MS Dhoni was seen sporting the salt & pepper look in India's tour to England. While everyone praised the cricketer for his new look, Gautam Gambhir isn't very impressed with the new avatar of Dhoni.
Gambhir, during the second ODI, said he wants Dhoni to get rid of the look as he is looking way older than he actually is. The Delhi cricketer also added that the wicket-keeper is actually fit and can run faster than many youngsters in the team. So it is very unfair, according to him, to get a look which makes him seem like an old man.
"MS Dhoni looks 5-10 years older than he is at the moment and I think someone needs to tell him that he is looking far more older than he is. I think he is pretty much very fit, on the ground he is quick, he is as fit as any other youngster. I think the look makes him far more older than he is," said Gambhir.
Dhoni, who completed 10,000 ODI runs at Lord's in the second ODI, couldn't take his team to the victory. It was a slow innings by Dhoni when India needed their best finisher to fire and win the game. Also, the 37-year-old didn't get a partner to keep India alive in the chase.
Just like the T20I series India and England are set to play the series decider on June 17. Dinesh Karthik hasn't got an opportunity yet and it will be interesting to see if he gets a place in XI in the third ODI.
