There might be alot said off the field but MS Dhoni made sure that did not affect his batting in anyway. In the game against Bangladesh, the skipper startled a few when he walked out on the field after the wicket of Rohit Sharma.
There might be alot said off the field but MS Dhoni made sure that did not affect his batting in anyway. In the game against Bangladesh, the skipper startled a few when he walked out on the field after the wicket of Rohit Sharma. Though India went on to win the match comprehensively, it was Dhoni who was the cynosure of the eyes for the press. Earlier in the day, senior advocate Harish Salve talking to a news channel said that, “Dhoni lied about Guru Meiyappan role; there was no need for Dhoni to lie and it is important to have independent probe into the IPL irregularities. Dhoni must answer why he lied and Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) by defending Dhoni is again compromising the situation.”
But the skipper decided to stay ‘cool’ on that matter. Even as words were being exchanged back home, Dhoni kept mum on the IPL scandal. Mahi did not take any questions unrelated to the World T20 as he answered about his team’s good dressing atmosphere was the reason behind India’s success in the World Cup. “We have a good dressing room atmosphere. The players enjoy each other’s success and push each other to do well. There will be a lot of things that happen around you but you need to focus on the job,” the skipper said at the post-match media conference,” he said.
With the confidence brimming the side again (ofcourse when you win), Team India has sealed a spot in the semis of the T20 World Cup. There might be a lot of hara-kiri going on back home, but MSD is trying to put things into the right place by performing well on the field. There might be few blips (Yuvraj Singh’s poor form, Shikhar Dhawan underperforming) but the rallying cry of moving ahead, wages on.
Even if India end up losing in the semis, the good part is that the old times have returned. The things are going as of planned, bowlers are performing well again and Team India is back on track with the winning ways.
None wouldn’t bother if Mahi kept listening to Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’, over and over and over again.
