Former India all-rounder Roger Beanie thinks Mahendra Singh Dhoni should give place to the younger generation now. He feels that the former India captain’s fitness has now declined. He is no longer the influential player that he used to be. Roger Binny was part of the 1983 World Cup winning Indian cricket team. Benny said he has seen Dhoni for a long time and there are no players like him now in the past.
In an interview with Sportskida, Roger Beanie said, “I’ve seen him a few times. Dhoni is different from the best cricketers of the past. He really gave his best. “

In the 2019 ODI World Cup, Mahendra Singh Dhoni played his last international match for India against New Zealand. India had to face defeat in this match. Since then, Dhoni has not played a match for India. He is expected to lead Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). The IPL was postponed on March 29 due to a corona virus epidemic, but now the tournament will be played in the United Arab Emirates from September 19 to November 7.
But Benny praised Dhoni for being a champion cricketer and for his great performance. Binny was made a member of the five-member selection panel in 2012. He said that Dhoni has always shown unprecedented respect to senior cricketers and players in charge.

“One of the things we admire Dhoni for is that he has a lot of respect for former cricketers,” he said. He is very down to earth people. He also gave respect and time to the cricketers. He would come to you and discuss. He would tell you what he wanted. ”
Benny continued, “He was a man of the field and we had to give him what we wanted but he didn’t want it. He talked to the chairman and the selectors. We never had any arguments or fights. It was great to work with him.”
