Gautam Gambhir may have become a politician but he is still not disillusioned with cricket. On that day, they make headlines by giving their feedback about cricket or its people. Gambhir, who is often a biographer about Dhoni, has once again reacted to Mahi. This time he has praised Mahi’s batting.
Gautam Gambhir said, “Mahendra Singh Dhoni would have broken all the batting records if he had reached number three in 50 overs cricket.” Gambhir was asked to choose between India’s current captain Virat Kohli and Dhoni.
Gambhir said during the Star Sports show Cricket Connected, “It is very difficult to compare the two because one comes in at number three and the other at number six or seventh. Gambhir said that had Dhoni landed at number three, he would have broken most of the batting records. He said, ‘Maybe I would have chosen MS Dhoni’.
Gambhir, stating the reason, said, “Dhoni batting at the third position on flat pitches and now the kind of bowling level in world cricket. Looking at the Sri Lankan, Bangladesh, West Indies team, it seems that Dhoni would have broken many records according to the current level of international cricket. ”
He further said, “Look at Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, West Indies. Given the level of international bowling, MS Dhoni would have carried most records to his name. ”
Gambhir, who was a member of the winning team of the World Cup 2007 and 2011, said that if Dhoni had not been the captain of India and landed at number three, he would have been the most entertaining batsman in the world.
Former India fast bowler Irfan Pathan was also present at the event. He also expressed his reaction to Dhoni and Kohli. He said that he would have chosen Kohli for the third number out of Dhoni and Kohli.
Pathan believes that “MS Dhoni got a chance at number three but he did not. I believe that Virat has a better technique for number three out of Virat and Dhoni. ”
Dhoni, who made his debut in international cricket in 2004, is also known for his captivity. He is named among the best captains. When Dhoni started his cricketing career, he was recognized as a non-traditional batting technique player with exceptional talent in the country.
Dhoni made his first century of his ODI career in 2005, batting in the third position against Pakistan. In the ODI against Pakistan played in Visakhapatnam, Dhoni batted in third order and faced 123 balls with explosive innings of 148 runs with the help of 15 fours and four sixes. Dhoni had scored 993 runs at an average of 82.75 while batting at number three in his career.
