Ngidi was an integral part of Dhoni’s game plan with the pace attack.

In a recent interview, he was obviously asked about Dhoni. Ngidi told how he learnt a lot from the veteran. He also sounded glad as Dhoni backed him. “Very good experience for me. A lot of learning happened there. I was given a lot of responsibility as well in a short space of time. He (Dhoni) backed me, the coaching staff backed me and the players did as well. So I felt I just fit in the team quickly. Playing with Dhoni, I got a lot to learn from him.”

Enjoyable experience for Ngidi

He further added that he absolutely enjoyed working with him. “Certain situations where you might be a day in the headlights, he’s able to just call me down and just remind that you know at the end of the day, it’s still a game. Very very good experience and I really enjoyed working with him.”
