New Delhi, 16/4 (AO Bureau):Former India opener Gautam Gambhir believes that Mahendra Singh Dhoni should change his batting order and come up to bat. He also said that Dhoni needs to score more for his team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in IPL. Gambhir said that people should lead in the game and Dhoni also needs to change the batting order.
Gambhir, 39, told in a special conversation on the Star Sports show Cricket Live that why Dhoni needs to change his order in batting to score more. He said, ‘Dhoni should bat in the upper order, that matters because ultimately people lead from the front. We have been saying in advance that a leader needs to lead from the front.
Gambhir, who has played 58 Tests, 147 ODIs, and 37 T20 Internationals in his career, further said, ‘When you are batting at No. 7, you cannot be a leader. Yes, there are problems in their bowling line up as well. Also, that MS Dhoni is not what he used to be four or five years ago, where he used to come and ask the bowlers to move forward. I think they need to bat at number four-five. There is nothing in the lower order.
Gambhir has captained the two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL. He is counted among the best openers in the world. He was also a member of the 2011 World Cup winning team which India did under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
