Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s inconsistent batting form for Rising Pune Supergiant in the ongoing Vivo IPL 2017 had been under the scanner. Even ex-India skipper Sourav Ganguly is said to have questioned MS Dhoni’s current abilities.

Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir however has backed MS Dhoni in his latest column. “There is no one like a finisher or a starter. Ultimately, the one who scores the winning run is a finisher, irrespective of whether he’s an opening batsman or No 11. What matters is how much you are contributing. If you can win matches for your team, you are a finisher,” Gautam Gambhir said while talking to the media before KKR’s Vivo IPL 10 match against Rising Pune Supergiant.

MS Dhoni made 61 on Saturday, but had a bad game again against Mumbai Indians on Monday. “Here (in India), we start criticising if someone has one or two bad matches. He (Dhoni) is a quality player and we all know what he has done for India and the IPL. It is an important game, and rather than thinking what he can do, I think what KKR will do is all that matters,” added Gautam Gambhir.

On the challenge of facing Rising Pune Supergiant, Gautam Gambhir said, “That is very good for the team because if everyone is contributing, it is a great sign for any team. And that is what we want in KKR as well. We don’t want to be dependent on one or two people; we want to be dependent on everyone. If everyone starts performing, starts chipping in, because in the T20 format, there will be players who would end up getting one or two important wickets and there will be people who will get 10-ball 20.

“So those teams are obviously far more dangerous than the teams who are dependent on one or two individuals because it’s not assured that one or two individuals are going to perform in every game, but there is far more assuredness of 11 individuals chipping in, in important situations. If Pune is doing that then it is a great sign for the team,” added Gautam Gambhir.
