Former India pacer S Sreesanth has given his take on Gautam Gambhir’s ‘sacrifice’ remark on Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The former India opener emphasized Dhoni’s role as captain of the national side and said it eclipsed his batting achievements in ODIs.
“Gautam Bhai said recently that Dhoni would have scored more runs had he batted at No.3. But for Dhoni, it was always about more victories than more runs. He always had the ability to finish games when the team needed him and he won two World Cups as well,” Sreesanth told Sportskeeda.
“Credit should go to Dhoni, but he didn’t sacrifice his batting position. He worked a way to find out which players would do well for the team in which position and then slot them in those positions accordingly. His captaincy had the ability to bring the best out of his players. He has always thought about the team first,” he added.
