Earlier, Tendulkar had praised India’s captain MS Dhoni before ICC World T20 2016, “The biggest asset of Dhoni is his ability to absorb the pressure which has made him a good captain. He has matured over the years. He does not show even when he is tense which is a good sign. Often a captain who is short-tempered or nervous can create panic among ranks which is not the case with Dhoni,”
