MS Dhoni is one of the most successful captain in cricket history. As a captain, MS Dhoni has achieved everything that was expected off him. From lifting the inaugural T20 World Cup 2007 trophy to taking India to glory in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, Dhoni is, statistically, India’s most successful captain.
Dhoni has a massive fan following across the world, but he has also received a lot of criticism off late. Although, Dhoni’s fan would easily outnumber his critics, there is a still a fair chunk of fans in India who don’t like MS Dhoni. The Cricket Lounge’s Manish Yadav lists 4 reasons why MS Dhoni is not liked by some fans in India.
1.Poor Overseas Test Records
MS Dhoni made his test captaincy debut in 2008. He started his captaincy career really well. He made India no.1 test team and became only Indian captain to win test mace. But at the end Dhoni fails to win in overseas matches. Indian team under MS Dhoni was struggled to win matches outside India and it made anger among Indians. MS Dhoni also don't have an overseas test century.
2.Dropping Senior Players from the team
After the memorable World Cup 2011, Indian team started dropping senior players one by one. Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and Zaheer Khan were dropped from the team and none of these were included in ICC World Cup 2015.
3.Biased Toward Chennai Super Kings players
Many Indian Cricket Team fans believe that MS Dhoni has given more chances to his CSK Teammates. Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohit Singh and Murali Vijay were got more chances even they are not in form.
