MS Dhoni thinks he’s getting better with age, ‘like a vintage wine that tastes better with passage of time’

Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni believes that he is like a vintage wine that tastes better with passage of time. He said this when asked how come he is getting better with age.

“It’s like wine”, was his reply.

Though there has been an element of inconsistency in his batting form, his unbeaten 78 off 79 balls enabled India to post a winning score on a tough track in the last match.

The former skipper said he is happy that he got a chance to play an innings of quality after the top three has been scoring bulk of runs in recent times.

“Our top-order has been doing the bulk of the scoring in the last one-one and a half years, so it felt good to get an opportunity and score runs”, he said.

I think it was the nature of the wicket (what made the knock special). There was variable bounce and at times the pace. It was important to have a partnership at that stage. In my mind, I had 250, and we got there, with Kedar batting with me at the end. It was something the bowlers could defend, but they had to bowl well

He seemed pretty vocal while giving precious inputs to the spinners (Kuldeep and Ashwin) from behind the stumps as it was caught on stump cam.

“It’s important (to guide spinners). Kuldeep has played a lot of games in IPL but when it comes to international cricket, it’s important to know where to use your variety. Once he plays 5-10 games, he will realise it himself. The good thing is, compared to the last game, he bowled very well today,” he said.
