Mirpur, Mar 4: India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni expressed his condolences at the demise of New Zealand cricket great Martin Crowe terming him as a "fantastic human being" like the rest of his compatriots.
"Frankly speaking, I've not seen Martin Crowe play much. Because I was not a keen watcher of the game. But I have heard about him a lot. But as is the case with 99 per cent of the New Zealand players, they are fantastic human beings.
"I have had the opportunity of interacting with a lot of New Zealand players. It is a sad day for cricket but at the same time it is very important to give respect to the individual and we pray God to give strength to his family. And keep moving on. It's a sad day for cricket," Dhoni said at the Asia Cup 2016 in Bangladesh.
Crowe passed away yesterday (March 3) after a long battle with cancer.
