"I don't think a tournament like the IPL should be MS Dhoni's selection criteria, it's probably just a talking point." .
Both were speaking at a webinar organised by the Great Lakes Institute of Management.
Mentioning his last worldwide match, Nehra wants to show how Dhoni's presence was important for the Indian team.
The former India captain added, "They understand talent and they've obviously got a good scouting process in place".
Srinivasan also spoke about how Dhoni's instinct and judgement contributed to his team's success at a time when a lot of emphasis is placed on data. We're awash with data just now. To give you an example, there are many bowling coaches and in T20 matches they play videos of every batsman against whom they have to play and they see how they got out, what is their strength and what is their weakness.
After a long break due to the coronavirus pandemic, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni will be back in action playing for the past year runners-up Chennai Super Kings and will try to take them to another title.
Further, Srinivasan spilt beans on how Dhoni used to leave the strategy sessions mid-way, while coach Stephen Fleming and the rest attended meticulously.
"In the context of instinct, he feels that okay he can assess a batsman or player on the field, that's his judgment". On the other hand, there is so much data that is available to help a person also analyse.
Srinivasan spoke on how data is such an important part of pre-match team meetings these days, but added that it is hard top draw a line between numbers and instinct. He also recalled an instance when Dhoni had refused to take "one outstanding player" in CSK because he had said the player would break the team's cohesion. "If you're a selector, you're a captain, you're a coach and MS Dhoni the most important thing if he is ready to play like he will be my number one name on the list".
Dhoni's last played in July 2019 when India lost to New Zealand in the semi-final of 2019 World Cup.
