What he said:
“I want to go to war with this guy.”
Gary Kirsten is so impressed with Mahendra Singh Dhoni that he would not mind charging off to war, as long as he has the Indian skipper by his side. Kirsten feels that he was the “inspiration” to the Indian squad because of his work ethic whereas Dhoni’s “presence” was the calming influence.
What he really meant:
"Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the best person to have beside you, watching your back in battle.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“We’ve read ‘The Art Of War’ like a zillion times.”
