Dhoni, reacting to the loss*, displayed his well-known calm demeanour, saying “This happens in cricket. You win some, you lose some. If we exit the tournament early, we’ll use the opportunity to prepare for the Ashes. “When a reporter pointed out that India wasn’t even playing in the Ashes, Dhoni retorted, “So what? In India, thousands of students prepare for the IIT entrance exam, even though they have no hope of joining IIT. We are merely upholding this tradition.”
*I don’t know exactly what loss either, because I have never cared, but for non-Indian viewers, the fact that he’s the cricket captain and the Twenty20 thingie is going on implies he’s talking about cricket.
PS: OK, I was a little out of it when I put this up.
