Pujara, in an interview to the BCCI’s website said that he would judge himself on how he fared in “tough overseas conditions.”
Dhoni reacted yesterday by saying, “I think he watches too many media channels because that’s what really happens. I have always said you need to be in the present.
“Of course, he has set his own standards but what is important to enjoy what you have done. What he has done or what anyone has done. No point in saying you have done well in India; go out and do it and we will judge you as a batsman.”
Dhoni continued: “We all love to comment that way, but it’s also important to enjoy the moment. You have done well; so enjoy the moment. That will be my suggestion to him. He will score runs… that’s a different story.”
After winning the opening Test in Chennai, Dhoni revealed that he does not read the sports sections of newspapers and that has helped him.
