Recently IPL trends were all about two legendary cricketers, Sourav Ganguly and M.S Dhoni. Just a few days back, Sourav Ganguly had raised a question on the skills of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and doubted if he was really fit to play the T20 series.
Here is what Sourav Ganguly tweeted earlier, “I am not too sure if Dhoni is a good T20 player. He is a champion ODI player but when it comes to T20 cricket, in 10 years, he has got one fifty and that’s not the best record,”
There was a lot of criticism on social media but Sourav defended himself saying, “MS Dhoni has created that sort of a fan-following. People will say — why do you criticize him? It was the same for me when I was dropped in 2006. I don’t have any problem with that.”
However, with yesterday’s performance of Pune v/s Kolkata, M.S Dhoni scored 23 off 11 balls with a four and two sixes. However, it was Gautam Gambir who gave an epic statement and brought a rest to all the rumors on M.S Dhoni.
The Delhi-born batsmen Gautam Gambhir has worked under several captains including Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli during his illustrious career, and hence it would have been difficult for him to name the best captain out of the above list.
However, the KKR Captain decided to choose M.S Dhoni as the best captain ever. Gautam has played with some of the Indian team captains but picking up M.S Dhoni as the best captain has given a mouth shutting response to people who criticized Dhoni for his skills.
