Former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has picked up the better player between MS Dhoni and Adam Gilchrist. When asked who was better, the Pakistan wicket-keeper batsman was quick to anser that it’s Dhoni.
When asked who among Dhoni and Gilchrist is a better cricketer, Sarafraz said “MS Dhoni”.
Dhoni has been one of the most successful captains in world cricket becoming the only captain all the three ICC trophies til date. He led India to World T20 2007, ICC World Cup 2011 and Champions Trophy 2013 wins under his leadership.
Also, Dhoni has won the IPL thrice with his CSK side.
On the other side, Gilchrist has been a part of the Australian setup for a very long time having won three World Cups as a part of the team.
He too led Deccan Chargers to a win in the IPL’s second season.
Another trivia is that Dhoni broke Gilchrist’s record for the highest individual score by a wicket-keeper batsman in ODI cricket. Gilchrist’s 172 was overtaken by Dhoni when he struck 183* against Sri Lanka.
India and Pakistan last played each other in the World Cup 2019 match where The Men in Blue thumped Pakistan pretty convincingly. The Pakistan team subsequently faced a lot of criticism and heat from the fans.
A picture of Sarfaraz also went viral where he was seen yawning while the match was on. The former skipper faced backlash for this on social media.
