Who is the next Dhoni?

Suresh Raina, the IPL great of Chennai Super Kings has huge respect for Virat Kohli.

The veteran revealed how Rohit Sharma, the deputy of Virat Kohli could carry the Dhoni-like aura on the field. Suresh Raina who has played alongside Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the Indian cricket team and Chennai Super Kings for a long knows what makes Dhoni different and explained he finds Rohit Sharma’s captaincy similar to Dhoni.
During ‘The Super Over Podcast’ hosted by South African all-rounder J.P Duminy, India’s young woman cricketer Jemimar Rodrigues, Liam Flint Suresh Raina gave his insight into the same. “I would say that he (Rohit) is the next M.S. Dhoni for the Indian cricket team.”

What are the similarities between Dhoni and Sharma?

Suresh Raina highlighted how Rohit Sharma gives confidence to everyone. He was speaking from his experience, Raina insisted. “I have seen him, he is calm, he likes to listen, he likes to give confidence to the players and on top of that, he likes to lead from the front. When the captain leads from the front and at the same time gives respect to the dressing room atmosphere, you know you have it all.” He added, “He thinks everyone is a captain. I have seen him, I have played under him when we won the Asia Cup in Bangladesh. I have seen how he gives confidence to young players like Shardul (Thakur), Washington Sundar and (Yuzvendra) Chahal.”

Suresh Raina further highlighted Rohit Sharma’s IPL records as captain and opined, “Around him, players enjoy the intensity, they enjoy his aura. I think when you enjoy the aura of a player, you like to be positive and I think that is what he is good at. He is one of the top-most, after M.S. Dhoni, who was brilliant. He has won more (IPL) trophies than MS, but I would say they both are very similar. Both of them, as a captain, like to listen.”
