Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Indian cricket’s undisputed Mr. Cool, on and off the field, seems to have lost it a bit. In a press meet at Kolkata, while responding to a question whether India lacks killer instinct to win overseas, Dhoni said “We should carry an AK 47 with a grenade launcher”. Perhaps Dhoni was miffed with Gavaskar who actually commented on Indian team’s killer instinct, yet he should have kept in his mind his status as a youth icon before talking about guns etc, which are a problem in this age all over the world.
At the same venue, Dhoni said that he would be leading the country team in all three formats. He had been saying that the loss at SA was not as bad as it looks. Now that India would be touring alot starting with New Zealand, the team would get a good exposure to playing overseas, he surmised.
