Former Indian team opener Gautam Gambhir recalled the days he spent in the same room with Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Gambhir said on a Star Sports show, ‘We were room mates for over a month and we used to talk only about hair, because then they had long hair. How he handles these hairs, similar things used to happen.
Gautam Gambhir said, “We remember the days of sleeping on the ground, because the room was very small and the first week we were thinking how to make this room bigger.”
Gautam Gambhir said, ‘We got the bed out of the room and we put the mattress on the ground and started sleeping. Those were good days, because we were both young at that time.
Gambhir believes that Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been a very fortunate captain, as he got an amazing team in every format.
Former India team opener Gautam Gambhir said that former fast bowler Zaheer Khan is behind the success of Dhoni as captain.
Gautam Gambhir said, ‘The reason for Dhoni to become such a successful captain in Test cricket is Zaheer Khan. It was his good luck that Dhoni got, the credit goes to Ganguly. According to me, Zaheer has been India’s best world class fast bowler.
Gautam Gambhir said, ‘Dhoni has been a very lucky captain, because he got an amazing team in every format. The 2011 World Cup was very easy for Dhoni, as we had players like Sachin, Sehwag, myself, Yuvraj, Yusuf and Virat. So he got the best team while Ganguly had to work hard for this and due to which Dhoni won so many trophies.
