One of India's most distinguished cricket personalities and former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni today stressed the need to be "honest" and "control emotions". When asked whether he was really as "Cool" as people think he is and what goes on in his mind and how does he control his emotions, the ODI & T20 world cup winning captain said he also feels frustrated, angry and disappointed with things around.
"I also feel frustrated, disappointed and angry. I also feel the irritation if things do not go our way. But its all about how do you channelize that. It is about whether the frustration was leading to something wrong for the team. I feel equally emotional I feel angry at times I feel disappointed but what is important is none of these are constructive. What needs to be done at the moment is more important than any of these emotions. I am just like everyone else but I just control my emotions slightly better than some of the other individuals. But we Indians are emotional and we thrive on emotions, but I always felt my emotions should be in my control and it will help me think about the process than the result as results put you under pressure."
"Republic TV is visible even from a distance," Dhoni said when the channel tried to ask him when would we see him returning to international cricket.
Dhoni also talked about how it needs to need to be handled as senior players. "The seniors must do everything to make the youngsters comfortable in the team and help him perform them to perform to the best of his ability." Talking about how important it was (as captain) to have honesty in the team, one of India's most successful captains said it was very important in cricket to honest to the core. "The seniors must be honest and lead by example."
