The Worldcup winning captain Kapil Dev feels that it will be impossible for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to perform well if he decides on playing in the IPL without getting any match experience and practice, which was the case this year. Kapil said in a news channel, “If Dhoni is planning on playing only IPL every year, then it’s impossible for him to perform. It’s not a good thing to talk about age but at his age (39), the more he plays, the more his body will be tuned.”
As CSK didn’t perform well in this season of Indian Premier League, Dhoni’s performance was also not remarkable and expectable. Game proved that age and fitness plays important role and MS should think on that. MS has taken retirement from international cricket; he didn’t play a single match from June 2019 before IPL started. The thing mentioned by legendary Kapil Dev is notable seeing Dhoni’s and CSKs performance.
