Bengaluru, July 3: After Indian cricket team as the members had a unique team bonding session with acclaimed actor-musician Vasundhara Das's group 'Drumjam', Team India's limited-overs skipper MS Dhoni gave an inspiring message to team members gearing up for West Indies tour.
34-year-old Dhoni, who is no more a part of Team India's Test squad, tried to motivate the young teammates with a short, yet powerful speech.
Dhoni asked his team-mates to not forget having fun as a unit.
"We started this 45 minutes back and most of us I believe played any of these instruments for the first time. If we can have fun with this, we can have fun in cricket."
Dhoni also told the team mates that West Indies tour and upcoming series will teach them an important lesson regardless of victory or defeat.
"Stay together, all of you won't have a very good series. Some of you will fail. But, with 17 test matches, all of you will be successful. So, it is important to enjoy the period which is tough. But, till you stick together, till you enjoy, I don't think there is anything that will stop you."
The Captain Cool, who is the only skipper to have taken India to top across all formats of cricket, said enjoying life is more important than cricket.
"This is more of a life lesson than a cricket lesson. We are going to play together for the next eight years, whether we like it or not. So, we need to enjoy life together."
