Every Indian cricket fan is presently wondering how long MS Dhoni is going to play for India. While several greats of the game have had their opinions on the subject, South African star batsman AB de Villiers revealed what did Dhoni tell him when he asked him the same question.
In an interview with The Ring Side View, the former Proteas skipper spoke about his admiration for Dhoni, calling him “one of a kind”.
De Villiers opened about a conversation he had with Dhoni during the 2015 World Cup after India defeated South Africa by 130 runs in a group stage encounter between the two sides.
Mr. 360 said, “I have mentioned it to people before that I should do it how he (Dhoni) does it. (He is) non-stop, doing it day-in and day out. ”
“We were playing in World Cup 2015 and India beat us in Melbourne. We stood at post-match presentation and I asked him how long can he go for? How long can he do this for?
“He said I love every second of it (smiles). I said okay. He is one of a kind and I will always have respect for him for what he has achieved in his career,” De Villiers concluded.
