Joy Bhattacharya Talks about the Difference between MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir’s Captaincy

Former India captain MS Dhoni is considered as one of the best cricketing minds in the world cricket over the years – be it for his role as a skipper, batsman or a wicketkeeper. There is no other player like him when it comes to the tactical acumen and with his bold decisions, he has won India many matches as well. However, he has always been referred to as Mr.Cool and someone who doesn’t express much on the field.

On the other hand, there is Gautam Gambhir, the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup hero who was always known to get under the opposition’s skin, if it goes in a wrong way. He further added that Gambhir has proved his calibre in the Indian Premier League as a captain as well.

While talking about the difference in the captaincy of the two players, former Kolkata Knight Riders Team Director Joy Bhattacharya said that they both have their own style and methods that bring success for the team too. He also added what made Kolkata Knight Riders one of the most successful under Gambhir’s leadership.

“Dhoni is Mr. Cool but Gambhir can never be cool. So What do you say when you have somebody like a Dhoni? He’s the coolest guy, they play chilled cricket, don’t worry about results, they’ll come just play cricket. He’s so calm that he’ll sort it out,” said Bhattacharya on ‘22 Yarns with Gaurav Kapoor.

“You can’t play narrative with Gautam. So what do you do when you have a Gautam in the team? You don’t say that he’s captain cool, he’s the guy who will take a bullet for his players, he’s got all passion. So when you’re standing with Gautam, you’ll never stand alone. So that’s what we did with KKR. It has worked for CSK, it has worked for MI and it worked for us as well, that’s the secret of a successful team. Successful teams are those which match their approach with the captain’s personality,” added Bhattacharya.
