Sourav Ganguly for Dhoni, rest is the history of cricket: Kiran More

MS Dhoni is a legendary cricketer. He has earned a special place in the history of cricket as the most successful captain in his career and even the best finisher. There are many interesting associations behind the great players reaching that level. Something similar happened in the case of Dhoni. This was recently revealed by former selection committee chairman Kiran More. In the 2003-04 Dilip Trophy final, Deep das Gupta said how hard it was for them to play MS Dhoni and how hard it was to convince then captain Sourav Ganguly.

At that time, the Indian national team did not actually have a regular wicket-keeper. Legendary player Rahul Dravid is also carrying those responsibilities. He was successful as a key batsman and keeper on the team. He also played in the 2003 World Cup. However, the selectors felt that this should not continue for long and that the Indian team needed a regular wicket-keeper. At the same time, chief selector Kiran More came to know about Dhoni, who is shining brightly in domestic cricket.

Went to see him play live. The team made a total of 170 runs in that match, of which Dhoni had 130 runs. More, who was captivated by the tribe after watching him play, wanted him to play for East Zone in the Dilip Trophy final. For this the then Captain Ganguly accompanied him. Dada, however, wants to play Deepadas Gupta from Kolkata in the final. Kiran More said that they had to work very hard to convince Ganguly. 

Dhoni made 21 off the first innings of the final and 60 off 47 balls in the second innings. Dhoni was immediately sent to the triangle tournament in Kenya for India A team. That includes Pakistan A team. The tournament marked a turning point in Dhoni’s career. He did 600 runs in one go. That is why I keep saying that we want to give a chance to a cricketer who has something special. Dhoni has it all.
