Sachin deserving candidate for Bharat Ratna: Dhoni
"Yes, 200 per cent, because he is an ideal candidate, he has served the country for 21 years with a few more to come.
As a cricketer, you know, if he doesn`t get it, then I don`t think there`s anyone who`ll get the Bharat Ratna ever," Dhoni said.
"I think he`s done really great things for the country, taking cricket to the next level. He`s known even in places where they don`t know about the game, so I think it`s a very big achievement taking the country forward. He`s done remarkably," the Chennai Super Kings skipper said at a press meet to kickstart the IPL`s fourth season, starting on Friday.
The Dhoni-led CSK, which won the double of the IPL and Champions League title last season, open their season with a home game against a Gautam Gambhir-led Kolkata Knight Riders.
