No, it isn't the real story. Dhoni was just joking.
At a promotional event in Kolkata, Dhoni was sought an answer by journalists to a comment from former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar who said the team lacked killer instinct.
What would be Dhoni's response to the legendary opener? Well, the wicketkeeeper-batsman replied in jest, "We should carry an AK-47 with a grenade launcher". Last month, there were reports at Dhoni tried his hand at AK-47 in Indore.
Dhoni was quoted by "Starsports" making this "AK-47" comment.
Gavaskar's comment had come after India had failed to win both ODI and Test series in South Africa. And now the Indian team will embark on another foreign tour, this time to New Zealand. India lost the ODIs 0-2 and surrendered 0-1 in the two-Test rubber to the Proteas.
India will play five ODIs and two Tests. The ODI series starts on January 19.
