Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal told why MS Dhoni’s presence in the team is important for the young bowlers. He explained how Dhoni used to solve his problems in no time. On the other hand, he also took to his social media account to showcase his love for Rohit Sharma.
Chahal on Mahi
In an interview with Times of India, Chahal revealed why he needs MS Dhoni to guide him when Virat Kohli fields at the boundary. “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 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. 50 percent of the problem he solves before I come on to bowl. The same happens with Kuldeep too. He (Dhoni) is a problem solver for Kuldeep and I.”
He also recalled how Dhoni contributed during his five-wicket haul in South Africa. During the 2018 Centurion ODI against the hosts, Chahal claimed his first five-wicket haul for just 22 runs. According to him, “In South Africa, when I took my first five-for. JP Duminy was batting at that time. I wanted to dismiss him. Mahi bhai came to me and said ‘isko seedha stump to stump daal’ (Just bowl straight to him – stump to stump). He went back behind the stumps and shouted again – ’tilli, isko dande pe hi rakhna’ (Just bowl straight to him). I followed his instructions. Duminy tried to sweep but got out lbw.”
Chahal on Rohit Sharma
On Wednesday, Chahal also took to his social media profiles to share a throwback picture with Rohit Sharma. The picture shows Chahal pointing at the hitman who is not much interested in the frame and looking at a different side. The caption put by Chahal is an adorable one where he mentioned Rohit Sharma as his big brother.
Chahal wrote, “I don’t need a superhero, I have a big brother 🤙🏻 #throwback”. It seems that the 29-year-old Yuzvendra Chahal is seriously missing his ‘old’ buddies and team members. He definitely cannot wait to hit the ground with his beloved colleagues.
