Dhoni may even end his career: Sreesanth reacts to Stokes’ allegation
India pacer S Sreesanth has warned England all-rounder Ben Stokes after Stokes made ontroversial comment over former India captain MS Dhoni. Stokes has raised allegation recently in his book ‘On Fire’ that India lost the match against England during World Cup 2019 willingly and Dhoni led from the front in this lose.
England put a score of 337 runs in 50 overs against India in last year’s World Cup group stage match. But team India hardly managed to score only 306/5 in 50 overs. Stokes mentioned in his book that the Indian batsmen weren’t keen on winning the match.
“I hope Ben Stokes wishes he never plays against Dhoni, because he (Dhoni) doesn’t forget anything,” Sreesanth said during an Instagram Live.
“I wish Stokes all the best because if during the IPL or an India-England match, him and Dhoni cross paths again, whatever the one or two million Stokes has been getting, it’ll all go away. Dhoni may even end his career.”
Sreesanth, who received ban of 7 years because of 2013 IPL spot fixing scandal, also challenged Stokes to get the wicket of Dhoni. He said he’s looking forward to bowl against Stokes. His ban will end on September this year.
“I openly challenge Stokes to dismiss Dhoni, irrespective of whether he’s the No. 1 allrounder in the world. Ben Stokes, you’ve been playing for the last four to five years and since I wasn’t playing, I am really looking forward to bowl to you brother. Just to give an answer to what you said about Dhoni.”
