Former BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry came in support of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and said that he still has a lot to offer Indian Cricket. She added that he is fit and best wicketkeeper of India with the finest mind in the game.
“During a match, you would see him asking a player to move to his right, and then to the left. The player would end up standing in the same place, but the idea is to make him alert. Before that his mind might have been wavering a bit,” Chaudhry said.
She also showed her concern for IPL matches that was to start from March 29 but has been postponed indefinitely due to Covid-19 pandemic and favoured for IPL start by giving the reason that it must start not only for revenue generation but also to improve the performance of domestic cricketers.
“It is the IPL GC’s decision, but my view is that effort has to be made to try and have that situation where the show must go on. It is important for domestic players also. The revenue is also important from it.” She said,
Besides IPL, T20 world cup which will commence in Australia in October and November is likely to postponed due to threat of coronavirus. However, BCCI is planning to start IPL at end-September to the early-November window if the situation improves.
