A former cricket player points out how Team India is missing the legendary captain

The Indian cricket team has been making some basic errors that have proved very costly to them. These errors have resulted in a continuing Trophy drought dating back to 2013, when they last won a global tournament.
With MS Dhoni stepping down and Virat Kohli taking his place as the captain across formats, India remained a dominant force in world cricket, especially in bilateral series, but the impact hasn’t been felt in multi-nation tournaments despite them making the finals on multiple occasions.
Former cricketer Mohammad Kaif believes that the team does miss Dhoni’s Midas touch, but they still have a quality captain in Rohit Sharma and a legend in Rahul Dravid as coach, which makes them capable of winning ICC titles.
Kaif said in a Virtual Encounter that "Dhoni has done well. I believe the likes of Rohit Sharma and all these guys are good captains. You have Rahul Dravid as a coach; what else do you want?"
He further said that, "You miss Dhoni because he has done so well in ICC events, but I think someone like Rohit Sharma can take the team forward. He has got the players and the team to win ICC events."
Kaif then talked about how India made an error by not picking Yuzvendra Chahal in the 2021 T20 World Cup squad and then pushing him down the pecking order when they did take him to Australia for the mega event in 2022.
