“When we were playing our first game against CSK this year, I went to MS Dhoni and asked him a question: ‘Sir, how come you hit 6 or 7 to bat and you are always very consistent?’

“Dhoni responded in the simplest way, saying: ‘if you hit 6 or 7, you have no idea how the pitch will behave, which pitcher will come to play, what rate he will pitch, what his variations will be, etc. You have to go out and start hitting the ball,” said Dhruv Jurel.

“It is a very thankless job. You need to be consistent. People know that there are a certain number of balls left and that you have to try to score big points on every shot. If you don’t, people will start criticizing you for not scoring runs. You have to turn off that noise,” Jurel also said.
