Gautam Gambhir gave examples of how MS Dhoni, when he was the captain, had removed senior players from the team to introduce younger players. The former player wants Team India to follow the same principle and make a team for the future, as we need to be strong in all departments.

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has said it’s important to be practical than emotional when it comes to taking a call on the future of MS Dhoni’s international cricket. Gambhir pointed out that MS Dhoni, during his time as captain, always wanted to look into the future and gave youngsters a lot of opportunities.

MS Dhoni invested in future during his captaincy days – Gautam Gambhir

There is intense speculation that Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has already retired from the Test format, has played his last ODI for India during the World Cup in which the team was knocked out of the semifinal after a loss to New Zealand.

The selection panel will meet on Sunday to pick squads for the West Indies tour. The intense focus will be on Dhoni’s future and Gambhir said it is time to keep emotions aside.

‘It’s important to look into the future. And when Dhoni was the captain, he invested in the future. I remember Dhoni saying in Australia that me, Sachin and Sehwag can’t play the CB series (in Australia) together as the grounds were big. He thought young players were needed for the next World Cup. It’s necessary to take practical decisions than being emotional,’ Gambhir added.

It is not the first time that Gautam Gambhir talked about MS Dhoni. Recently, the cricketer-turned-politician hailed Dhoni as one of the best captains. But said it is unfair to give all credit to him for India’s success and also slam him when the team fails to perform.

India will travel to West Indies to play a series consisting of 3 T20Is and as many ODIs that starts on August 3. It has been speculated Dhoni might not be picked for the series. There are also reports that MS Dhoni is not considered as the regular wicket-keeper from now.
