New Delhi: Team India’s former explosive opener Virender Sehwag has recalled India’s title win in the 2007 T20 World Cup. Virender Sehwag has also given a big statement regarding the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni). Virender Sehwag says that if he had been the captain of Team India in the 2007 T20 World Cup final instead of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India would not have become world champion.
What did Sehwag say about Dhoni?
Virender Sehwag said in a show of Cricbuzz, ‘A captain like Mahendra Singh Dhoni meets with great difficulty. If I were the captain of India in the 2007 T20 World Cup final, I would have given the last over to Harbhajan Singh, but Dhoni did not do it and luck also supported Dhoni.
Luck is always with dhoni
Virender Sehwag said, “Dhoni’s luck supports him, not because he is lucky, but because he takes decisions in which Luck supports him.” Sehwag admitted that India cannot get a captain like Dhoni again and neither can Chennai Super Kings get a leader like him in the IPL.

Dhoni is a boon for bowlers
Virender Sehwag has revealed another feature of Dhoni, saying that under his captaincy, bowlers do their best, because they keep advising their bowlers from the back of the wicket.

India also became number one in the Test for the first time in 2009 under Dhoni’s captaincy.
