Though he was not interested in playing cricket his football coach sent him to play cricket where he is selected as a wicketkeeper. Dhoni focused on cricket after the 10th standard. He said that “I loved sports right from the very start. When I was in school, I used to play a lot of other sports as well, and it would be wrong for me to say that I wanted to become a professional cricketer. For two years, I played proper football. I was the second goalkeeper for my school team, but our cricket team also needed a wicketkeeper. That was the time when people asked me to try wicket keeping, and I use to keep wickets when we were playing cricket. The reason was that I was very small, timid, short at that time, so maybe all the seniors thought that was the best place for me to be. In school, I also perused badminton and was very active when it came to the annual sports participation, whether it was track and field events or other sports. So, cricket just… everything happened at the right time and I became a cricketer.”
