Here’s the reason behind one of the open ended statements made in MS dhoni, the untold story – ” Match hum field pe nahi, Basketball court pe haar gaye the “.
As shown by the video from 5ocial , during his Bihar trophy match, he faced his first ball from Yuvi and hits a six. After this , till end of the day he does aggressive batting and no wicket falls. After going back home from stadium, Dhoni’s team mates saw Yuvi passing by the basketball court. He gave an attitude-full look to Dhoni. The scene ends here only.
Yuvraj batted and scored 358 runs, more than total of Bihar’s score.
After coming back home, Dhoni made a statement in the movie ” Match hum field pe nahi, Basketball court pe haar gaye the “. By saying this, he meant that when his team mates saw Yuvi in the basketball court, they were driven by his impressive personality. They stopped all of a sudden and said ” kya player hai” . At that time yuvi was famous for his captaincy and under-19 cricket. They percieved him as a superior criketer rather than an opponent. They lost the hope that they can defeat him. Dhoni had predicted it in advance. Its his appreciable quality that he can differentiate between emotion and skills.
He doesn’t wonder when he didn’t get selected. He works harder and gets inspired by this instance.
