Dhoni Gets Asked About Retirement Again; Here’s His Latest Reply
“I’m not getting rid of myself so soon. Bangladesh will have to face me more often than not. This is one occasion when the question was longer than the answer,” said MS Dhoni when a Bangladeshi reporter asked him a long and winded question with basic intent of trying to know if this is the last time that the limited-overs skipper will be playing in the country.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni feels the current Indian team is a balanced side which can take on any team anywhere in the world at least in the shortest format of the game after they notched up their ninth win out of 10 matches.
Dhoni added, “We now have three proper seamers, two spinners and if needed part-timers. I think it is the right combination. And even if you go for a few extra runs, with the batting that we have - till No 8, I think we can look to get those extra runs if the opposition scores off us.”
On a serious note, Dhoni said that he expects the final to be a tough one as Bangladesh knows the conditions well.
As I said, any good team if they are the home team, they will always know the conditions very well. So to beat a home team is always difficult. Also Bangladesh, over the years has developed a lot. They have improved their strength. They know the condition well, as I have said. It will be a good final.MS Dhoni
