Gautam Gambhir does not consider MS Dhoni the best captain of IPL, the reason given

Gautam Gambhir is the former India opener.

This season’s IPL is over after two halves. Chennai Super Kings have lifted the IPL trophy for the fourth time. This team could not even reach the playoffs last season, which happened for the first time in the history of the league. But this time the team led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) made a great comeback and won the trophy. Dhoni is the captain who has taken Chennai to the playoffs every time except a season and has also taken them to the finals several times. He is counted among the most successful captains of IPL. Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has spoken about the most successful captain of IPL.

When Gambhir was asked on ESPNcricinfo’s show Yes or No, whether Dhoni is the all-time great captain of the IPL, this player denied it outright. Gambhir gave the logic of statistics behind his answer. Gambhir said, “No. Rohit Sharma is the most successful captain of IPL because one (Dhoni) has four titles while the other (Rohit) has five titles.

Said this on Chennai’s campaign

Regarding Chennai’s title campaign, Gambhir said that the opening pair of this team did a great job and brought success to the team. Chennai’s Faf du Plessis and Rituraj Gaikwad’s opening pair together scored 756 runs this season. In both of these, Gaikwad managed to win the Orange Cap by two runs. Gaikwad scored 635 runs and Faf scored 633 runs. Gambhir said, “This pair played a big role in the success of the team to a large extent but not 100 percent because apart from Moeen Ali, Robin Uthappa, the bowlers of the team also showed a strong game. But yes, both of them have played an important role. The kind of form he has shown is commendable.”

who will retain

Next season two new teams will come and there will be a big auction for the league. In Ace, the franchisees will have a limited number to retain. Every team will go through the dilemma of which player to retain and who should not. Gambhir has told who should retain Chennai. When Gambhir was asked why Chennai should retain Faf, Ravindra Jadeja and Dhoni? To this Gambhir said, “It depends on what is Dhoni’s role. Will he play or not? But if I have to retain three players, I will retain Gaekwad, Jadeja and du Plessis.
