Dear MS Dhoni,
Indians love melodrama. Cricket is a religion and its followers have unreasonable demands from cricketers. This is a country where a cricketer’s house was attacked by stones after he failed to perform in a match. This is a country where a cricketer’s girlfriend was blamed for his performance. It is, therefore, important to have a celebrity like you in this country. Your equanimity has taught the nation that at the end of the day, cricket is just a sport. You taught us to listen to our inner voice and back it during tough times. I remember the T20 World Cup where you chose a lesser known bowler to bowl the last over.
Unlike other cricketers, you chose to walk away quietly. That’s your style….You truly believe that cricketers are human beings and your decision to resign without any noise is a proof of this.
All the best for your future endeavors.
