Here is the reason behind MS Dhoni’s demotion in WC Semis
After a hear breaking semifinal experience for the Indian fans in the ongoing world cup, there is one question that has been haunting them. Why Dhoni was sent at No 7 though India lost three early wickets. After the departure of Rohit, Kohli, and Rahul for just 5 runs on the board, everyone expected that MSD would be sent ahead of Pant and Pandya. But the contrary has happened.
India head coach Ravi Shastri has revealed sending MS Dhoni to bat at number seven against New Zealand in 2019 World Cup semi-final was a team decision and everyone was in with it. He added sending Dhoni out to bat early would've killed the chase. "It would've been criminal to not make use of Dhoni as a finisher," he further said.
But, all the former players and cricket analysts opined that an experienced customer like Dhoni would have sent at that lethal phase. Even former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly, who was on air was telling the same when every batsman came out ahead of Dhoni. Even the result is inevitable, the debates will continue for a very long time.
