Dhoni should play for another 1-2 years says Sri Lankan cricketer Lasith Malinga

Fans and several former cricketers including Tendulkar and Ganguly baffled with MS Dhoni's approach and criticized him for his lack of intent during his knock against England.

Sri Lankan legend and pace bowler Lasith Malinga feels that MS Dhoni should play for another one or two years as there lot of cricket left in him.

He also said that Dhoni’s experience in handling youngsters has a vital role to play in the future.

Fans and several former cricketers including Tendulkar and Ganguly baffled with MS Dhoni’s approach and criticized him for his lack of intent during his knock against England.

Talking to ANI, Malinga said, “I think MS (Dhoni) should play for another one or two years. He is the best finisher in the last ten years. I don’t think anyone can beat him in the future. He has to give his experience and situation handling to all the young players. They (India) have good experience in past captain, MS Dhoni. I think that’s why they are a successful team. I think they are good enough to beat any team in this competition.”

Maling also talked about the bowing yorkers with accuracy in a tense situation. Malinga is known for bowling yorkers in the death overs and has taken 3 ODI hat-tricks, including one in World Cup in which he took four wickets in four balls.

“The thing is anyone can bowl yorkers, slower ones, and good length balls. But the idea is to have accuracy. How many times can you hit the same spot? Then comes analyzing the game. The handling of the situation is what counts, and then comes the application,” Malinga explained.

Maling has high praise for Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who played a lot of cricket with him for Mumbai Indians.

“I saw him (Bumrah) in 2013 and spent time with him. He was hungry to learn, and he learned quickly. Hunger to learn is fundamental. Bumrah has shown the character in a short period,” he said.

Both India and Sri Lanka will play against each other on Saturday, in their last group game. India has qualified for the semis while Sri Lanka placed at number 6 in the points table.
