MS Dhoni is a very instinctive captain: Mitchell Santner
In an interview with TheIndianexpress, Kiwi player Mitchell Santner spoke about the two captains. The left nut said Dhoni and Williamson are two of the calmest guys on the field.
“Dhoni is a very instinctive captain. He was the captain in many games. He has been in difficult situations many times. He just has a knack for knowing what’s going to happen in the game. It will give you a pretty good view behind the tree stumps. It’s been great to have been with CSK for the past four years and to play under one of the greatest captains and players of our time. Kane, on the other hand, is someone who plans a lot in advance. He is very relaxed and calm. It helps you as a player when you’re under pressure, ”said Mitchell Santner.
Cricket is definitely growing in New Zealand: Mitchell Santner
The 29-year-old also spoke about how cricket culture is thriving in New Zealand due to the success of the national team in various major international tournaments. He said cricket is growing in his country and people are talking about it on the streets.
“We were close to winning a few more titles. Black Caps are now one of the best teams in the world and will drive the next generations to play cricket. In the past few years cricket in New Zealand has changed with the results the team has achieved. “
“A lot of people watch cricket and enjoy cricket; that goes hand in hand with the expectation of doing well. The fan culture in New Zealand is nowhere near that of India or Pakistan. But after the 2019 World Cup final, there is a lot of hype about cricket. People talk about cricket in the streets. Cricket is definitely growing in New Zealand, ”said Mitchell Santner.
