Kolkata: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has been criticised by some former Indian cricketers about his demand for rank turners, Tuesday took a dig at his critics saying he was not bothered.

"I don't have a platform like them. I am not on TV assessing neither do I write columns," said Dhoni when asked to comment about former players criticising him.

"Criticism is a big part and parcel of the game, especially in Indian cricket. You get a lot of support when you perform well. But the same people run you down when you do not do well," he said. (Also read: Cook too favours turners)
