Gautam Gambhir on MS Dhoni:

How many times Gautam Gambhir has taken indirect digs at cricketers? How many times the ex-India opener has made headlines with his sensational remarks? Going by his own admission. The former India opener and two-time World Cup is well aware. His latest take on legendary cricketer MS Dhoni can spark a huge debate in the cricket spectrum.

On Sunday, Rohit’s Team India hammered Dasun Shanaka’s Sri Lanka to win the Asia Cup for the record-extending eighth time. A fast-bowling masterclass from Mohammed Siraj made sure that Sri Lanka registered its second-lowest total.

Gautam Gambhir on MS Dhoni: Indian skipper Rohit decided to promote wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan up the order as the youngster joined forces. With an on-song Shubman Gill to seal a 10-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final.

According to Gambhir, who shared the Indian locker room with Dhoni, the ex-India skipper would have batted at the No.3 position. If he had not led the side back then.

‘Because of captaincy, Dhoni couldn’t achieve what…’ Gautam Gambhir on MS Dhoni:

“Because of captaincy, he couldn’t achieve what he could have achieved as a batter. A lot of times as captain you have to keep team first. If MS was not captain, he could have batted at No 3. I am sure he could have broken several ODI records. He has won a lot of trophies, but individually he sacrificed his international runs for trophies,” Gambhir said.

Former Indian opener Gambhir was an integral part of the Dhoni-led side that won the ICC World T20 in 2007 and the 50-over World Cup in 2011. The ex-India cricketer and full-time cricket pundit asserted that it was a blessing to have a player like Dhoni in the team. “Earlier, they were keepers first and batters later, but MS was batter first and then was a wicketkeeper.
