Ngidi was picked up by Chennai Super Kings in the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) auction. He picked up 11 wickets from seven games and contributed in their comeback.

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.”
