To inspire the aspiring cricketers, some of the key members of the national squad has come up with an insight of the challenges they have faced. Indian skipper Virat Kohli went on to share his thoughts on why the sport and life should be treated in the same manner. He said, “We have always been told to treat life and sport differently, which is very wrong. On the field, we are encouraged to take risks but then in life, you need to be safe! It’s a huge gap that needs to be bridged. Cricket has taught me everything I know about life. I truly believe that sport helps shape your character as an individual; all you need is to believe in yourself. The self-belief that I learned on the field makes me believe that I can accomplish anything on or off the field.”
India's Women's T20 skipper, Harmanpreet Kaur also recalled her struggling days. She said, “I started playing cricket with the boys and I loved the sport from the first time I held a bat. People didn’t want me to play cricket, they said you don’t have a future in it. Surrendering under pressure I attended a hockey camp but that just reinstated my love for cricket. I believed I could play for the Indian team one day, but first I needed to play in a women’s team to get noticed. The biggest struggle was to get 11 girls on the field to make a team; I remember even coaching the girls at every practice session.”
Talking about his journey, MS Dhoni said: "The game has been evolving over the years and the need to have kits that are designed to suit the modern game has always been the priority for the team management and Nike. Features like the 4D quickness and Zero distractions will definitely help the team on the field."
