness levels even during off seasons. With the introduction of yo-yo tests, basic parameters have been set without which a player will not be eligible for selection in Team India. It is surprising to see that younger players are finding it difficult to clear the tests while stalwarts like MS Dhoni has aced it.

 

Ravi-Shastri-MS-Dhoni-in-Mumbai-Training

 

Ravi Shastri, head coach of the Indian team has backed Mahendra Singh Dhoni at all times. He believes that people have no right to question Dhoni’s ability to perform at the highest level. He brings calmness and tons of experience into the side and that has no parallels. Often, he is the lone warrior battling it out for his team in the middle. While Dhoni’s role has been questioned several times by the critics, he has silenced them with his performances against Sri Lanka in the ODI series.

 

Dhoni can beat 26-year olds

Speaking to IndiaToday, Shastri said: “We are not stupid. I have been watching this sport for the last 30-40 years. Virat has been a part of this team for a decade now. We know, at this age, he (Dhoni) can beat players aged 26. People who talk, forget that they played the game.”

 

“If they look at themselves in the mirror and ask the question, ‘what they were at the age of 36?’. Would they have run two runs faster? But the time they finish two, this guy will run three. Then he has won only two World Cups and averages only 51. Till today you don’t have a wicket-keeper to replace him in the one-day team.” Shastri added.

One of Ravi shastri's job requirements is to troll icf'ers on a regular basis...

His main job is to hold on to this job. Never sen a more non deserving person getting paid to coach. He is clueless what coaching is all about.

Dumbfu$&% cricket is a game of skills n reflex, yes speed ,stamina n endurance help in maximising those to an extent, but it's not major, with age ur eyesight, reflex n hand eye coordination slow down, so running, skipping don't matter lol, clearly Dhoni has lost his hand eye coridantion 4 to 5 years back n cannot connect or hit, even length balls, Selectors don't have balls or live in the real world, Shastri is just an asslicke#, Dhoni should have been pushed out 4 years back, we have enough talented keeper ,BATSMEN n by now they would've been better contributors then this useless plonker currently, Saha, Samson, Pant, K Rahul, even Jadhave for shorter formats.

Guys who side Dhoni aren't doing it because of logic or can observe n udertand the game or are clearly trolls, even Richards past his prime looked like a galli cricketer, same with Miandad, n Tendulkar also stepped down several notches, only Sanga n Hayden did well in their mid 30's.

Dhonis technique n unusual game n galli cricketer like game n strokes was based on quick reflex n hand eye more so n brute strength, but with time in his 30 the year he lost his reflex n hand eye coordination n stroke play he had lost quite early one he eschewed his stroke making to play safe after becoming captain it is disgusting and only in Asia more so u will see useless cricketers hanging on forever based on past glories n Dhoni for me has lost respect it's sad seeing him right now batting like a semi blind BATSMEN.

Fascinating how this pans out 

 

2018 3 tough away tour . I fully expect dhoni to suck more and more . Getting older and clearly body thickening . Poor technique as batsman but relies on hand / eye . This hamd eye is going and will go more . He will have bad 2018 . 

 

There was clear push by bcci to de throne him from t20 this decreased . But pressure willl be on soon . Prasad and shastri May look silly and axe may fall

Even if he sucks which he is likely to, he'd not be replaced as the WC is too close. Although I am hoping at least the likes of Rahane and Karthik are kicked out of the ODI squad by the England tour at least.

Not every 36 yr old is same

Murali n jayasuria was bloody fit till end of their career

Dhoni is another one who is more fitter then any youngster. Guys like raina, rohit has developed paunches who are 30 nd this guy is lean.................

 

Are u saying dhoni is not fit, watch him he is one of thee fittest . M sure his reflexes wudnt be same but every individual is diff .

Not at all. i am saying he is fit for his age but his reflexes are not that of a 26 year old. Its biology.

Yes.. :isalute: he beat pandya in running race. Can karthik beat tortoise in a running race ? I doubt that 

Can you give the details? Why does dhoni need stunts like this to show his value to team. No one was asking these questions 5 years back including me. He is done. Another wasted slot.

 

I want to see runs on theboard. Not cheap publicity stunts. Now this is called being insecure.

Why broadcast these results if you are not insecure? Can they tweet some stuff when he failed in CT.

It is a big deal. Why are they showing all these things now. How come they are making these statements now. How come Shastri and prasad are not making daily statement to support other 20 players except for this good for nothing grandfather? I want to know but I do have the answer.

All I know is someone is making a statement everyday how great dhoni is. If he is that good his actions will speak. I can see it for myself.

I just saw it. False news.

 

(1) It was not 100 meters

(2) Pandya gave him a head start.

(3) Dhoni did not beat him

 

You have no objectivity.

Pandya overtook him first and then Dhoni left him behind .. Pandya stopped cause he knew he couldn't win:hehe:

I checked it. Dhoni ran out of gas. After seeing that  100m race do you think dhoni could out run Pandya. You live in alternate universe.

 

can you do the math:

 

Start time 10/11 sec

Finish time : 18 sec

 

So they ran 100 m in less than 8 sec.

 

Now you do the math. Does India have two olympic medal winners.
