That’s according to former India batsman Aakash Chopra, who says Dhoni will never work on his glovework.
Dhoni has taken more than 600 catches for his country and relies on natural talent rather than hours of graft.
While commentating on the third T20, Chopra said: “We’ve spoken about the number of innings he’s had as a keeper, but you will never see him keep. It’s only in the matches he will don the gloves.
“In the practice sessions before the game, the warm-up sessions the day before or on the eve of the game, you will never see him don the gloves at all.
“He’s bowling in the nets, batting, bowling spin, bowling fast – he doesn’t keep. And still, he’s that good.”
While Kiwi commentator Ian Smith paid tribute to Dhoni for another side of his game – his leadership.
Dhoni relinquished the captaincy to be replaced by Virat Kohli – though he was rested for the New Zealand T20s.
Instead, Rohit Sharma has led the India side but Dhoni has been a useful companion to ensure all remains on track behind the stumps.
“The other thing we are seeing now, even though he’s not the designated captain, is leadership. That’s been a massive part of his career,” Smith added.
