Dhoni amazing captain, a strong leader: Gilchrist
Former Australia wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist on Friday said he did not agree with his countryman Ian Chappell’s demand for MS Dhoni relinquishing Test captaincy and hand over the reins to Virat Kohli. ‘I have said it number of times before that I am very impressed with Dhoni right from the moment he arrived into the scene.

He is an amazing captain and has won India T20 and ODI World Cups and also India reached the pinnacle by reaching the number one spot in Test cricket,’ he told reporters here at an event organised by University of Wollongong, Australia. Dhoni clearly is a strong leader and a quality all-round cricketer, Gilchrist said adding that he is calm and is an extraordinary character. Asked about India’s chances in the upcoming Test series in Australia, Gilchrist said all the teams hold the home ground advantage at the moment and that is reflected in the performances of India, England and Australia. ‘As of now the teams are maintaining home ground advantage at the moment. You can see Australia, India and England - they have not done well abroad,’ he said.
