New Delhi: Display of emotions is not something that one associates with Mahendra Singh Dhoni but the enigmatic former India skipper says he feels as strongly as anyone else, just that he is good at controlling the negative ones a lot better than most.
He has been the eternal ‘Captain Cool’ of Indian cricket but the two-time world champion leader said he goes through the entire gamut of emotions at every triumph and debacle.
“I am like everyone else but I control my emotions better than some of the other individuals,” Dhoni, who made his first commercial appearance since India’s semi-final exit from the World Cup, said on Wednesday.
Dhoni’s future has been a matter of speculation ever since India’s semifinal exit fromthe World Cup in July. The seasoned wicketkeeper-batsman is on a sabbatical right now. “I would say, I feel equally frustrated. I also feel angry at times, disappointed. But what is important is that none of these feelings are constructive,” Dhoni said. Finding solutions rather than cribbing about the problems is what works for him.
