Having a passion for sports at a young age has its own perks. It keeps you fit, healthy, is a great career choice no matter what the sport is and apparently it also helps you to steer clear of bullies, it worked for MS Dhoni atleast.

The former India skipper recently revealed that he was never bullied at a young age as he used to play with boys who were much older to him. "I don't think I was ever bullied. One of the reasons could be that often, people who are very small, thin or timid, you tend to get away without being bullied; if someone is very cute and cuddly, he/she also gets away with things. I was small and timid," Dhoni told The Print.

"Another reason could be that I used to play with Quinton Dial Jersey boys that were much older to me, and they saw me as a younger brother. We lived in a colony and were only two or three of us that were of the same age group, the other children were at least five or six years older to us."
Playing cricket with older boys also helped Dhoni improve his game."Maybe that is one of the reasons that I play cricket well, because I have always played cricket with people who were older than me, http://www.officialnikejetshop.com/lawrence-thomas-jersey-for-sale-c-31.html which meant that they had more power and they understood the game better. Playing with them made me better.
Dhoni also said Quinton Dial Jersey that even when he was playing domestic cricket at the under-16 and under-19 levels, he never faced any bullying in the dressing room."So as far as bullying is concerned, I do not think we were bullied at any point of time. Even when we started playing cricket at the under-16 or under-19 level, we were never bullied. Often, it depends on the seniors - how the seniors are in the team environment affects the nature of the team, and the juniors also get groomed according to them. What is important is that you keep on passing the baton to the next generation.
Dhoni also condemned the act of bullying and said, "Bullying is not a thing that should happen. In a society, it does happen, but there are ways to deal with it. One of the effective ways is to pass on the culture of being against the concept of bullying, and the culture of being nice to people. That is what life is all about."

A few former India players, including VVS Laxman and Ajit Agarkar, recently Quinton Dial Jersey raised questions about Dhoni's T20I future, creating quite a storm in the country's cricketing circles."People should look back at their career before commenting on Dhoni. The captain has a lot of cricket left in him and it is the duty of the team to back Quinton Dial Jersey the legend," Shastri said.
Shastri was having a look at the bat autographed by the 2011 World Cup winning Indian team at the Fanattic Sports Museum.The coach further said the culture of the current team is based http://www.authenticdodgersstore.com/Authentic-Enrique-Hernandez-Jersey on performance and quality."There is no one better than Dhoni on the field given his http://www.giantsnflofficialonline.com/YOUTH+ELI+MANNING+JERSEY ability behind the wicket and with the bat and his presence of mind and sharpness on the field."
Shastri lauded the players' athleticism and said: "In terms of fielding this team is the very best in the world at the moment and that's something that separates this team from Indian teams of the past."India will take on Sri Lanka in three Tests beginning with th
