No one took World Twenty20 seriously in 2007: Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Mirpur: Things have changed a lot for MS Dhoni since that September evening when he led India to World T20 triumph at Johannesburg in 2007, and the Indian captain feels that those changes are happening not just within him but also around him.

What changes do you see since that inaugural World T20 victory as a young captain in 2007? "Well, I see a lot more media out here then what it was back then," Dhoni replied with a smile.

"No one took the tournament seriously back then. T20 was discussed in a joking way," Dhoni said.

Dhoni said he could see a lot of changes taking place. "Now when I look at the mirror, I can see a lot of grey beard!," he said.

Talking about pressure of expectations, Dhoni said, "It's like having 100 kgs put over you. That's good enough to weigh you down. After that even if you put a mountain, it will not make a difference."
