A humorous article that tries to find out what MS Dhoni truly meant when he made some of his famous quotes during press-conferences.

MS Dhoni, who is arguably India’s most successful captain having won two World Cups and a Champions Trophy, has always been a delight for the fans both on and off the field. The wicketkeeper-batsman who retired from Test cricket in late 2014 is brilliant when it comes to making witty quips during post-match press conferences. Dhoni is someone who certainly possesses the gift of the gab and has stumped media on various occasions with his quick-witted remarks.
