The Pakistani legend sees Mahendra Singh Dhoni in Shikhar Dhawan


New Delhi. Pakistan wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal praised Shikhar Dhawan for leading the Indian team (IND vs SL) in the current tour of Sri Lanka. Akmal compared Dhawan’s calm behavior and leadership on the field to former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni). India recently defeated Sri Lanka 2-1 in the ODI series under the captaincy of Dhawan. Team India continued the same line of victory in the T20 series as well and defeated the hosts by 38 runs in the first match.

In his new YouTube video, Akmal praised Dhawan’s leadership style and his decisions on the field. The Pakistani cricketer said that he sees Dhoni’s face in Dhawan. Shikhar Dhawan’s captaincy in the first T20 against Sri Lanka was really good. He made good changes in the bowling and the field placement was also effective. Dhawan seems like a good captain. In fact, I can see Dhoni’s impression under Dhawan’s captaincy. Just as Dhoni used to be cool on the field, Dhawan is also seen in the same way.

Dhawan didn’t let the team disintegrate under pressure: Akmal
The Pakistani wicketkeeper further said that he (Dhawan) took excellent decisions under pressure and did not panic even after Sri Lanka’s fast start. Winning the match by 38 runs, that too when Sri Lanka scored 20 runs in two overs without losing a wicket, it is really special. Dhawan must get the credit for this. Of course the Indian bowlers were also superb. But Dhawan did not let Dhawan dominate the players. Which is the sign of a good captain.

‘Indian team bowled brilliantly’
Akmal praised India’s bowling attack for defending the score of 164 runs in the first T20. The hosts got off to a great start, but the batsmen did not play well in the middle order, which cost Sri Lanka in the form of defeat. Indian vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar made good use of his experience while bowling. He is a world class bowler. The target of 165 runs in T20 cricket can be achieved easily. But the level of Indian bowling remained very high in the match and the Sri Lankan batsmen could not overcome this challenge.
