Would have staged dharna if Dhoni quit playing, says Gavaskar

After M S Dhoni surprised everyone by stepping down as India's limited overs captain, former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar is glad that Dhoni has only quit limited overs captaincy and not retired as he feels Dhoni still has a lot to offer to the Indian team, as per the media reports.

“If he had quit as a player, then I would have the been the first one outside his house, having a dharna asking him to make a comeback. As a player, he is still a destroyer. He change fortunes of the game in a single over. India needs him as a player very very badly. I am happy that he has decided to stay on as a player,” Gavaskar told NDTV.

The poster boy of Jharkhand not being captain anymore will help both his batting and wicketkeeping, said Gavaskar.

"Yes (it will). Virat would definitely use him at number 4 or 5 because having him further down the order doesn't make any sense. Yes, he is a finisher but he can play a big innings at 4 or 5 and still end up as a finisher.

"The wicketkeeping will be a lot easier because he will not be thinking about the bowling changes and field placements, which can sometimes distract you," felt Gavaskar.

The former India captain also sees Dhoni and heir apparent Virat Kohli complementing each other on the field.
