Dhoni cannot be put under pressure, feels Gambhir

New Delhi:

Gautam Gambhir has full faith in his skipper and said on Sunday that nothing can put pressure on MS Dhoni and his style of captaincy and cricket.

In Kolkata to shoot for an episode of a TV show which is hosted by former India skipper Sourav Ganguly, the Telegraph quoted Gambhir as telling him that Dhoni is always under control. "He is a real cool customer. It seems nothing can put him under pressure. Whatever the situation, he is always under control," he said.

Gambhir also appreciated Dhoni's style of giving every player a chance to prove his skills. "The best thing about his captaincy is he backs the newcomers a lot... He makes sure that every player gets enough chance to prove himself," he said, adding that this is similar to what Ganguly himself was credited for.

The Delhi batsman was also appreciative of Virender Sehwag when asked about batting with the prince of Najafgarh. "He (Sehwag) makes batting so easy. He will start hitting the ball from the very first delivery, irrespective of the nature of the pitch or who he is facing. Even when the ball is doing quite a bit, he'll hit a four and then say that there's nothing in the pitch," he laughed.
