Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a name that needs no introduction in the world of cricket. Mahi, who captained the Indian cricket team for a long time, is also known as a very cool captain. Not only on the field but also in the dressing room, this former captain gives advice and instills confidence in the team members. This is something that everyone knows. But those are the words I want to hear again and again. If the players of the Indian team say those words..wouldn’t they be happier..One such video is going viral now. In that video, the young Indian player said in an interview that it was because of Dhoni that he was able to join the team and was able to stand effectively. He is not the young Indian player Shubman Gill.
India went there for an ODI series against New Zealand in 2019 and lost badly. In his first match under the captaincy of Dhoni, Gill played, Team India was bowled out for 92 runs, in which he scored only 9 runs. Gill said that he still remembers the words of MS Dhoni consoling him who was deeply disappointed in this process. “I was very depressed that day. I was only 19 years old then. Dhoni Bhai came to me feeling sad that the debut match had turned out like this. ‘Don’t worry. He said, ‘Your debut is better than mine.’

Because in the first match against Bangladesh, Dhoni faced only one ball and reached the pavilion as a duck out in the form of a run-out. Dhoni talked to me very funnily. This changed my mood. No one would expect a player of great stature to stand up like this. It not only surprised me, but I liked it a lot. I wish I could be like him,” recalls Gill.
Shubman Gill made his international debut against New Zealand less than three years ago. Gill, who made his ODI debut, performed consistently and cemented his place in the final team. India is currently on a tour of New Zealand for T20 and ODI bilateral series. Gill felt that the second T20 match held on Sunday will allow him to step into the international T20 format. But the game ended without him getting a place. But we have to wait and see if he will get a chance in the final T20 match on Tuesday. In this order, Shubmangil shared his past memories about his ODI debut in an interview.
