IPL 2020: After Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag has now called MS Dhoni for his poor captaincy. Sehwag has rated Dhoni’s performance in CSK’s opening game as 4 out of 10, and has said that, ‘It looked like he wasn’t even trying’.
“I was a bit surprised to be honest,” Gambhir said.
“MS Dhoni batting at No. 7? And sending [Ruturaj] Gaikwad before him, Sam Curran before him. Makes no sense to me. In fact you should be leading from the front. And this is not what you call leading from the front. Batting at No. 7 when you’re chasing what… 213 ? The game was over. Faf was probably the lone warrior.
“Yes, you can talk about MS Dhoni’s last over [when he hit three sixes], but it was of no use to be honest. It was just all personal runs.”
