Treated like a terrorist after 2007 World Cup defeat: MS Dhoni
New Delhi: In a shocking revelation, Indian limited overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Friday disclosed that he was treated like a terrorist or murderer by the media after Men in Blue knocked out of World Cup 2007.
Rahul Dravid led Indian Cricket team was crashed out in the very early stage of the contest tasting defeats to minnows Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Mahi was at the promotional event in New York for his upcoming biopic on him ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’.
What MS Dhoni said:
- When we landed in Delhi, there was a lot of media. At times, people feel that we are not emotional enough about it, but I always felt, as sports persons, you have to be strong enough to go through everything and it has to be within yourself.
- At that point of time, when we landed, we had to get out in a police van. I was sitting next to Viru [Virender Sehwag] paaji.
- Media cars around us with their cameras and the big lights on top, it felt as if we had committed a big crime, maybe like a murderer or terrorist or something. We were actually chased by them.
Calling the same as a major turning point of his career, MSD said, “That actually had a big impact on me and I channelised the aggression to become a better cricketer and a better human being."
It could be mentioned here that after India’s loss in the World Cup, MS Dhoni was made the skipper of T20 World Cup 2007. India had won the T20 World Cup.
