The Australian legendary wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist revealed his favorite Indian captain in a recent press conference. He recognized MS Dhoni as the iconic captain same as former Australian captain Steve Waugh.
Gilchrist said,”I will give two answers, one from having played underneath and I think Steve Waugh is right there and I perceive MS (Dhoni), one having not played underneath.”
“MS I feel, apart from being a wonderful batsman, wonderful wicket-keeper and a great leader, his greatest quality that I have observed is his calmness under pressure. Of course he is Captain Cool, his calmness under siege or even when things are going well. Such is the passion for cricket in this country that exuberance can spill out of control and you can lose track of things but his calmness in any moment, he is able to bring consistency in emotion and that is admirable,” Gilchrist added.
He also rated Indian skipper Virat Kohli as perfect One Day International player, while AB de Villiers as the perfect Twenty-20 player. Gilchrist said,”I think Virat Kohli (perfect ODI player) at the moment. He is unstoppable. AB de Villiers comes to mind (for perfect T20 player) but I suppose you have to think more all-round so, a guy like Kieron Pollard is pretty really handy.”
