Dhoni’s skipper looks like Irfan – NEWS 360 – SPORTS

first_imgNEW DELHI: Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is best known for his captaincy role, has been terrific at the time of captaincy, said former Irfan Pathan. Irfan, who captained the team in 2007, said Dhoni had gained the confidence and confidence he had gained in subsequent years. Speaking on Star Sports’ cricket-connected program, Pathan described Dhoni’s trip to Captain Cool.Dhoni made his debut as a hero in 2007. He controlled the bowlers at that time. During the wicket-keeping, bowlers come to the bowlers and give instructions. It was in 2007 that I realized we would be so excited when we got the responsibility to lead the team.But by 2013, Dhoni had gradually shifted from that style. He got the bowlers confidence. With this, Dhoni has grown into a calm captain. Between 2007 and 2013, Dhoni gained the experience of relying on slow bowlers and spinners. By the time the 2013 Champions Trophy arrived, Dhoni was aware of the need to bring down the spinners in order to win the game in a timely manner.Irfan Pathan played under Dhoni when India won the Twenty20 World Cup in 2007, the Commonwealth Bank Series in Australia in 2008 and the Champions Trophy in 2013.last_img read more

O’Sullivan warns of ‘risk’ of allowing fans at World Snooker Championship

first_imgSnooker’s top tournament is one of a number of sporting events chosen to test the safe return of spectators as part of the easing of coronavirus lockdown rules in England.The World Championship starts on July 31 and five-time winner O’Sullivan has left open the possibility of withdrawing despite saying he was prepared to take the risk of playing.With a limited number of fans set to be given access to Sheffield’s Crucible arena, O’Sullivan told the BBC: “I just think it’s an unnecessary risk. I just don’t think you want to be putting people’s lives at risk.“You look at the NHS (National Health Service) and you think this is like a war at the moment and it’s those people who have been flat out, and you watch what they go through, and anything to take the stress off them is paramount.”O’Sullivan, who had previously hinted he could pull out if crowds were allowed back into the venue, fired a warning to organisers that he was not certain to keep playing even if he enters the tournament.“If I get to that point (of feeling uncomfortable), then obviously there is no point in playing. And hopefully I don’t, hopefully I feel like I’m there and I’m enjoying it,” he said.O’Sullivan is due to start his first round match on August 2 against a qualifier, as he bids to rebound from last year’s stunning opening-round loss to amateur James Cahill.last_img read more
