Former Aussie wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist has said that MS Dhoni is offering great value to the Indian team, some of which perhaps it is unaware of.
"I think they probably benefit more than they know by his experience and him just being around. I wonder whether people around undervalue his experience and calmness that MS brings to the change room," Gilchrist told PTI.
Gilchrist added Dhoni is still good enough to bat anywhere. "I think he is so versatile that he could possibly play anywhere between Nos 3 to 7 and still have an impact. So, this Indian team is full of options and flexibility and MS just adds to that as he has throughout his career,” he said.
On Kohli, Gilchrist was quoted as saying in an NDTV report, "I am not aware of his statistics for the past 12 months or so but I don't think he has let the team down when he has been asked to do a job. I love Virat and all the Indian players' passion and aggression. It's always nice to be balanced up by some experience and wise head.”
