She also said that Dhoni deserves a massive celebration as has bid a farewell to international cricket without it, if he demands, BCCI shall give him that.
“I think that if he (Dhoni) wanted to make a celebration out of it (retirement), he would. I think we should give him that. I think he is a big enough star or has achieved enough, be secured enough to say, ‘I am going to walk out a bit quietly and respectfully.
“I think that is what makes him the Captain Cool, that’s what makes him MS Dhoni because he is someone who has achieved so much not only for himself but for the country,” Sania said in an interaction on Sportskeeda’s Facebook page.
“Dhoni is a person who reminds me of my husband Shoaib Malik in terms of personality. The behaviors of the two are so similar. Both are silent by default. Enjoy at the same time. Both are very calm on the field. There are a lot of similarities between Dhoni and Malik,” said Sania.
“I do a bit of work with a psychologist and that helps me stay calm. Both I and my husband are in a high-pressure environment and imagine both of us have had a bad day and come back to the same house, there needs to be sanity. So, I take help with a psychologist for things like that,” said the tennis star.
