MS Dhoni’s record of being the only captain to win all the three ICC Trophies is unlikely to be broken in the future, feels former Indian opener-turned politician Gautam Gambhir.
MS Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket via an Instagram post on August 15, bringing curtains on a celebrated 15-year-old career in which he impinged himself as not only one of the greatest finishers of the game but also as the greatest white-ball captain that the game has ever seen.
Dhoni made his captaincy debut in the 2007 World T20, where he led a young Indian team to the titular heist. The enigmatic former Indian captain went on to add two more ICC titles to his kitty in the former 2011 World Cup at home and 2013 Champions Trophy in England to complete a rare treble.
No one will break MS Dhoni’s three ICC Trophies record- Gautam Gambhir
And, Gambhir reckons that the record is going to stay forever as he doesn’t see any captain winning as many as three ICC trophies in the future. He also added that records of most 100s or double hundreds could well be broken in the future but that will not be the case with MS Dhoni’s record of three ICC trophies.
“One record if you talk about, which is going to stay forever is MS Dhoni’s three ICC trophies. I don’t think so any other captain would ever be able to achieve that. I think, whether it is the T20 World Cup, whether it is ICC Champions Trophy or 2011 World Cup. I think that is something which is going to stay forever, and I can bet, that’s going to stay forever,” Gautam Gambhir said on Star Sports show ‘Cricket Connected’
“I think 100s will eventually get broken, someone will come and probably score more double 100s than Rohit Sharma, but I don’t think so any Indian captain would be able to achieve three ICC trophies, so MS Dhoni’s going to be there to stay forever,” he added.
