Former India captain MS Dhoni retired from international cricket on Saturday. Dhoni has led India to winning triumph in World T20, 50-over World Cup and Champions Trophy 2013.
While he has been the finest captain, Dhoni has been witty with his replies too. So here are some of the statements made by Dhoni.
“I don’t study cricket too much. Whatever I have learned or experienced is through cricket I’ve played on the field,”- on being asked how he studied cricket.
“I believe in giving more than 100% on the field, and I don’t really worry about the result. If there’s great commitment on the field, that’s victory for me,” – on being appointed as captain in 2008.
“Since 2005, I have not spent much time with my family. In fact, I have spent more time at the Taj Lands End in Mumbai,” on missing home, back in 2011.
“I love being in the present. When I was playing for school, the only thing I wanted was to get selected for U-16 or U-19 district teams. When I was selected for the district I would think of the next level, getting selected for state side. I’m a person who lives in the moment,”- when asked about his future plans post-2015 World Cup.
“Self-confidence has always been one of my good qualities. I am always very confident. It is in my nature to be confident, to be aggressive. And it applies in my batting as well as wicket keeping,”- on Adam Gilchrist as his idol.
“From when I was a young boy, I read books on weapons and tanks and combat. I was so interested in the army,” said the honorary ranked of Lieutenant Colonel, well-renowned for his patriotism.
