Gautam Gambhir bets one record that is going to stay with Dhoni forever
New Delhi : Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has formally announced his retirement from all formats of the international cricket with a video post on social media.
Reactions and wishes are pouring in from all corners. Former India batsman Gautam Gambhir also lavished praise on the career MS Dhoni has had. He said that Dhoni’s record of winning three ICC trophies is not going to be broken.
"One record if you talk about, which is going to stay forever is MS Dhoni’s three ICC trophies. I don’t think so any other captain would ever be able to achieve that! I think, whether it the T20 World Cup, whether it is ICC Champions Trophy or 2011 World Cup," Gambhir said on Star Sports’ ‘Cricket Connected’ show.
"I think that is something which is going to stay forever, and I can bet, that’s going to stay forever! I think 100s will eventually get broken, someone will come and probably score more double 100s than Rohit Sharma, but I don’t think so any Indian captain would be able to achieve three ICC trophies, so MS Dhoni’s going to be there to stay forever!"
However, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has retired from cricket, but his fans can watch him play in the upcoming season of Indian Premier League. He will be seen captaining the Chennai Super Kings.
13th edition of the tournament will be played from September 19 in the UAE.
