Mahendra Singh Dhoni an Amazing Captain and Strong Leader: Adam Gilchrist

Former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist contradicted Ian Chappell’s views, who had said Mahendra Singh Dhoni was not good enough to be India’s Test captain anymore after a string of failures overseas including England, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.MS Dhoni-India England ManchesterFormer Australia wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist on Friday said he did not agree with his countryman Ian Chappell’s demand for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to relinquish Test captaincy and hand over the reins to Virat Kohli.

I(Gilchrist ) have said it a number of times before that I have been very impressed with Dhoni right from the moment he arrived into the scene. He is an amazing captain and has won India T20 and ODI World Cups. India also reached the pinnacle by climbing to the number one spot in Test cricket,” he told reporters at an event organised by University of Wollongong, Australia.

Former Australia captain Chappell had said earlier this month that he did not find Dhoni good enough to be India’s Test captain anymore and said it was time to hand over the reins of the team to Kohli.

Dhoni clearly is a strong leader and a quality all-round cricketer, Gilchrist said adding that he is calm and is an extraordinary character.
