‘It’s not going to be easy’: Anil Kumble
Kumble cited the previous season as a notable example, acknowledging that despite not being 100 percent fit, Dhoni showcased exceptional performance both behind and in front of the stumps.
“I think last year was a classic example, we all know he was not 100 percent fit, but yet he managed to be at his best behind the stumps, in front of the stumps. You have time, but he has hardly played any cricket. It’s not going to be easy,” the 53-year-old added.
