The 38 year old Indian cricketer talked about controlling his emotions and recalled the 2007 ICC World T20
Legendary cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni attended the launch of Mastercard Team Cashless India. It is a nationwide initiative to promote digital payments in the country. They aim consumers to adopt this method of payment.
It was MS Dhoni’s first public appearance since the team’s exit from the World Cup. He missed the West Indies tour and the ongoing home series against South Africa. There had been speculations about his retirement, however, none has been announced.
Dhoni spoke about how he controls his emotions. ‘I am like everyone else but I control my emotions better than some of the other individuals’, said Dhoni. ‘I would say, I feel equally frustrated. I also feel angry at times, disappointed. But what is important is that none of these feelings are constructive’.
The legendary batsman also recalled the 2007 ICC World T20 in South Africa where they bowled out Pakistan.
‘There was something particular about that World Cup. The 'bowl-out' was one of the things. I remember we would go for practice. Before every practice session, we would practice “Bowl Out” before or after the warm-up. We said it very clear, it is for fun but at the same time, whoever hits the wicket most number of times, we will use him if the situation arises’, he said.
MS Dhoni is scheduled to meet the board of selectors on October 24. He will discuss his future with the selectors.
