MS Dhoni, the former Indian skipper is regarded as one of the most successful skippers in the history of the Indian cricket team. Though he has already hanged his boots from the position of the skipper, but his presence on the field has always worked in favor of team India.
Recently, Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal opened up about the impact of MS Dhoni on his bowling, stating that he turns to MS Dhoni, whenever he needs any help.
Recently, in an interview with TOI, Chahal revealed various instances when MS Dhoni’s intelligence and advice helped him get wickets. He said:
“Mahi bhai is one the best and greatest players India has produced. He has helped me and Kuldeep during matches. Some times, a batsman hits me for boundaries and then he comes, puts his hands around my shoulder and says ‘isko googly daal, ye nahi khel payega’ (Bowl him a googly, he will not be able to play),”
Chahal revealed how MS Dhoni used to figure out that he wants to ask something or needs any advice. He said:
“After 40 overs, Virat bhaiya fields at the boundary and you need someone to teach you and guide you. Sometimes, I look at Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) and he gets to know from my body language that I want to ask something or have some confusion. He comes to me and resolves those issues,”
Yuzvendra Chahal also claimed that MS Dhoni has still a lot of cricket left in him and he hopes that Dhoni soon makes his international comeback. He said:
“I believe there is so much of cricket still left in Mahi bhai. His comeback will be good for us. But that’s his decision,”
Meanwhile, the former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni was all set to return back to action for his team CSK in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League, however, the cash-rich league was suspended because of the Coronavirus pandemic. MS Dhoni hasn’t featured for team India since the semi-final loss of India during the 2019 World Cup.
MS Dhoni’s future in cricket has become one of the most discussed things in the cricket world. Several current and former cricketers have thrown weight behind the CSK skipper, stating that there is a lot of cricket left in him.
