Dhoni's unique punishment for latecomers

Known for his offbeat field placements and unorthodox skills on the field, MS Dhoni is also quite a character outside the field. Paddy Upton, former mental conditioning coach for Indian Cricket Team revealed a rather interesting dressing room fact in his recently released book Barefoot. 

Upton, who joined team India's support staff in 2008 helped India achieve a number of memorable victories including the World Cup during his tenure. 

"When I joined the team Anil Kumble was the captain of the Test team and MS Dhoni was the captain of the ODI team. We had a very self-governing process" said Upton on the dressing room culture of the team. 

The test team during their initial interactions was asked as to what should be the penalty for arriving late to meetings, revealed Upton. The team left the decision to Kumble and the skipper decided to impose a fine of Rs 10,000 for any team member who attended the team meetings late.

Dhoni was asked for his opinion on a similar fine for ODI squad as well. Adding a twist to this punishment, he went one step ahead and imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 for the whole team even if one player was late. 

"Yes there should be a consequence. So if somebody is late, everybody will pay a ten thousand rupees fine!’ Upton recalled Dhoni saying. Needless to say, nobody ever got late for meetings or practice sessions.
