India’s restricted overs’ wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni is said to be a quiet individual with regards to dealing with things, both on and off the pitch Kashmir.
Kashmir: His smoothness was so clear once a large variety of his fans invited him with mottos of ‘ Boom Afridi’ in Kunzer amid his visit to Jammu and geographic area.
Ms. Dhoni, who retired from tests in 2014 has been heavily criticised by former cricketer due to poor performances in Virat Kohli’s limited over side.
An India-Pakistan cricket series is much more than just sport. It’s not a simple decision.
A diplomatic as well as political decision. It’s best left to the government to take a call,” said MS Dhoni who was the chief guest at the final of an Indian Army sponsored cricket tournament at Kunzer in north Kashmir.
Despite all the slogans and chants, Dhoni was in his usual self, by being calm.
the 36 years old Dhoni, who is taking a break from cricket was in town for attending the final of the chinar cricket premier league, a local tournament on Sunday.
As far as sports is concerned, it is important to have a platform, but after that, the players have to work really hard. Our country is huge and many people play cricket. The aim should be to represent the country for which you have to consistently perform at a first-class level,” Dhoni said.
Dhoni was the chief guest at the final match of Chinar Cricket Premier League, organized by Srinagar-based Chinar Corps of the Army.
“Even if there are no such facilities here, but when we were playing it was not that we had many facilities,” he said when asked about the lack of infrastructure in the state.
He said the youth in the state should also pay attention to education.
“Not only sports, education is also very important because if you see (in) Kashmir, tourism is one of the main things and if there is unrest, then tourists do not come here.
He said that education is important and having infrastructure is a must so that people study here and then can apply for jobs outside as well. At the end of the day, a person wants to do well with his life and for his family.
The former India captain, who now plays only in the limited overs format of the game, expressed hope that more players from the state will represent the country in future.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni said-There will be players (to speak to India) from here in future. There are players here who will play many matches. In IPL, the blend is additionally found in a way which group needs what kind of mix and in like manner the group is shaped. What is essential is players give more than 100 percent and perform well.
Dhoni appealed the youth to cooperate with the army to take Kashmir on the way forward towards development.
During the cricket tournament in Kunzer, which is 35 km from Srinagar, Dhoni had said, “An India-Pakistan cricket series is much more than just sport. It’s not a simple decision. It’s a diplomatic as well as political decision. It’s best left to the government to take a call.”
The Pakistan Cricket Board had sent a legal notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India, initiating proceedings to seek compensation for failing to honor the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two cricket boards in 2014. The BCCI has made it amply clear, that it won’t play any series with Pakistan, given the current tension between the two nations.
India last played a bilateral Test series against Pakistan in 2007 while the last bilateral ODI and Twenty20 International series were held in India in 2012. The two teams play each other only in International Cricket Council tournaments like the Champions Trophy, World T20, and the World Cup.
