Former Indian team batsman Gautam Gambhir says that Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni should play the upper order instead of number-7. Dhoni was dismissed without opening an account in the first match of this season of IPL. Gambhir said that the former captain of the Indian team was no longer the player who used to put a boundary on arrival.
Leaders should lead from the front
Gambhir said, “Dhoni should play at the top order, because it is important to lead the team from the front.”
He said, “It is known to all that a leader should lead from the front. If you are going to bat at number seven, then you cannot lead. “
The former Kolkata Knight Riders captain said that there is some problem in the bowling lineup of Chennai but Dhoni’s playing the upper order can be beneficial for the team.
Gambhir said, “There are some problems in Chennai’s bowling department. Apart from this, Dhoni is no longer the same as he was five years ago where he used to get off the pitch and bat explosively from the beginning. I think he should land at number four or five. “
