Gautam Gambhir has said that MS Dhoni didn't give enough quality players to Virat Kohli

The former India opener opined that Ganguly gave India world-beaters

Kohli has been leading Team India across all formats since 2017

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir is of the opinion that MS Dhoni didn't give enough 'quality players' to his successor Virat Kohli, who took over full-time leadership job in 2017. Gambhir, who made his Test comeback under Kohli, opined that India only had Kohli and Rohit Sharma following the retirement of legends while Sourav Ganguly, who led Team India for six years, gave India world-beaters who would go on to help Men in Blue win tournaments.

“When MS Dhoni finished [his captaincy stint], he hasn't given enough quality players to Virat Kohli, apart from Virat Kohli himself and Rohit Sharma, or Jasprit Bumrah now. There are not too many world-beaters, or probably people who win you tournaments,” Gambhir was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. 

“But look at what Sourav Ganguly gave to Indian cricket: Yuvraj Singh, Man of the Series in two World Cups [Yuvraj was only Man of the Series in the 2011 World Cup; Shahid Afridi was Man of the Series in the 2007 World T20], Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Virender Sehwag - these kinds of world-beaters,” he added.

Ganguly, who first took over the job in 1999, captained India to 21 wins in 49 Tests. In 146 ODIs, Team India 76 games under him. They also won the NatWest Series in 2002 and made it to the final of the 2003 World Cup, where they were defeated by mighty Australia.

Talking of Dhoni, he stunned the cricketing universe when Team India won the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup. Four years later, Men in Blue won the 2011 50-over World Cup. In 2013, Dhoni became the first-ever captain to lead a team to all three ICC trophies when India won the Champions Trophy. It remains to be India's last ICC title victory. They did make it to the second round of next three ICC tournaments under data that is encouraged. data
