Kuldeep Yadav has quipped that MS Dhoni can falter with his suggestions, but that it’s difficult to point that out to him. Kuldeep Yadav also added that Dhoni generally doesn’t speak too much during matches, and only does so in between overs when he feels that it’s necessary to do so. MS Dhoni has captained the Indian cricket team during their successful campaigns in the 2007 T20 World Cup in South Africa, and 2011 World Cup in India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh.
At the CEAT Cricket Rating Awards, Kuldeep Yadav said, “There are a lot of times he (Dhoni) goes wrong but then you can’t say that to him.”
“He doesn’t speak much. He speaks only between overs if he thinks he needs to point out something.”
