For Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, temperament is far more important than technique

Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni believes that temperament is far more important than the technique.

Captain Cool was quoted by Times of India saying, "A lot of people talk about technique but what is important for me is that a better player is one who responds to the situation. Our opening duo in Rohit and Shikhar did wonders by giving those ideal starts in the league phase which setup the tone of this tournament quite beautifully for us.  As far as our fielding is concerned, there has been a cultural change.”
Dhoni gave credit to BCCI for giving World-class facilities to the players in India and make them ready for the big moments. He was quoted by The Hindu saying, "I am the oldest in this team and during our younger days we used to roll over while the youngsters now dive, slide due to lush green outfields.”

Indian captain is now looking forward to the next match that India will play in the West Indies in the first week of July. The charismatic captain was quoted saying, “What matters is the next game. We are going to West Indies now. Winning is important for the team. I am happy my players are playing well when it matters. Some of our players are experienced in international cricket. New players have played IPL matches in front of thousands."

Meanwhile the reports published in Deccan Chronicle quoted the dashing opener, Shikhar Dhawan, saying “I love bouncy tracks as it suits my game. I practice hard in the nets and I am enjoying every moment of it. It's doubly special as I was out for two years. I always knew I had the talent but I wasn't scoring that many runs."

Ravindra Jadeja, Man with the golden ball was quoted by Deccan Herald saying,"I did well throughout the tournament and I was very positive. It was quite difficult to rotate the strike, so myself and Virat just tried to build a good partnership. I was enjoying the bowling on this wicket. The skipper always backs me when I bowl."

Alastair Cook was devastated after the under-par performance by his team and said," It's tough to take at the moment. I think both sides found the pitch quite hard to bat on. You are always going to think of different reasons. I'm proud of the way the players have performed in this tournament. With 20-odd needed off 16 balls it was in our hands. There have been a lot of good performances, but at the moment we are a bit devastated."
