Expect Kohli and Rohit to prepare youth as Dhoni did: Gambhir
NEW DELHI: Former Cricket Player from India Gautam Gambhir wait current captain Virat Kohli and its deputy in limited Rohit Sharma to prepare talented young men who enter the team in the same way as the former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni used to do during his time at the helm.
Citing an example from Rohit, Gambhir stated that Dhoni believed in his abilities despite being on and off the team and that MSD's endorsement ultimately led him to become one of the best white ball cricket players in the world.
The young cricketers of today's generation today, whether Shubman Gill or Sanju Samson It should also receive a similar kind of support, Gambhir told Sports Tak.
And now, when Rohit is a senior, I hope he supports the young. Rohit is an excellent example of how a player can become a phenomenal cricket player, if he has good backing.
One good thing about MS (Dhoni) was that he always kept Rohit in the talks, even if he wasn't part of the team. He never left him out, he added.
"I expect Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma to groom the youngsters in the same way in which Ms dhoni prepared them.
After making his debut in 2007, Rohit languished in the middle order with consistency being his Achilles heel. Dhoni apparently took note of Rohit's hidden talent and gave him a long rope. He then promoted Rohit to starter in 2013 and the right-hander hasn't looked back since.
