Dhoni has a strong track record, says Shukla
Ranchi: Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni`s achievements reflect his strong track record, Union Minister and BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla said on Sunday.
"Dhoni`s track record has been strong. Under him Team India won the World Cup, T20-twenty World Cup and Team India was also listed at the top Test playing country," Shukla, who is the Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, told reporters when asked to comment over Dhoni`s captaincy following the debacle in the just concluded series down under.
Shukla, who was here in connection with a book release function, said one should not criticise anybody following a single setback.
On the alleged controversy that had surrounded between Dhoni and Virendra Sehwag, he said it was a media creation. He did not give a direct reply when asked whether the BCCI would ponder over rotation system for various versions of the game, saying it was the team management comprising captain, coach and others to decide upon the playing-XI out of the 15 available cricketers.
Shukla also expressed optimism that the ICC would soon approve Ranchi to host an international match at the newly constructed cricket stadium in the state capital this year.
