Gambhir criticizes Dhoni
Gambhir has repeatedly blamed Dhoni for his removal from the national team. Furthermore, Gambhir has repeatedly criticized Dhoni for praising him on his victory at the ODI World Cup. This provoked opposition from Dhoni fans. Gambhir has yet to comment on Dhoni’s inclusion in the World Cup squad, even after his retirement.

Entering the coaches arena
Dhoni’s excellence as a captain is one of the reasons for making him an advisor. Dhoni can anticipate the game and put pressure on his opponent through dynamic movements. As captain, Dhoni has won all three ICC titles for the country. This will be Dhoni’s first step to retire after retirement.
