It is hard to argue against the leadership abilities of the Indian wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni who has led the men in blue to major trophies across the three formats of the game. The aggressive cricketer has also been a huge success in the highly competitive Indian Premier League (IPL) where he leads Chennai Super Kings.
Recently, South African paceman Lungi Ngidi reflected on the experience of playing for Chennai under Dhoni in India’s T20 extravaganza. The 23-year old never felt away from home while paying for CSK as Dhoni and the coaching staff made him feel special. Ngidi added that the Indian veteran made him learn the art of taking the responsibility as he always backed the South Africa’s pace sensation to do well in the crunch situations.
“It was a great experience to play under his captaincy as I learned a lot. He gave me a lot of responsibility and backed me to do well. Moreover, the coaching staff and all the other players were very supportive, so it all helped me ameliorate my skills,” said by Durban while applauding MS Dhoni’s captaincy.
