Team India’s former cricketer Gautam Gambhir has kept his mind on the discussion on Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Retirement from International Cricket. Gambhir has certainly taken the stance of politics but he keeps his side on important issues related to cricket. Since World Cup 2019, it has been continuously being discussed that how long will Mahendra Singh Dhoni retire from international cricket. After Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir has also made his stand.
If considered to be serious, then think about it as an emotional but not practical. Dhoni is currently 38 and many legendary cricketers believe that he should now say goodbye to international cricket. In the last World Cup, Team India reached the semi-finals, but during this period Dhoni had to face a lot of criticism about slow batting.
Dhoni did this in the CB series
Dhoni scored 273 runs in 9 matches, but his strike rate was only 87.78. Gambhir said on TV9 India: “It is important that you think about the future and when Dhoni was the captain himself, he had taken decisions about the future. I remember that in Australia, Dhoni said before the CB series that I, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag can not play in it because the grounds were big. He believed young players to be given a place in the team for the next World Cup. The practical decision should be taken on this, not emotional. ‘
New wicket-keeper batsman to be prepared
Gambhir believes that Team India should prepare a new wicketkeeper-batsman for the 2023 World Cup. Gambhir said, “India now has the chance that young cricketers should be given an opportunity to play. Whether he is Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson Ho or Ishan Kishan. These wicket-keepers should get the chance and should see how much they are. Everyone should get one and a half year time and if they do not perform well then the other should be given a chance.
