Former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir said MS Dhoni’s feat of Winning three ICC trophies will never be matched. MS Dhoni announced his retirement from all forms of International Cricket on Saturday. He retired as the only captain to win all major ICC trophies (ODI World Cup, T20 World Cup, and Champions Trophy).
The former India skipper shared a video on Instagram captioning it as “Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout. from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired.” and announced that he has retired from international cricket with immediate effect. The video had his moments representing Team India on the biggest stage with the iconic song ‘Mai Pal Do Pal Ka Shayar Hu’ from Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Kabhie Kabhie’ playing in the background.
I Don’t Think So Any Other Captain Would Ever Be Able To Achieve That
Gautam Gambhir said MS Dhoni’s record of winning all major ICC trophies as captain would remain untouched forever. Dhoni and Gambhir played a memorable 109 run partnership during the 2011 World Cup final against Sri Lanka to help the team clinch the title.
“One record if you talk about, which is going to stay forever is MS Dhoni’s three ICC trophies. I don’t think so any other captain would ever be able to achieve that. I think, whether it is the T20 World Cup, whether it is ICC Champions Trophy or 2011 World Cup. I think that is something which is going to stay forever, and I can bet, that’s going to stay forever.
“I think 100s will eventually get broken, someone will come and probably score more double 100s than Rohit Sharma, but I don’t think so any Indian captain would be able to achieve three ICC trophies, so MS Dhoni’s going to be there to stay forever,” he added.
