Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir recently went down the memory lane and revisited the time when he shared room with veteran wicketkeeper-batsman M.S. Dhoni. "We were roommates for more than a month and all we used to talk about was hair because he had those long hair and how he would maintain that hair and all that stuff," Gambhir said while speaking on Star Sports Cricket Connected show.

"We remember sleeping on the floor, because we had a very small room and the first week, we were discussing how to make this room look bigger. "So, we removed the bed out of the room and then we slept on the floor on the mattresses and it was a great moment because we both were young," he added.

Meanwhile, former Proteas captain and current Director of Cricket South Africa Graeme Smith said it is hard to find anyone in world cricket that didn't get along with Dhoni. "I seriously doubt that you probably find anyone in world cricket that didn't get on with MS. He went about his business. He was calm, he was collected," Smith said.

Dhoni, who made his debut in 2004 against Bangladesh, has so far played 90 Tests, 350 ODIs and 98 T20Is for India, amassing over 17,000 international runs. He has been on a sabbatical ever since the semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup where India lost to New Zealand.
