Ex-India Captain MS Dhoni Plays Esports 15 Times More Than Cricket

Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has claimed that ex-Indian skipper MS Dhoni is one of the biggest fans and spends more than 15 times more time playing esports than he plays cricket. 

“Yes, every cricketer in the Indian team plays esports,” said Singh. “I have also played. Our former captain, MS Dhoni, he plays esports 15 times more than the cricket he plays. After matches, if you see him in the hotel room, he spends his time playing esports. Sometimes, FIFA, sometimes PUBG, sometimes other games. Esports is a big, big thing. We cricketers also used to form teams and play these first-person shooter games online.”

Singh also explained the dynamics of the industry have changed from one they used to play for entertainment to one which people are using to make careers. He made a bold claim stating that the industry will grow in unimaginable ways in the future. 

“For us, it’s a new thing…we used to play for the sake of entertainment. But people are making a career out of it now. There are analysts for them, there are discussions around it and even coaching is provided to make them understand the nuances of the game. Not only the players, but many people are now associating with it in order to be something.”
