Mahendra Singh Dhoni is counted among the great captains of India. Under Dhoni's captaincy, the Indian team has won 3 major ICC titles. While Dhoni was a wicketkeeper, many players came and went to the Indian team, but no one could take Dhoni's place. There is more than one talented player in the Indian cricket world. But he faded in front of Dhoni's brilliance. We are telling you about one such cricketer, whose career ended because of Dhoni.
That player is Parthiv Patel. Parthiv Patel made his Test debut against England on 8 August 2002 and became the youngest player to make his Test debut as a wicket-keeper batsman. At that time his age was 17 years 153 days and to date, his record is maintained.

Dhoni continued to perform well as a wicket-keeper batsman and then became the captain of the Indian team. Parthiv Patel did not get many opportunities to play in the Indian team because of Dhoni
