MS Dhoni | India Cricket | Cricket Players and Officials

"Representing the country is the best motivation for me".

In terms of wicket-keeping, Dhoni is lightning quick, in batting, his striking capabilities and strengths are unmatched. And that, for him at least, has been a welcome break.

It was officially launched by the former India captain himself in the presence of excited trainees, parents and other key stakeholders of the facility.

Earlier Indian team's head coach Ravi Shastri defending MS Dhoni said: "Looks like there are a lot of jealous people around, who just want Dhoni to have a couple of bad days".

Dhoni, who was in Dubai on Saturday, to launch his first academy in the city, though played down the entire situation. "Everybody has views in life and it should be respected", Dhoni said when he was asked to comment on Agarkar's remarks. "I have always felt that sports is one way of learning about life. At the same time, how you stand up to criticism, and how you have an open mind about learning and improving yourself".

Earlier, the former cricketer, Virender Sehwag countered the criticism directed towards Dhoni and clarified that team India is yet to find his ideal replacement. However, with his hitting and finishing prowess on the wane, and the expectations still sky high, his failures are often over scrutinised.

After retiring from the Test format in 2014, Dhoni has remained the man behind the stumps in T20I and ODIs.

"Representing the country is the best motivation for me", he pointed out. It is a hard one and I used to play it in tennis ball cricket but I realized it is very hard to implement it in a proper cricket game.

One of Gavaskar's pet theories is people invariably go at a player touching 30 years and are charitable to youngsters who may not have anything to show by way of performance for long stretches.

However, post the 50-over World Cup win in 2011, which Dhoni sealed with a timely 91 and his patented helicopter shot, reality struck, and an ageing team kept losing in unfamiliar conditions. "But great players like him decide their own future".

Dhoni, then a ticket inspector with the Indian Railways, had escaped all attention bar the odd whisper among the followers of club cricket in Kolkata until he was 23 when he blasted two centuries in a triangular 50-over tournament for India A in Nairobi in 2004.

"I have always believed that process is more important than results". I have never thought about the results. "So I don't think anyone else has the right to decide that for him", added Kohli.
