Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir said the batting form of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Eoin Morgan shouldn’t be compared, as the two captains are set to battle out for the IPL 2021 title in Dubai on Friday (October 15).
Both Dhoni and Morgan have been badly struggling for runs in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) as the CSK captain could manage only 114 runs in 15 games while the KKR skipper scored 129 runs in 16 games so far in the tournament. However, they led the teams brilliantly in the IPL 2021.
Well, Dhoni has shown some form in the last couple of games, but Morgan has continued to struggle with the bat and Chopra termed the England captain’s form as worst when compared to CSK skipper.
Gambhir told ESPNcricinfo: “He (Morgan) started the tournament batting at number five because he had no form. He keeps pushing himself down and the moment you start pushing yourself down you start putting extra pressure on yourself.”
He concluded, “You can’t compare forms of both the captains because MS hasn’t played international cricket for quite a while and Morgan is playing and is leading England in international cricket as well. From the form point of view, Morgan looks in the worst form as compared to what Dhoni is.”
