Many cricket pundits call former India wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel unlucky to be born in the same era as MS Dhoni but the Gujarat captain doesn't agree. Patel who is now 35 feels that he was not unlucky but on the contrary MS Dhoni made it count when he started playing for Team India. Patel who made his Team India debut in 2002 quickly fell out of favour when Dhoni started playing for the national side in 2004. Parthiv feels that Dhoni performed well and that kept him out of the team. Patel played 25 Tests and 38 ODIs for Team India and last walked out with the Men in Blue in 2018 in Test vs South Africa.
