Drogba praises MSD’s leadership
The striker did however, follow the Indian Cricket team’s World Cup campaign last year and felt that Mahendra Singh Dhoni (right) is a good leader. “I know your (cricket) captain though I cannot pronounce his name. I followed the last (cricket) World Cup. The Indian team were the world champions. I think he (Dhoni) is a very good leader,” said the 34 year old.
