Ojha reveals the reason why Dhoni never wishes his teammates good luck
Former Indian cricketer Pragyan Ojha who represented the national team across formats has now revealed the superstitious side of former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
The attacking slow left-arm orthodox bowler mentioned that MS Dhoni will never wish his teammates good luck or all the best ahead of the match. The 34-year-old veteran also revealed why Dhoni stopped wishing the players ‘all the best’ or ‘best of luck’.
Pragyan added saying that whenever the former Indian skipper wished somebody good luck, the end result turned out to be very different. Meanwhile, the left-arm spinner also added that this was exactly the main reason why the former Indian skipper stopped the practice.
“MSD will never wish his team members ‘all the best’ or ‘good luck’ before a game. Because he feels, if he wishes somebody quite a few players he has wished during a game, it ended up in a very different way. That’s maybe why he has stopped it,” said Pragyan Ojha in a chat with Sports Today.
Pragyan Ojha further added saying that he had a conversation with Dhoni about people and their sentiments. It was when the CSK captain disclosed that he never wanted to wish his teammates before a match. Last but not least, Ojha also stated that none of the players even from the opposition go to Dhoni before a match.
“Once we had a conversation about people having different kinds of sentiments and that’s when he said he never wishes his players before a game. And before the game, none of the players from the opposition to go him. They don’t want any wishes from him,” concluded Ojha.
