Tiruvallur: Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has said he would not have played for India if he had not played for the school and district teams.
Dhoni attended the Friday function of the Tiruvallur District Cricket Association. He then spoke in detail about the need to play for the school and district team. Dhoni played district level cricket for the Ranchi District Cricket Association team. With that he made it to the Bihar and Jharkhand state team. He continued to excel at the regional level and was named in the Indian team. After that everything became history.
“I would like to thank the Ranchi District Cricket Association at this time. First of all we should be proud of the district team we play for. I am proud to have played for India. But it would not have happened if I had not played for the school and district teams. So it was the Ranchi District Cricket Association that set up that opportunity. .
We need to have a driving force within us when playing district cricket. Because that is what will move you to the next stage. My congratulations to all the players and administrators of this association, “said Dhoni.
