Many former cricketers had strongly criticized Dhoni for being responsible for India’s defeat in second Twenty20 between India and New Zealand in Rajkot. Those who have criticized Dhoni include VVS Laxman, Ajit Agarkar, Akash Chopra and Sourav Ganguly. These cricketers advised Dhoni to get out of T20 and give chance to a young player. Former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored 49 runs in 36 balls in this match. They had batted very slow in terms of expectations, due to which India was far behind in this match and New Zealand had defeated India in this match. Dhoni was criticized after this match. While the number of people criticizing Mahi is increasing, on the other hand there is no shortage of supporters. Virender Sehwag, Ravi Shastri and former wicketkeeper batsman Syed Kirmani came in front of Dhoni’s support. Syed Kirmani, who had criticized Dhoni for his criticism, had fiercely put up a class and said that what is his status in front of Dhoni ?
Now a new name has been added to Dhoni’s support. This name is the name of the left-handed batsman Gautam Gambhir. Gautam Gambhir has also come in support of Dhoni. He got the news of those who criticized Dhoni. Gambhir said that what Dhoni has done for Indian cricket is not hidden from anyone. The other cricketers who have achieved Dhoni’s achievements are not fortunate enough. Therefore, those who criticize Dhoni should first think what they are saying. Gautam Gambhir said that it is not okay to make Dhoni responsible for the defeat of the Indian team at all times. No one does not want to be praised by him, but as soon as there is a shortage, all of them begin to criticize him. Critics should think that Dhoni alone does not play in the team, except Dhoni, the other 10 players fall into the match, so the defeat is won by the entire team, not the player alone.
Gambhir said that he played under the guidance of Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, Sehwag and Dhoni, but most of them came under the captaincy of Dhoni. They said that we both are around the same age, so we enjoyed the game and enjoyed it very much. Gambhir said that Dhoni always tried to keep things normal. They never react much on anything. This same quality of Dhoni makes him great.
After Gautam Gambhir was out of the team, his relationship with Dhoni did not remain much better. On many occasions, Gambhir has also criticized Dhoni, so Gambhir did not expect any such statement about Dhoni.
