Previous India captain Rahul Dravid as of late called India one of the top choices to win the 2019 World Cup and with the show-stopper occasion round the corner, two players who will by and by hold fortification as India hope to rest the confidence of the fans and intellectuals will be captain Virat Kohli and previous captain MS Dhoni. Addressing Cricbuzz, boss mentor Shastri has uncovered that while the group may hope to play Kohli at No.4 in English conditions, Dhoni is once in an age cricketer whose boots will be difficult to fill.
"He is as yet an incredible batsman, and is completing counterparts for us. You found in Adelaide, and he has been in breathtaking structure this year. He may not be Dhoni of 2008 or 2011. However, experience isn't purchased or sold in the market.
"What's more, why simply batting, you saw the come up short on James Neesham on Sunday. That was Dhoni getting it done, similar to a rascal. He was not by any means taking a gander at the ball, and the run-out was done instantly, and it changed the course of that diversion. He is heavenly with the gloves, and from behind the stumps he truly directs the wrist spinners since he sees all the handling edges from inside the circle much superior to the others," Shastri said.
Gotten some information about the ongoing analysis that Dhoni has gone under, Shastri clarified that no one is sufficient to scrutinize the previous India captain.
"No one is sufficient to scrutinize MS Dhoni. In the event that you talk about him, do you by any chance know anything about cricket? Dhoni resembles Sachin Tendulkar, Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar. These folks come once in 30-40 years. He is a trimming to the amusement. He has been the chief of a main Test group, and has two World Cups to his name.
"Indeed, reveal to me which trophy has he not won? Name it. There is no space in his trophy bureau. I figure individuals ought to become familiar with some things about cricket before they begin discussing Dhoni. You don't get a person (of his experience and capacity) medium-term," he illuminated.

While everybody however that India's main three was settled with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan at the best and Kohli coming in at No.3, Shastri chose to bowl a googly.
"The beneficial thing about this Indian best three is we can isolate them, if conditions and circumstances request. Somebody like Virat Kohli can go to number four, and we can put a decent number three to convey more parity to the batting line-up. That is adaptability for you, and for huge competitions like the World Cup, you must be adaptable to perceive what's the best equalization for the side. So we will choose that (appropriately in England)," he said.
Inquired as to whether that implies securing Kohli against the new ball in English conditions, Shastri stated: "Truly, perhaps Rayudu, or another person, could bat at number three, and Kohli comes in at number four. We wouldn't have any desire to exasperate the opening mix. Isolating the best three could make the batting more grounded.
"Be that as it may, we will evaluate that on observing conditions there in England. You would prefer not to be 18-3 or 16-4 out of a major competition. I couldn't care less about two-sided ODIs, however for what reason should I lose my best batsman right off the bat in a World Cup coordinate (if the conditions are bowler neighborly)?" he enquired.
