However, MS Dhoni never gave any public statement about the incident. While the video went viral and people were conjecturing about his retirement, the cricketer was silent all this time.

 

 

But in a surprising turn of events, captain cool MS Dhoni has finally opened about the viral ball collecting video while shrugging off the retirement rumors. In a recent interview, MS Dhoni provided a reason to the ball collecting scene and we all can agree with him. In his statement, he said:

“I took the ball to see why we are not able to get enough reverse swing. Because we will be playing the World Cup in England, we have to (ensure) that we get the reverse swing going. Because it is something that is very important! If the opposition is getting it, we should also get it, at some point or the other. After 50 overs, the ball is useless to the ICC (International Cricket Council), so I requested the umpire ‘Can I get the ball and gave it to the bowling coach?”

 

 

Later he added:

“We need to work on it as to how we can get it more scuffed up so that we can get a bit of reverse swing going, that will in-turn help the fast bowlers get those yorkers or wickets in and around the 40th over mark. That would really help us restrict the opposition by not getting too many runs in the last 10 overs.”

 

 

While shutting down the rumors about his retirement from the cricketing world, he said that he will be back on the field during the next ODI series of India in the Asia Cup 2019 in UAE.

Currently, the Indian Cricket team in is England playing the five-match Test series against the host country under the captaincy of skipper Virat Kohli and leadership of wicket-keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
