Having relinquished limited overs captaincy after leading India to two World Cup triumphs during an eventful tenure that spanned nearly a decade, Dhoni captained the Men in Blue for one last time in a warmup game against England on Tuesday night. The perfect finish may have eluded him, as his team lost by three wickets, but Dhoni, in a video chat with Yuvraj Singh, assured that he would continue to hit those trademark sixes if they are to be hit.
“If they bowl in my areas, the right areas and the situation permits I would look to hit sixes,” Dhoni told long-time teammate Yuvraj. Dhoni’s stint at the helm had more ups than downs, and he called it amazing. “The journey has been good, fantastic... It’s good to have players like you (looking at Yuvraj), the job becomes much easier. And enjoyed my 10 years, hopefully I will enjoy more whatever I have.”
Referring to Yuvraj’s six consecutive sixes in the inaugural World T20, Dhoni told Yuvraj, “Thanks to you I witnessed the six sixes from the best seat.” Dhoni was at the non-striker’s end while Yuvraj bludgeoned Stuart Broad. Yuvraj posted the video on social media after the match got over in which he asked a couple of very interesting questions to Dhoni, who answered each question in his typical manner.
