Former Indian team batsman Sanjay Bangar has expressed confidence in Mahendra Singh Dhoni, captain of the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings, that he is very experienced and will handle the team better.
In Star Sports’ Cricket Connected, Bangar said, “Dhoni is very experienced as a captain. He has a lot of experienced players, but how he handles these experienced players on the field will be a matter to be seen. I don’t think they will have to face challenges in dealing with these players during batting and bowling. “
