Mumbai: The second phase of IPL 2021 is going to start from September 19. Fans are eagerly waiting for this moment that which team will win this trophy this time. Before the start of this T20 turmoil, speculations are being made about many players. Meanwhile, former Indian team player Gautam Gambhir has given a statement about Dhoni.
Speak serious about Dhoni’s batting
Gambhir felt that it was finding it difficult for Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni to score runs quickly while batting after retiring from international cricket.
He said, ‘Dhoni is such a player who comes down to number four or fifth. But we saw in the first leg that he was landing in sixth or seventh position. There came a time when he put Sam Karen before himself. The reason behind this is that he is probably trying to mold into a mentor and wicketkeeper, who can lead and keep the wicket.
Gambhir said, ‘It is getting difficult for Dhoni because once you stop playing international cricket, IPL becomes a very difficult tournament. You have to face top quality bowlers in IPL.
Gambhir gave important advice to Gayle
Former Team India player Gautam Gambhir believes that Chris Gayle should bat in the opening for his team Punjab Kings in the second phase of IPL 2021. He also said that it would be incomprehensible to play Gayle at number three.
Gambhir said, ‘Gayle should open. If Gayle is in your team then why do you want to play him at No. There is no point in playing him at number three. Windies and Punjab Kings did this. I don’t know why they did this. If Gayle is included in the XI, he should come as an opener as he doesn’t waste the ball. At number-3, he has to take singles than the opening’.
