While interacting with media on Tuesday Dhoni said, more than language the coach should understand our culture and upbringing will be better for the team. The understanding between the coach and the team will result better.
“For many international coaches, coach and the team is always reflected on ground.”

Dhoni hinted on the BCCI’s decision to invite applications was sparked off due to the unavailability of overseas coaches.

BCCI has been in discussion with the names like Ricky Ponting, Stephen Fleming, Tom Moody and Daniel Vettori, over a year now. However, they did not show any interest because of the pressure.the problem is that we play cricket very much its not like we play for 3 months and rest for 2 months. From an availability point of view, we will have to see what the best option for the team is” said Dhoni.

He added that if someone in the team does not understand something they ask what is it, and so the language has never been a problem.
