Dhoni sent Sam Kuren, Rituraj Gaikwad and Kedar Jadhav before him. Gambhir said, ‘To be honest I was surprised. MS Dhoni at number 7. Rituraj Gaikwad and Sam Curren preceded them. What did it mean You must lead from the front.

He said, ‘It does not say to lead from the front. Batting at number 7, chasing a target of 217 runs. Faf continued to fight the fort alone. If someone else had done this, there would be a lot of criticism. But since he is Dhoni, people are not even talking about it.

Gambhir, who has played 58 Tests and 147 ODIs for India between 2003 and 2016, said, “There is no harm in getting out early but at least the team should be motivated. What did you do in the last over (3 sixes in 3 balls). If we had done this earlier, the result would have been different.

He said, ‘Maybe there was no desire for victory. After the first 6 overs, it seemed that they had given up hope. MS was trying till the end to return the team to the match so that such innings could be played in the upcoming matches. You can talk of MS Dhoni’s three sixes but what is the use of them? That was his personal run.
