Team India is having a merry run in the limited overs cricket in the recent times. They have found a very successful spin bowling pair in Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav in the white ball cricketer. The phenomenal run of form of these two gentlement has reflected immensely on the end results for the Indian team. Recently, team India beat England in the T20I series and are now looking good to dominate the ODI series as well.
When the Indian team had toured South Africa earlier this year, the spin twins had scalped 33 wickets among themselves in the ODI series. The Indian team will be hoping for a similar show in England. The way these young spinners will fare up in England remains to be seen.
For now, their recent appearance in a web show is making all the headlines. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav featured in the web show named ‘What the Duck!’ hosted by Vikram Sathaye. In the show, they made some very interesting revelations. Kuldeep narrated the story when the Australians sledged him big time. The chinaman also recalled the time when MS Dhoni had given him a mouthful during an ODI game.
Chahal and Kuldeep have often credited their success to MS Dhoni. They have never been shy in admitting that Dhoni has been giving them the best suggestions from behind the stumps. At the show, the two spinners remarked that Dhoni has an excellent ability to read the game very quickly. Furthermore, in an interesting anecdote, Yuzvendra Chahal recalled his first meeting with MS Dhoni.
Chahal first met Dhoni in the Indian team in Zimbabwe. He remembered addressing Dhoni as ‘Dhoni Sir’. Dhoni, the humble man that he has always been, was quick to chip in by asking the youngster to not call him sir. “Mahi, MS Dhoni, Dhoni, Mahendra Singh Dhoni – Call me anything but don’t me call ‘sir’,” MS Dhoni had told Chahal.
