MS Dhoni Must Continue Playing Cricket If He Is Fit And In Form, Says Gautam Gambhir
The former batsman and current Lok Sabha member said that Dhoni should continue playing because no one can actually force anyone to retire.
Former India opener Gautam Gambhir, on Saturday (July 25), said Mahendra Singh Dhoni must continue playing international cricket as long as he feels he is fit, in form and enjoying the game. The World Cup-winning swashbuckler, on a sabbatical from cricket for the past one year, turned 39 on July 7. He has not played any cricket since India’s semi-final exit from the ODI World Cup last year. Gambhir, who played a lot of cricket with Dhoni, said, “Age is just a number I think, if you are in a very good form and if you are hitting the ball really well.”
“MS Dhoni, if he is hitting the ball really well, if he is in very good form, if he is enjoying the game and if he thinks that he can still win the game for the country at that number – especially at six and seven,, then he should continue playing because no one can actually force anyone to retire,” added. “A lot of experts can put a lot of pressure on people like MS Dhoni because of their age and stuff but again it’s an individual decision, as when you started playing cricket it was your individual decision,” signed off Gambhir.
