I want to get back into a winning dressing room.”

People can win overseas, people can win as many Test matches, but it cannot be bigger than three ICC trophies, he added.”

“In the IPL, I enjoyed every bit of it because I knew that MS had a tactical mindset. He was very good tactically, know how to conrol the spinners, how to set the field against the spinners, and probably would never give up as well. He batted at No. 6 or 7 and knew that till the time he is there he can finish off the game, even if 20 are needed in one over.”

As the crowd erupts with MSD walking into the crease.

Gambhir concluded by saying
“But, at the same time, I knew that I had the bowling attack to actually challenge anyone in CSK. SO tactically I could be better thn him, probably had to be better than him in every fact to actually beat him because Dhoni is not that aggressive on field, but always knew that he is not going to give up. To beat Chennai, until you have not scored the final run you have not won the match. THere are some teams against whom if you even go close, they end up giving, but not Chennai”
