According to Dhoni, Rohit is a wonderful talent who has done well against some of the best bowlers in the country and also from outside in the IPL matches. Dhoni says that Rohit is also a very good fielder and can also chip in with the ball if needed and therefore it is important to support him in the team.

Dhoni said that when Virat Kohli got out, Sri Lanka were having a great chance of winning the match. In the end, he was happy that India could win the game. Dhoni believes that with constant defeats, it was tough to keep up the team morale. However, if the players can learn from their mistakes and do not repeat them, the team can benefit a long way according to MS Dhoni.
