Director of Cricket South Africa Graeme Smith is all praise for former Indian Captain MS Dhoni saying that he doubts if there is anyone in the world who doesn’t go well with the former Indian Captain. Smith who is one of the most successful captains in cricket history said that Dhoni was calm & collected & he has lots of respect for the epic batsman.
“I seriously doubt that you probably find anyone in world cricket that didn’t get on with MS Dhoni,” Smith said on Star Sports show “Cricket Connected”.”He went about his business. He was calm, he was collected,” Smith added.
“And again, like Sanga, was to spend a fair amount of time with Dada – in administration, we are having a number of conversations over the telephone. He’s always calm, approachable, always interested in a good conversation, so a lot of respect for both men,” Smith said.
Former Indian batsman, Gautam Gambhir who was also the part of the Indian Squads that won the 2007 T0 World Cup & 2011 World Cup under the great leadership of MS Dhoni spoke on the show about his experience with Dhoni as his roommate during the early days of their careers. “We were roommates for more than a month and all we used to talk about was hair because he had those long hair and how he would maintain that hair and all that stuff,” Gambhir said.
“We remember sleeping on the floor because we had a very small room and the first week, we were discussing how to make this room look bigger,” he said. “So, we removed the bed out of the room and then we slept on the floor on the mattresses and it was a great moment because we both were young,” Gambhir added.
“MS just initially started playing international cricket, we went to Kenya together, Zimbabwe, India A tour together, we spent a lot of time together,” he said. MS Dhoni last played in the World Cup 2019 Semifinals against New Zealand in which India lost to New Zealand.
