Srinagar: Former South Africa captain AB de Villiers echoed with the words of former India opener Gautam Gambhir that MS Dhoni didn’t win World Cup 2011 alone as cricket us team game.
While people mostly give credit to MS Dhoni 2011 triumph, Gambhir has been pretty vocal about Dhoni not being alone.
On Tuesday, for the first time, the ex-India opener has found a support from a legendary player himself, AB de Villiers, who shared the same view during a Q&A session with fans on YouTube.
“Cricket is a team game..A player alone doesn’t lifts the World Cup. On Twitter I see people saying Dhoni alone won the World Cup…But that’s not right..MS Dhoni did not win the world Cup , whole Team India won the World Cup. Ben Stokes did not lift the trophy in Lord’s in 2019, it was team England. There is a lot that goes into winning a World Cup from coaching staff to selectors, the board members, the players, the subs, everyone adds a little bit of potion to the mixture,” he said.
