MS Dhoni a relieved man, though pressure persists

Matters are looking up for Indian captain MS Dhoni following big wins over Australia in Chennai and Hyderabad that have given the hosts an unassailable 2-0 series lead, but the man himself understands the need to remain grounded. Speaking to the media following India’s innings-and-135-run win on Tuesday, Dhoni admitted to having been effected by the team’s poor run of form in the last 20 months.

“It becomes tough. You start questioning yourself. That’s the reason all of us are human beings and the only ones who say that they don’t get bothered (by defeats) are the ones who lie,” said Dhoni told reporters on Tuesday. “If you go through a tough situation, it’s bound to happen. You will feel the pressure but at the end of the day, you want to do well for your country. In that scenario, nothing works for you but you have to remain focused and not let the extra negative thoughts to creep in.” Read more
