Cricket News: Indian cricketer Parthiv Patel has made a big disclosure about former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He has told why Dhoni got a chance in Team India in his place for a long time. Many people believe that after Dhoni’s arrival in Team India, wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel got discharged. Parthiv answered the biggest question about this in a talk show.
Parthiv made his international debut at the age of 17
Parthiv Patel is one of those Indian cricketers who debuted in international cricket at a very young age. In 2002, he made his international debut in a Test match against England. At that time Parthiv Patel was only 17 years old. After this, he played 25 Test matches, 48 ODIs and two T20 matches for Team India. However, after the arrival of Dhoni, he got very few chances in the team.
Parthiv’s disclosure about Dhoni
When he was asked in the talk show, did you not get opportunities because of Dhoni’s arrival in Team India? On this Parthiv Patel said that he does not consider himself unlucky in this matter. He got a chance to play in Team India before Dhoni. But they could not take proper advantage of it. According to international cricket, his performance was not good and due to this he was dropped from the team. He said that he had played 19 Test matches before being dropped from the team, so it would not be correct to say that he did not get enough chances.
Said this about the current Indian team
Parthiv Patel believes that when he made his debut in Team India, there were legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman in the Indian team. Team India was good at that time, but the team led by Virat Kohli is stronger. They believe that this team has the ability to win anything.
