‘Ghar Jaao, Rest Karo’, Mahendra Singh Dhoni Advises Journalist Ahead Of Vijay Hazare Trophy Match
After relinquishing the captaincy in all formats, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a relieved man now. Undoubtedly, the most successful skipper of India, the World Cup-winning captain has now taken up another responsibility.
The 35-year-old, who was recently sacked by Rising Pune Supergiants as their skipper, has chosen to lead Jharkhand in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. And it is safe to say the former India skipper is enjoying his time away from the hustle and bustle of international cricket. The Indian batting star, who is currently in Kolkata for the domestic one-dayers, travelled with his teammates in train second class AC, his first train journey in 13 years.
Meanwhile, PN Singh, Jharkhand’s manager, recently confirmed Dhoni would be staying at a hotel near Eden Gardens. However, the hotel will be a different one from the one Dhoni used to live in with the Indian team.
As quoted in Circle of Cricket, Singh said:
“Should the team decide to stay in Kalyani, some 51km away from Kolkata, where they play on Tuesday, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, 23rd on Forbes’ list of the world’s best-paid athletes in 2015, will be at the CAB’s academy lodgings there.”
The youngsters are also excited to share the dressing room with Dhoni.
“I haven’t spent much time with him, am looking forward to doing that, There are no words to express what it means to be sharing a dressing room with MS Dhoni, I am not scared of him but I keep my distance… (However,) I hope I can speak to him about his leadership qualities and the ability to stay cool under pressure,” said Jharkhand batsman Virat Singh.
And spending some time away from international cricket, it seems, has made Dhoni so relaxed that he has been advising everyone to take rest at home.
When the explosive batsman was approached by a journalist during his practice session in the Eden Gardens, he said: “Ghar jaao, rest karo, (go home and take rest).”
