There is no Place of MS Dhoni says Gautam Gambhir
M S Dhoni’s grim performance in the mega-event. Especially his unwillingness to England, which stopped Pakistan to reach the semi-finals, provoked great contempt for him by cricketers and international fans. It leaves scratches in his career as Gautam says there is no place for Dhoni.
Gautam, who delivered his verdict on the future of India’s former team captain, said it’s time for the youths to join the team. We are waiting for the perfect team in the World Cup in 2023.
The former opening batsmen also talked about the circumstances before the CB series in Australia. Where Dhoni wanted to expel Sehwag, Sachin and I as the grounds were larger for us.
Gambhir stated: I remember Dhoni saying in Australia that [Gambhir], Sachin and Sehwag can’t play the CB series (in Australia) together because the grounds were big for us to hit. Gambhir said further that young players are needed for the next Cup World Cup.”
There has always been a long debate about Dhoni’s replacement and the selectors are not keeping faith in a particular player.
Gambhir highlighted the names of three young landowners. He wants the selectors to give them a chance for the next series.
“India now has the opportunity to give young people opportunities. Whether it’s the Rishabh, Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan or any other wicket-keeper. The one who believes it has the potential should become the wicketkeeper of the Indian cricket team. Give him opportunities for a year and a half and, if he doesn’t show up, then others should also be tried. Then one might know who the guardian of the next World Cup is.”
