MS Dhoni recalls past memory
“Kharagpur me mere railways ka job tha aur us samay Bengali meri bahut achhi thi. Ab bhi bolunga toh bhulbhal bolunga, kisko kya kharaab laag jayega [When I used to work at Kharagpur in Railways, my Bengali was very well. Now if I speak, I may make mistakes], but I can understand Bengali very well,”. Dhoni said at the event.
“Interestingly, hum log Bangladesh mein match khel rahe the, toh mai batting kar raha tha. Unko nahi pata tha mujhe Bengali aati hai. Woh keeper udhar se chillake fast bowler ko bol raha tha kuch. Mujhe pehle pata tha woh kya daalne wala hai. Toh jab match khatam hua fir hum baat kar rahe the toh.. Ae Eta Bangali bujhte pare [Interestingly, once, we were playing a match in Bangladesh, and they didn’t know I understood Bengali. Their keeper was suggesting something to the bowler, so I already knew what he would bowl. So, once the match ended, they (Bangladeshi players) were talking among themselves and seeing my reaction, they were like He understands Bengali],”. MS Dhoni recalled.
“I am trying my best. As you all know, I have undergone surgery on my left knee and doctors have told me that by November it will become as normal as possible. So, if everything goes to plan then I will be playing, if not then I’ll watch the season alongside the fans and supporters.”.
