‘MS Dhoni Didn't Give Enough Quality Players To Virat Kohli, Sourav Ganguly Gave World-Beaters’, Says Gautam Gambhir; Dhoni Fans Hit Back
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is hailed as one of the greatest captains ever in the history of Indian cricket and is also considered one of the best tacticians the game has ever seen. Known for his leadership qualities, Dhoni led team India to great success and remains the only captain to have won T20 World Cup (2007), ODI World Cup (2011) and Champions Trophy (2013) and also led team India to the topmost position in ICC Test rankings. Gautam Gambhir, who played under both Dhoni and former skipper Sourav Ganguly, recently stated that MS Dhoni didn't give enough quality players to Virat Kohli, like Sourav Ganguly gave to India.

Gautam Gambhir was quoted saying by ESPNcricinfo, “When MS Dhoni finished (his captaincy stint), he hasn’t given enough quality players to Virat Kohli, apart from Virat Kohli himself and Rohit Sharma, or Jasprit Bumrah now. There are not too many world-beaters or probably people who win you tournaments.” He further stated the cricketers that Sourav Ganguly gave to India. “But look at what Sourav Ganguly gave to Indian cricket: Yuvraj Singh, Man of the Series in two World Cups [Yuvraj was only Man of the Series in the 2011 World Cup; Shahid Afridi was Man of the Series in the 2007 World T20], Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Virender Sehwag - these kinds of world-beaters,” said Gambhir.

His comments did not go down well with MS Dhoni fans who gave a strong reply pointing out all the brilliant players Dhoni gave when he stepped down from his captaincy. Take a look at some of the reactions:



Sourav Ganguly and MS Dhoni may both have had different styles while leading their teams on the field, they are counted among the most successful captains team India has ever seen. ALSO READ: Sakshi Singh REVEALS She Was Never A Fan Of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Iconic Long Orange Tresses – WATCH
