‘Aa gaye na line pe’ – Fans react to Gautam Gambhir heaping praise on MS Dhoni’s sacrifice for India

Gautam Gambhir spoke about how MS Dhoni batted lower down the order for the sake of the team.

Social media users have long believed that Gautam Gambhir had a grudge against MS Dhoni. Every time Gambhir discusses the 2011 World Cup, the same theme keeps coming up: how MS Dhoni has received all the spotlight but players like Yuvraj Singh have gone ignored. 

The captain is just as excellent as the entire group of players, he has also stated in the past. The perception continues to exist that he is taking a shot at MS Dhoni despite being aware that he has said it several times, during as well as his successful stint as captain of KKR in the IPL.

Now that Dhoni has joined the squad, Gambhir has made a statement mentioning him and claiming that it was a “blessing” to have him around. Gambhir spoke to StarSports during the show as he said, “MS (Dhoni) was the first wicketkeeper of India who could change the game with his batting. Earlier, they were keepers first and batters later, but MS was batter first and then was a wicketkeeper.”

The former Team India opener added that, “It was a blessing for Indian cricket that in MS Dhoni, we got a wicketkeeper-batter who can win you matches from No 7, because he had that power game.”

“I feel due to captaincy, he sacrificed the batter in him” : Gautam Gambhir

With 10,773 runs, 10 centuries, and 73 fifty-pluses, MS Dhoni completed his ODI career. But Gambhir believes that if Dhoni had batted at No. 3, he may have scored a lot more. Gambhir also mentioned how Dhoni was a selfless captain who prioritized the team above himself. The two time IPL winning skipper said that, “If MS would have batted at No 3, I am sure he could have broken several ODI records.”

He concluded by adding that, “People always talk about MS Dhoni and his achievements as a captain, which is absolutely true. But I feel due to captaincy, he sacrificed the batter in him, and he could have achieved much more with his bat which he did not. And this happens when you are a captain because then you put the team ahead, and you forget about yourself.”
