IPL 2020: Good opportunity for Dhoni to bat at no 3 in Raina's absence, feels Gambhir

IPL 2020: Good opportunity for Dhoni to bat at no 3 in Raina's absence, feels Gambhir

New Delhi, Aug 31 (UNI) Former India opener Gautam Gambhir feels MS Dhoni should bat higher up the order for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020 and promote himself to No 3 slot in absence of Suresh Raina.
CSK will be missing the services of their vice-captain and highest run-scorer, Suresh Raina in IPL 2020 after he decided to return home due to personal reasons.
Two-time IPL-winning captain Gambhir believes CSK need some experienced player batting at No 3 and with Raina not being there, Dhoni should take up that responsibility as a batsman for the franchise.
"It will be a good opportunity for MS Dhoni to come and bat at no 3. And he has been away from the game for the last one year, so he would end up getting a lot more balls to face and then he can actually play the anchor innings as well which he has been doing for India for the last couple of years,' Gambhir said on Star Sports' show Cricket Connected.
"So, MS Dhoni at No 3 and then they have got depth with Kedar Jadhav, Dwayne Bravo, Sam Curran, all those guys they can come in. So, I think it is going to be a great opportunity for someone like MS Dhoni and I am sure he is going to relish that. Also, Suresh Raina not being there, you want to have some experienced player batting at No 3, so it could be MS Dhoni now,' he added.
The 13th edition of IPL is scheduled to being on September 19 and will be played in Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
