Internet Desk: Mahendra Singh Dhoni's had a nice hit back at his critics who wanted his retirement from T20 by claiming "everybody has their own views in life".

Former Indian cricketers with the likes of Ajit Agarkar questioned Dhoni's presence in the team by claiming that in his place, new upcoming youngsters should be tried out. Joining Agarkar's view VVS Laxman cited the same reason.

However, the two-time World Cup winning captain, as is his wont, seemed unperturbed.

"Everybody has views in life and it should be respected," Dhoni said when he was asked to comment on Agarkar's remarks.

Dhoni, who won the 2007 inaugural World T20 as captain with a young India team and the 2011 ODI World Cup, struggled to get going as India lost by 40 runs in the second T20I against New Zealand in Rajkot.

The 36-year-old, though, still finds enough motivation wearing the India colours.

"The biggest motivation is being a part of the Indian cricket team. You have seen cricketers who are not god-gifted, but even then, they have gone far. That's because of the passion. The coaches need to find that out. Everybody doesn't play for the country."

Dhoni was in the bustling metropolis to launch his global cricket academy, inaugurating the MS Dhoni Cricket Academy-- his first international academy, in association with Dubai- based Pacific Ventures

"I have always believed that process is more important than results. I never thought about results, I always thought what is the right thing to do at that point of time whether it's 10 runs needed, 14 runs needed or 5 runs needed.

"I was always so engrossed in the process that I never took the burden of thinking what if the results don't go my way."
