“He will never be Dhoni,” said Gautam Gambhir


Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) retired from all forms of international cricket a few months ago. Not only was Dhoni a good captain or batsman, he was also a world-class wicketkeeper. Which is why the Indian cricket team has not had to worry about wicketkeepers so far. But who will be the next wicketkeeper in the Indian team after Dhoni retires from all forms of cricket? Thinking about that has started.

As Dhoni's next wicketkeeper, the selectors of the Indian Cricket Board have been thinking of Rishav Pant for so long, especially in the T20 and ODIs. However, Indian selectors have not been satisfied with the way Rishabh Panth has performed in international cricket over the years. So Panthak had to be dropped from the Australia tour. Riddhiman Saha of Bengal got a chance in the Test instead of Panth. On the other hand, Sanju Samson has been kept with KL Rahul in T20 and ODI. In other words, it is clear that the selectors can no longer rely on this method.

In such a situation, Gautam Gambhir, the former India opener, made a special comment on Rishabh Panth. Gautam Gambhir said, “Rishabh can never be Dhoni. The media should stop comparing Panth with Dhoni this time. Because it is putting extra pressure on the cult. He is not able to play his own game. Rishabh should go his own way, not in the way shown by Dhoni. Gambhir also claimed that Panth still needs to improve his batting and wicket-keeping.
