Salman Butt on comparison of Rizwan to MS Dhoni

Former Pakistani cricketer Salman Butt has been quite active lately on his Youtube channel where he talks as a Cricket Analyst. The former left-hander was recently in the news for criticizing Sarfaraz Ahmed for which he received a cruel reply from the Quetta Gladiators captain.

When talking about the comparison between Rizwan and Dhoni, Salman Butt refused to compare the two and said that if Rizwan achieves in half of what Dhoni did, then the batter would earn a big name in the international cricket.

“Let’s not go that far. If he achieves even half of what Dhoni did, Rizwan will have a big name in international cricket. He is somebody who is very capable of doing that.” Butt said on his Youtube channel.

Rizwan had a fantastic T20 year in 2021 and became the only batsman who has scored more than 1000 runs in a calendar year. The batsman has also received accolades for his keeping also.

Dhoni, on the other hand needs no introduction. The legendary captain has achieved more than what India expected. It is only because of Dhoni that India had won all the ICC tournaments at the time of his playing. The four time IPL winning captain has been retained by the CSK franchise as the second choice. The year 2022 may be the last year for MS Dhoni in IPL.
