Gambhir takes a dig at Dhoni’s rotation policy
Former Indian left-handed batsman Gautam Gambhir made a critical statement on former Indian skipper MS Dhoni’s rotation policy he used for senior players in the team.
Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir is always known for making critical statements on India’s World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni. Now the former cricketer made a comment on MS Dhoni regarding the rotation policy used by MS Dhoni during the early preparations for ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
MS Dhoni used the rotation policy in the ODI side with the senior players like Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, and Sachin Tendulkar during the Tri-series with Australia and Sri Lanka in 2012 in Australia. But India failed to move to the final of the series and MS Dhoni faced many criticisms during that time.
Gautam Gambhir termed the rotation policy made my MS Dhoni as a complete cr*p.Gambhir said that he obeyed the captain’s decision at that time as a respect, but he knew that it was a complete waste one.
“I believe that one should follow the captain’s decision but it was complete cr*p. You started with the rotation policy but played all the three in the must-win games. If you make a decision, back your decision, stick to it.” Gautam Gambhir told in his interview.
“I was made to feel secure just once. During that phase only, I became the ICC Test Player of the Year. India won the triangular series just once in Australia and I was the highest run-scorer. India won a Test series once in 40 years in New Zealand and I was the Man of the Series. I score five consecutive hundreds. This is why it is important to make young players feel secure,” he added.
