“Most of us started playing cricket when we were five. I think this is the period when the Indian cricket moves forward,” said Dhoni addressing the players. “We have a set of batsmen who are into the Test arena, we have a pool of bowlers… this will be the phase that will be very interesting.”

“All of you wont have a very good series, some of you will fail. But with seventeen Test matches, all of you would be successful. So it’s important to enjoy the period which is tough. But till you stick together and till you enjoy as a group, I don’t think there is anything that will stop you. So make sure to have a lot of fun,” said the former Test captain.
