Gautam Gambhir has always been someone who is a straight-talker and has continued his no-nonsense approach even post retirement. His love-hate relationship with MSD is also very much in the public domain. This time again Gambhir has made a statement that Dhoni fans might not be too fond of.
With the chances of the IPL looking bleak, many experts have come out in the open and questioned how Dhoni can get back into the Indian team. The wicket-keeper was heavily reliant on the IPL to make a comeback and Indian coach Ravi Shastri had publicly stated that a good IPL can well and truly put Mahi back in the national reckoning.
Gambhir has also weighed in on the topic and said “If the IPL doesn’t happen this year, then it will be very difficult for MS Dhoni to make a comeback. On what basis can he be selected since he’s not playing for the last one or one and a half year.” It will be interesting to see how social media will react to this latest statement from the southpaw.
