One has accused the other of being a wimp.There’s ‘unrest’ in the camp There’s apparent mutiny The leadership has come under question “How could a captain with such experience let a situation escalate to such an extent” they all want to know Most leaders would have gone into their shell Some would have come out with all guns blazing A few might even have avoided facing the media glare Almost all would have sulked MS Dhoni chose to indulge in satire It was almost as if he was waiting to be given a platform to show off his wholesome wit It was inevitable that he would be asked about the reported face-off between Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan before the fourth day’s play at the Gabba Even Dhoni would have known that But he was ready as always “Yeah actually that was the case Virat used a knife and he stabbed Shikhar When he recovered out of that we pushed him out to bat” he said with a smirk He was joking of course But to his credit he kept on the kind of poker-face that would do many a stand-up comedian proud Dhoni wasn’t done of course “These are all stories Marvel-Warner Bros should pick them up and make a movie out of it I don’t know where it comes from Someone from the team has actually told you this it will be interesting if you give us the name of the individual who said this because his imagination is really brilliant and he should be working for Warner-Bros movie company” Dhoni added He then plainly declared though still in a jovial tone “He doesn’t deserve to be in our dressing room because he has created something that hasn’t been there at all” You could imagine the last part sending a chill up the spine of whoever the player was Dhoni was referring to For there has always existed an Omerta code in Dhoni’s team where loyalty to the authority is of utmost importance Dhonisms The MS Dhoni press conference has almost always been more of a performance Over time it’s gained a cult status and become a whole new genre of public-speaking Metaphors analogies profound observations and jibes you get them all from a Dhoni press conference Except any usable quotes as journalists often like to complain They can often tend to be long-winding But you can never accuse Dhoni of falling short of words or being tongue-tied regardless of how controversial or how ramble-rousing the question is He might refuse to answer it like on the eve of the team’s departure to the Champions Trophy last year when the IPL fixing scandal was at its zenith But almost never can you make out what he feels really about a certain issue just by looking at his expression Because often there is none In many ways Dhoni is like a statesman delivering a speech; never gives much away but still keeps the listener interested even if not enthralled Three days ago Dhoni finished 10 years as an international cricketer During that decade he’s created a niche like nobody else has Be it with his extra-ordinary stroke-play his singular technique—both in terms of batting and wicket-keeping—or his incessantly calm demeanour despite having the weight of the world on his shoulders But he’s also gained equal notoriety and acclaim for his dealings with the press So much so that his catch-phrases from press conferences have become a ‘part and parcel’ of popular culture at least in the cricketing journalism fraternity They range from ‘If you see’ “You can say that” “X or y is someone that” “It’s up to the indiveeedual” “At the end of the day” Not to forget his unique ability to start answers with “Also” without a prelude to his sentence and his tendency to use the word “Well” at least a dozen times in every session Then there are those profound statements that you feel only Dhoni can come up with He can be the philosopher and the prophet but suddenly turn into the jester all in a space of 15 minutes—which is the minimum time you’ll spend in a Dhoni press conference “When it comes to the mind it depends on what you’re feeding into the mind You come and say ‘This is Napier’ and it believes it’s Napier” he had said in early 2009 when asked about the lack of preparation time before a Test match Or when asked about the difference between losing 4-0 in England and in Australia he had said “You die you die You don’t see which is the better way to die” But being diplomatic doesn’t mean Dhoni can’t be candid Last year in South Africa when asked about what was the toughest thing to adjust to on tours he had stated “I think being asked the same questions It doesn’t really change much If you look back to the last time we were here the questions were much the same” He’s also not shied from taking the mickey out of his teammates with Sreesanth having been among his favourite targets in the past While he once called the temperamental fast bowler a ‘tough to manage’ character he also once famously justified Sreesanth’s batting position by saying “You won’t see a Sreesanth batting like a Don Bradman just because he wants to bat like one” And of course he’s used the lack of warranty of a life-jacket analogy on numerous occasions to explain his apprehensions over DRS 10 years on Dhoni’s skills in dealing with the media haven’t really altered much since the time he owned a long-flowing mane and was not the captain of the team “A beamer always surprises you so I was a bit surprised I don’t think anybody bowls a beamer intentionally” he had said after Shoaib Akhtar had tried to knock him out in a Test match at Faisalabad where Dhoni scored his first ton in the longer format Over the years it’s the media that the Indian captain has left surprised and astounded with his incomparable and inimitable ability to sound sincere despite being elusive and of course the barrage of Dhonisms many of which might well one day attract the attention
