Indian limited over captain MS Dhoni says he has no intention to retire soon and wants to focus on his game.
Dhoni said this on the release of his biopic “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story”, held here last night after some delay, was attended by Dhoni, actor Sushant Singh Rajput, why plays the role of Dhoni, and director Neeraj Pandey and Vijay Singh from Fox Star Studios.
Dhoni was asked about his next career step by a reporter about his next, Dhoni said, “It’s a difficult question to answer… when I was growing up, there were only two options in my life – playing cricket and study. When I got a job there was security that even if cricket doesn’t happen, then I have a respectable job in hand.
“…I will have to see the positive and negative side and think in which role people will like to see me. I will look into it later as right now I am playing cricket and I would like to focus on that,” he said.
Dhoni said he believes in living in the present and doesn’t care about future too much or the past also a faded memory for him.
“I take learning from my past and one needs to have goals for the future, but the important thing is the present. You have to find motivation from either family or friends or people around you. For me, my country is my biggest motivating factor,” he said.
Dhoni when picked the gloves and the bat he did not imagine that he will play for Indian team and reach this far in his career.
“I have never played cricket thinking this is my milestone. When we used to play cricket in school or park, our only aim was to win the game. Milestones can never be used to decide your future,” he said.
“Had that been the case, then Michael Phelps should have retired after winning five Olympic gold medals. It’s about how much one can continue in their work, how good one is and how one can take it forward,” he added.
The biopic on Dhoni will be released on September 30, “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story” also features Anupam Kher, Kiara Advani, and others.
Dhoni last played a limited over the match in June when India was touring Zimbabwe for a three-match ODI and three matches T20 series.
