Mahendra Singh Dhoni Hasn’t Treated Irfan Pathan Well in IPL: Sunil Gavaskar

Former Test opener Gavaskar, who has been commentating on IPL matches, feels Dhoni has not done justice to his bating skills and his handling of a “world-class bowler” like Irfan Pathan has been bewildering.

Writing in his column, Gavaskar analysed some of the reasons for Rising Pune Supergiants horror show in IPL 2016. RPS are last in the eight-team league and will play Delhi Daredevils on Wednesday night.

Gavaskar found RPS listless even before the team was rocked by a series of injuries to their key players – Kevin Pietersen, Steven Smith and Faf du Plessis.

“True, they had a major setback with injuries, but even before that, there didn’t seem to be the zing that one usually associates with a team led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni,” wrote Gavaskar on Wednesday.
