Indian tennis star Sania Mirza said in an interview that Indian cricketer M.S Dhoni and Shoaib Malik have many similarities.
During the interview Sania said,
“I think that if he (Dhoni) wanted to make a celebration out of it (retirement), he would. I think we should give him that. I think he is a big enough star or has achieved enough, be secured enough to say, ‘I am going to walk out a bit quietly and respectfully.’ I think that is what makes him the Captain Cool, that’s what makes him MS Dhoni because he is someone who has achieved so much not only for himself but for the country.”
Mirza went on to say,
“MS Dhoni really reminds me of my husband Shoaib Malik in terms of personality. It is uncanny how similar they are. They are quiet but funny. On the field, they are very cool. In many ways, Dhoni is like Shoaib.”
Sania Mirza also expressed that the former players should be a part of sports administrative bodies. She emphasized that every sport, especially tennis should implement this immediately as every former player knows how to correct the mistakes and understands the game more than anyone else.
“I think the ex-players should get involved because they are the only people who have the experience to say what should and should not happen, what can and can’t happen,” said Sania.
Sania Mirza started her career as a Tennis player in 2003, and since then, she has achieved enormous success in the last 17 years.
