Yet again, the Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni had to face questions on his retirement as India lost to West Indies in the semi-final of ICC World T20 tournament.
This time, Dhoni probably knew that the question was going to come and he called the journalist to sit right next to him and triggered the conversation.
Dhoni: Come here, let’s have some fun. I am serious, come here,
Dhoni: You want me to retire?
Journalist: Not that I want. That’s what I want to ask you.
Dhoni: I was hoping it was an Indian media guy because I can’t really ask you if you have a son or a brother who is a wicketkeeper. Do you think I am unfit, looking at my running?
Journalist: No. You’re very fast.
Dhoni: Do you think I can survive till the 2019 World Cup?
Journalist: You should, yes, sure”
Dhoni: Then you have answered the question.
The journalist with a grin on his face walked away from the dais, where Dhoni cheekily said, “I wish it was an Indian mediaperson. Then I would have asked if he has a son who is a wicketkeeper and ready to play. He would have said no, then I would have said maybe a brother who is a wicketkeeper and who is ready to play. You fired the right ammunition at the wrong time.”
