Gautam Gambhir Praised Mahendra Singh Dhoni: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the only captain of the Indian cricket team who has won trophies for the country in all categories. He won the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup final title by hitting sixes. People are unable to forget this six even today, but former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir, who had batted with him, has always opposed this. He believes that just one six by Mahendra Singh Dhoni could not have won the World Cup for the Indian team. However, this time Gautam Gambhir has praised Dhoni a lot, which is being discussed everywhere.

Former veteran batsman and BJP MP Gautam Gambhir has praised Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Gambhir emphasized that Dhoni’s captaincy responsibilities often overshadowed his individual batting achievements. During an interview, Gambhir said, “Dhoni could not achieve what he could have achieved as a batsman because of captaincy. He said that as a captain sometimes you have to put the team first. If Dhoni was not the captain, he could have batted at number 3. I am sure he could have broken many ODI records. He has won a lot of trophies, but individually he sacrificed his international runs for the sake of trophies.”
Dhoni has broken the tradition
Gautam Gambhir further said, “Where wicketkeepers are historically known for their skills behind the stumps and then for their brilliant batting, Dhoni has broken the tradition by becoming a strong batsman first and a wicketkeeper later.”

The former batsman has given some advice to Ishan Kishan regarding playing in the World Cup 2023. He believes that Ishan Kishan needs to bat well against the spinners.
