According to reports, the wicketkeeper-batsman gave his team members a dressing down on Sunday. Dhoni told his team members that everyone needs to be truthful about injuries or any other personal issues that could affect team’s performance.
“For me, it’s the team first and then the individuals and I’d hope it’s the same with everyone else in the group,” Dhoni is said to have stated.
The other issue Dhoni dealt with was related to players’ fatigue. He said in no uncertain terms that in case anyone felt tired and not 100 per cent fit, they should take rest in order to recuperate. “If rest is the cure for an injury, a cricketer ought to opt for it rather than let fatigue or niggle become a major setback to him and to the team,” he reportedly said.
